Flow Measurement & Control


Optisonic 3400 approved for heated water applications

February 2017 Flow Measurement & Control

Krohne’s Optisonic 3400 ultrasonic flowmeter is now available with heat meter approval according to MID 2014/32/EU Annex VI MI-004 (and harmonised CEN EN1434, OIML R75) in accuracy classes 1, 2 and 3. Target applications include district heating networks, commercial and industrial heat metering applications as well as energy and utility applications in combined heat and electricity generation.

The meter provides high accuracy measurement of heated water with three ultrasonic paths throughout the diameter range DN25-2000. To ensure stated accuracy classes, each heat meter undergoes a three-point factory calibration performed with water.

With its direct path configuration, Optisonic 3400 is not susceptible to (magnetite) scaling like meters that use reflectors. It offers bidirectional flow measurement and a fully welded construction without potential leak points and also features enhanced diagnostic and status indications (according to NAMUR NE 107) and measurement of the velocity of sound to gain additional information about medium and process.
