Ultrasonic Flow Meters

Katronic’s KATflow 230 is a portable flowmeter which utilises ultrasonic technology to measure the flow rate of liquids within pipes without entering the pipe. The KATflow 230 is an advanced specification portable flowmeter capable of two measurement channels so that either two pipes can be monitored simultaneously or it can used to improve accuracy in non-ideal conditions.

KATflow 230 flowmeters are suitable for pipe diameters ranging from 10mm up to 6,500mm and have a robust IP65 aluminium enclosure and has a selectable three-line LCD display and full keypad.

Stainless steel sensors, cables and connectors are supplied as standard for temperature ranges from -30ºC to +250ºC and a large data logger and software are also supplied for sampling and data transfer.
