CLAMP-ON FLOWMETERS FOR MARINE, SHIPBUILDING AND MAINTENANCE.
Marine and Shipbuilding – Various fluids flowing through thousands of meters of pipework, pipes that just cannot be opened and measuring points that are out of reach. These circumstance make it extremely difficult to perform permanent or point measurements with conventional measurement systems on commercial and military ships.
In the early 1980’s engineers realised that there was a need for a portable tool to determine the flow rates of water, cooling liquids and fuels around the various on-board systems during the later stages of commissioning. For this reason several institutions started working on the prototypes of the early generation of clamp-on flowmeters. Since then the technology has improved dramatically.
OUR SOLUTION. ULTRASONIC CLAMP-ON FLOWMETERS.
Stationary flowmeters for permanent measurements
Portable flowmeters for point measurements
Non-invasive: Measuring from the outside of the pipe (no process interruptions)
The right ultrasonic flowmeter for any situation; both portable and stationary. Various input and output configurations are possible, as well as bi-directional measurements.
The KATflow 150 is one of our ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeters for fixed installations. This instrument is used by commercial cargo boats to monitor diesel and oil consumption.
Our compact and lightweight KATflow 200 ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeter is used on both commercial ships and naval vessels, including submarines. This portable flowmeter has become a valuable measuring instrument for maintenance work on fuel, oil, water, cooling and heating pipes. In addition, the KATflow 200 plays an important role in the testing of fire extinguishing systems.
