A transit-time ultrasonic flowmeter has both a sender and a receiver. It sends two ultrasonic signals across a pipe at an angle – one with the flow and one against the flow.

The meter then measures the “transit time” of each signal. When the ultrasonic signal travels with the flow, it travels faster than when it travels against the flow. Transit Time flow meter measure the time it takes for an ultrasonic signal transmitted from one transducer to cross a pipe and be received by a second transducer.

Upstream and downstream time measurements are compared. With no flow, the transit time would be equal in both directions. Study of acoustic transducer protrusion and recess effects on ultrasonic flowmeter measurement by numerical simulation Article in Flow Measurement and Instrumentation 22(5)– October.

Today's most popular technology of ultrasonic flow measurement is based on the transit-time principle. In this paper, a numerical simulation technique applicable to the analysis of transit-time.

Difference between Transit time and Doppler Ultrasonic Flow Meter Doppler and transit time are two very popular types of flow meter for non-invasive measurement of flow in full pipes. These technologies are often confused, because they are both ultrasonic, and both measure flow by using sensors clamped onto the outside of a pipe.

This work focuses on the analysis, optimization, simulation, and the performance testing of one main component of such a measurement system - a new ultrasonic transit-time gas flowmeter for dynamically measuring the exhaust gas mass flow.

This flowmeter, used in combination with fast gas analyzer benches, facilitates the optimization and. A microcomputer-based ultrasonic gas flowmeter with transit-time method is presented. Modules of the flowmeter are designed systematically, including the acoustic path arrangement, ultrasound emission and reception module, transit-time measurement module, the software and so by: completed, the transit time (T ba) of an ultrasonic signal traveling against the flow is measured from Transducer B to Transducer A.

When there is no flow the transit time is equal in both directions and the measured time of flight difference them (T ab T ba) is zero. Thus with flow the transit time of theFile Size: KB.

Overview: Transit Time Ultrasonic Flowmeter: A pair (or pairs) of transducers, each having its own transmitter and receiver, are placed on the pipe wall, one (set) on the upstream and the other (set) on the downstream.

The time for acoustic waves to travel from the upstream transducer to the downstream transducer t d is shorter than the time it reqires for the same waves to travel from the.

Select FSSC for the following pipes: PP pipe with a thickness of 15 mm or more PVDF pipe with a thickness of 9 mm or more ; Metal pipes with coating, pipes rusting inside, pipes lined with coal tar epoxy, Teflon, mortar, or rubber, or other pipes through which the ultrasonic wave is hard to pass.

An ultrasonic flow meter is a type of flow meter that measures the velocity of a fluid with ultrasound to calculate volume flow. Using ultrasonic transducers, the flow meter can measure the average velocity along the path of an emitted beam of ultrasound, by averaging the difference in measured transit time between the pulses of ultrasound propagating into and against the direction of the flow.

Transit-time Ultrasonic Flow Meter A typical transit-time flow measurement system utilizes two ultrasonic transducers that function as both ultrasonic transmitter and receiver. The flow meter operates by alternately transmitting and receiving a burst of sound energy between the two transducers and measuring the transit time that it takes for.

The ultrasonic flow meter is designed to measure the velocity of liquid within a closed conduit. It uses the well-know transit-time measurement principle, plus our proprietary signal processing and ultrasonic transceiving technologies.

As shown in Figure 1, the utilizes a pair of ultrasonic transducers which are mounted on the pipe. The EESIFLO Sonalok X 80 and 81 are products from the series generation of flow meters certified to ATEX Zone 1 and 2, suitable for installation on all types of sonically conductive pipes containing water.

This output (Q) is actually a flow rate based on volume-per-hour, and is used to provide input to the flow computer. A is the cross-sectional area of the meter. In summary, some key points to keep in mind about the operation of an ultrasonic meter are: • The measurement of transit time, both upstream and downstream, is the primary function of the.

High concentrations of solids or gas bubbles (>2% by volume) will attenuate sound and the Transit Time ultrasonic signal may not be able to cross the pipe. A theory of transit time ultrasonic flowmeters for clean fluids is developed from the equations of fluid mechanics applied simultaneously to the fluid and the sound vibrations.

These equations are linearized (weak sound) and use is made of the electroacoustic reciprocity theorem to give a relation between the voltages and currents at the Cited by: A typical transit-time ultrasonic flow meter system utilizes two transducers that function as both ultrasonic transmitter and receiver.
