CLAMP-ON FLOWMETERS FOR OIL AND GAS EXTRACTION.
Pipes carrying oil or liquefied gas are under high pressure. Retrofitting a flow meter to them can therefore be rather challenging. This is made even more difficult by the toxic and hazardous conditions found inside the pipe. The extreme atmospheric conditions (risk of explosion) on offshore platforms or in desserts impose the highest (Ex) demands on the measuring instruments used in this industry.
Ultrasonic flowmeters offer a solution for temporary measurements and permanent installations in potentially explosive environments according to the requirements of the oil and gas industry. The transmitter housing as well as the clamp-on sensors are ATEX certified (zones 1 and 2).
