Accurate flow measurement in full pipe applications.
The QC-DT-1 Hybrid Ultrasonic Flow Meters can measure fluid flow in virtually any fluid in which sound waves can travel. The QC-DT-1 meters are considered "hybrid" because they can measure fluid flow using either the Doppler or Transit Time methods. The QC-DT-1 ultrasonic sound transducers are clamped to the outside of the pipe wall and include no moving parts. This method of flow measurement is safe, non-intrusive, and very easy to service.
The Doppler measurement method requires particles to be present in the flow stream to "reflect" the sound waves. The meter may be operated in the Doppler mode when the fluid contains 0.02% to 15% (200 to 150,000 ppm) of particles.
