    Up to date, the high fuction,low price,good reliability,power function,new series products enhanced greatly in the aspects of measurement,accuracy,measurement stability,communication protocol,easy to use etc. easy and reliable production line,good conformity of the products that gurantees each instrument reach the best function before leaving factory.

The main board is suitable for any kinds of transducers,including clamp-on type,insertion type, π in-line type,standard in-line type and same kinds of transducers from other manufacturers.the pipe parameters and calibration parameters of water meter and in-line pipe are input by manufacter,users do not need to input any parameter,only need to connect with flowmeter to work.

Applied to on-line measure and system monitor for nearly all liquids from petrol chemical,metallurgy,electric power plant,irrigation,city water company,energy monitor fields,realize the functions of measuring and checking of flow velocity,flow rate,accumulation and heat quantity of different liquids,and flow rate on/off,liquids distinguish.




θ The angle between the ultrasonic beam and the flow

M Transit times of the ultrasonic beam D The internal diameter of the pipe Tup Transit time in the forward direction Tdown Transit time in the reverse direction ΔT=Tup –Tdown                                    


F is instant flow rate(unit:m³/hour) D is inside pipe diameter(unit:m) V is flow velocity(unit:m/s)

Choosing measurement point

   To ensure measurement accuracy and stability,the installation point of tranducers should be on the straight pipe full of well distributed fluid(when installing,the pipe must be full of liquid),comform to following principle:

        1.Pipe must be full of liquid that is uniform and easy to travel the ultrasonic beam(vertical pipe or horizontal pipe)

2. Upstream transducer should be installed at the place where the upstream length of the straight pipe is at least 10D and the downstream length is at least 5D where install the downstream transducer,so the pipe length should be straight without any valve,pump,angle head, D stands for pipe ouside diameter. The installation point should stay away from valves,pump,high pressure current,transformers interference source etc.

Avoid to install on the highest point of pipe system or vertical pipe with free exit(flow down)

For the opened pipe or half full pipe,the transducers should be installed on U pipe.

    The temperature and pressure on the installation point should be within the work ability of the transducers.

Pay more attention to the pipe scaling in inner pipe wall,do best to choose the pipe without scaling to install,if it is impossible ,then consider the scaling as liner to achieve better accuracy.

The two transducers must be installed in horizontal direction to pipe axis plane,within ±45°of axis line horizontal plane, to prevent bubbles or not full in upper pipe or sediment in down side of pipe to influence transducer measurement normaly.if there is space limit of installation that could not install horizontal symmetry,then install the transducers vertically or dip angle under the condition of no bubbles in upper parts of pipe.

Clamp on type transducer installation method

Before installation,choose density pipe to install transducers,and clean the installation area,clear away rust,paint,anti-rust layer,it is the best to use angle grinder to polish,use cleaning cloth with alcohol or acetone to clear oil and dust,coat enough couplant around the center of installation area,attach the transducers on the pipe and fix it without air bubbles or sand between transducers and pipe wall.

Installation space
Installation space of clamp on type transducer is inner edge distance of the two transducers(face to
face),after inputing the required parameters in Menu,check the display on M25,that is the installation space.
Installation method
The method has 2 kinds: V method,Z method Normaly,V method is suitable to the pipe diameters within the range: DN15-DN200mm .when using V method can not measure the signal or the signal is poor,try to use Z method that is suitable to the
diameters are more than DN200mm or measuring cast iron. V method(commonly used method)Normaly,V method is standard installation method,convenient to use with precise
measurement,when installation,the two transducers horizontally align,its centre line is horizontal with pipe axis line,suitable pipe diameter range to measure is DN15mm-DN400mm.

Z method (the most commonly used method)

When the pipe diameter is wide,or there are suspended matters in fluid,too thick scaling or liner inside pipe inner wall,that can make the flow meter can not work normaly and signal poor by using V method installation,so need to use Z method to install,its features are direct transfering without reflection(called sigle sound path),little signal attenuation.

Attention:1,when installation,it is a must to clear the pipe area where to install transducers,showing metal color

2,shield line of ultrasonic signal cable can not be connected,but not short circuit with positive and negative pole(red and black line)

3,after transducers are connected with circuits,must apply enough sealant to prevent water in. 4,after covering the transducers,must screw and lock tightly the hole for shield line of transducers to

  prevent water in.

5,use strap(stainless steel band) to fix on the center part of transducers,to make it weighted uniform,no moving.

6,apply enough couplant around the area ,so that transducers touch pipe to prevent air,sands,rust in,that influence the beam transfering.
