Flow Measurement & Control


Non-invasive flow measurement

September 2009 Flow Measurement & Control

High performance ultrasound from Katatronic.

With a selection of flowmeter configurations, the clamp-on instruments from Katronic Technologies are finding success on a variety of applications in the oil and gas sectors.

The toxic, hazardous, high-pressure conditions found within the pipelines of the oil and gas sector make for some of the most testing measurement environments to be found anywhere. Added to this are atmospheric conditions that can feature massive fluctuations in temperature, high levels of sand and saline and high humidity.

Non-invasive flowmeters have flourished under these difficult circumstances, as the lack of need for pipe modifications have proved highly popular. Furthermore, as Katronic´s flowmeters are completely independent of process pressure, they are perfect for many of the very high-pressure applications.

Unlike some ultrasonic instruments, Katronic´s KATflow range is also able to work on duplex pipelines and very thick-walled steel conduits (schedule xxx). In the past, there have been suggestions that clamp-on flowmeters were not suitable for use in these situations. However, the company says it already has several references on duplex piping.

In addition to liquids, Katronic is also able to supply metering systems for high pressure gas flows.
