Model LC Ultrasonic Flowmeter

Model LC ultrasonic flowmeter is an instrument for measuring liquid flow in pipe based on the principle of "velocity difference method". It adopts advanced multi-pulse technology, digital signal processing technology and error correction technology to make flow meter more suitable for the environment of industrial field, and more convenient, economical and accurate measurement. The products can be widely used in petroleum, chemical industry, metallurgy, electric power, water supply and drainage and other fields.

There are three main types of ultrasonic flowmeter: wall-mounted ultrasonic flowmeter, hand-held ultrasonic flowmeter and portable ultrasonic flowmeter.

Measurement Principle

When the ultrasonic beam propagates in the liquid, the flow of the liquid will cause a slight change in the propagation time, and the change of the propagation time is proportional to the velocity of the liquid. The relationship is in accordance with the following expressions:

V=MD/sin2θ×T/TupTdown

Among them, θ is the angle between the sound beam and the direction of liquid flow, M is the number of linear propagation of the sound beam in the liquid, D is the inner diameter of the pipeline, Tup is the propagation time of the sound beam in the positive direction, and Tdown is the propagation time of the sound beam in the reverse direction, ΔT=Tup –Tdown.

The velocity of sound in stationary fluid be C, the velocity of fluid flow be U, and the propagation distance be L. When the direction of sound wave is the same as that of fluid flow (i.e. the direction of downstream flow), the propagation velocity is C+U. Conversely, the propagation speed is C-U Two groups of ultrasonic generators and receivers (T1, R1) and (T2, R2) were placed at two locations with L distance from each other. When T1 emits ultrasound along the direction, T2 emits ultrasound in the opposite direction. The time required for ultrasound to reach receivers R1 and R2 is T1 and t2, respectively, t1=L/(c+u) t2=L/(c-u).

Because the velocity of fluid in industrial pipeline is much smaller than that of sound, i.e. C > u, the time difference between them is t=t2-t1=2Lu/cc. It can be seen that when the velocity C of sound wave in fluid is known, the velocity u can be calculated by measuring the time difference t, and then the flow Q can be obtained. The method of flow measurement based on this principle is called time difference method. In addition, phase difference method and frequency difference method can also be used.

The ultrasonic flowmeter is composed of three parts: ultrasonic transducer, electronic circuit, flow display and accumulation system. The ultrasonic transmitting transducer converts electric energy into ultrasonic energy, and transmits it to the fluid under test. The ultrasonic signal received by the receiver is amplified by electronic circuit and converted into an electrical signal representing the flow for display and integration. In this way, the flow detection and display are realized.

Features

Non-contact measurement, no pressure loss.

No mechanical transmission parts, maintenance-free, long service life.

Suitable for flow measurement of any liquid, especially those with high viscosity, strong corrosion, non-conductivity and other properties. It can also measure the flow of gas.

For the flow measurement of large diameter pipeline, the cost will not be increased because of the increase of pipe diameter.

Wide range ratio, up to 5:1.
