AW-Lake Company has launched a Water Inline (WIN) Ultrasonic Flow Meter for highly accurate and reliable flow measurement of cooling water, condensing water, and water/glycol solutions. Designed for process cooling applications including industrial cooling circuits, the WIN Ultrasonic Flow Meter has no moving parts for long-term reliability and low maintenance costs. By incorporating two wetted ultrasonic transducers that face each other directly in the flow tube, the ultrasonic flow meter reduces wear associated with moving parts and maximises signal strength.
The new flowmeter offers very high accuracy (+1.0% of reading over 25:1 turndown, 100:1 total turndown) over a wide flow range with minimal pressure drop. An innovative flow tube design simplifies installation in limited straight runs and ensures no obstruction in the flow path. Holding an IP67 (NEMA 6) rating, the new product operates safely when temporarily submerged in water.
An LCD display version comes standard with Modbus RTU communications, providing an output of flow rate, volume total, run hours, alarms, and diagnostics. The display is detachable for remote mount installation up to five feet from the sensor. A built-in data logger enables easy data access vis Modbus. Units without a display come standard with analog and pulse outputs, 24V AC/DC power, one pulse, and one analog output.
