Panametric Transport® PT900 Portable Ultrasonic Liquid Flow Meter Description

The Panametric Transport® PT900 Portable Ultrasonic Liquid Flow Meter has been optimised to be as easy-to-use as possible, whilst still retaining the precision, ruggedness and versatility of Panametric's previous model, the PT878 (available here).

This product's clamp-on design means that it can be quickly attached to pipes; whilst the included transmitter’s Bluetooth compatibility ensures that it can be easily synchronised with tablets that have the PT900 app installed. This app can be used to program the PT900 Portable Ultrasonic Liquid Flow Meter; its streamlined, icon interface, tutorial-style programming and extensive online support ensure that users of all experiences are able to program and operate both the app and the Panametric Transport® PT900 Portable Ultrasonic Liquid Flow Meter easily.

Further to this, the PT900 app's simplicity of operation means it is quick and easy to program the PT900 Flow Meter; as a result, the flow meter can perform measurements almost directly out of the box.

This multilingual app is can be downloaded from Google Play (instruction video) and the included SD card (instruction video). It can be used to set parameters, program data logs and is able to display a multitude of options. 

Further to its clamp-on design, the Panametric Transport® PT900 Portable Ultrasonic Liquid Flow Meter’s compatibility with a number of transducers means that it can be used to measure flow through a variety of different sized, lined or unlined pipes.

The Panametric Transport® PT900 Portable Ultrasonic Liquid Flow Meter’s use of transducers and patented Transit-Time ™ technology (please see below for a brief description) also means that it is suitable for measuring the flow of a variety of liquids, including:

  • Potable water
  • Wastewater
  • Cooling and heating water
  • Ultrapure water
  • Water/glycol solutions
  • Crude oil
  • Refined hydrocarbons
  • Chemicals
  • Beverages
  • Non-conductive fluids
  • Gases
  • Steam
  • Fluids with small amounts of entrained solids or gas bubbles

In addition to measuring flow, the Panametric Transport® PT900 Portable Ultrasonic Liquid Flow Meter can take readings for:

  • Velocity
  • Volume
  • Mass
  • Totalizer
  • Energy flow rate

Measurements can be stored in the transmitter’s 8GB data logging memory. The PT900’s transmitter is both accurate and fast-responding and is able to indicate its health via red and green lights, adding the PT900 Ultrasonic Liquid Flow Meter’s practicality.

The PT900’s accuracy, practicality, extensive compatibility and measurement features, as well as its ease-of-use, make it ideal for taking temporary or spot flow measurements across a variety of industries.

Patented Correlation Transit-Time™ Technique Brief Explanation

Transit-TIme™ technology eliminates the need to infiltrate the pipe under investigation and/or shut down the process.  It provides the user with excellent accuracy whilst removing the possibility of drift or pressure drops.

This mode of measurement requires two transducers. First, each transducer emits a series of acoustic signals; second, each transducer receives the signals emitted by its partner. The time interval between the first transducer emitting the acoustic signals and the second transducer receiving them is measured. This is repeated in the opposite direction.  

If the fluid is stagnant then the two time intervals will be identical as there is no upstream resistance. However; if flow is present then the upstream time interval will be greater than the downstream time interval as the acoustic signals will have encountered resistance from the downward flowing fluid. The subsequent difference between the time intervals/ transit times is proportional to the flow velocity; moreover, the differential value’s sign indicates whether the current is flowing upstream or downstream.
