Endress+Hauser’s Prosonic Flow W 400 expands opportunities for clamp-on flowmeters.
Endress+Hauser has released its Proline Prosonic Flow W 400 flowmeter, which can be used for volume measurement, totalizing, balancing, process monitoring, flowmeter verification and pipeline leak detection. Mounted directly onto a metal or plastic pipe, the clamp-on sensor can be applied to pipelines up to four meters in diameter. Made of stainless steel, the ultrasonic sensor is rated IP68 (Type 6P) and can be used at process temperatures between –40 and +130 °C in non-hazardous areas. Its transmitter includes a web server via which users can direct access to diagnostic, configuration and device data. It also features the company’s Flow DC function which detects flow disturbances on the measurement signal so they can be compensated for by calculation.
