The MetraFlow ultrasonic flowmeter from Titan Enterprises precisely measures chemical disinfection dosing using sodium hypochlorite. Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCI) has properties that challenge component parts used in most flowmeters. It is a highly corrosive liquid commonly used as an oxidizing and bleaching agent, and as a disinfectant. Suitable for applications that pose fluid compatibility challenges, it comes as standard with an LCD display and three customer configurable digital input/output options and an analogue output.
“Its design is based upon a chemically resistant Perfluoralkoxy Alkane (PFA) tube onto which are mounted high sensitivity ultrasonic sensors” Neil Hannay, senior development engineer at Titan Enterprises
While using the patented ultrasonic technology, the MetraFlow reliably operates with great accuracy across flow ranges from 20 to 5000 ml/min. It has an excellent turndown of 50:1, +/- 0.1% for repeatability, and a linearity and reading accuracy of better than +/- 0.5% full scale. Through flexible interface software, the MetraFlow flowmeter can be configured as required via a USB port, giving great flexibility to optimize the device for integration within a wider chemical production operating plant.
