Ultrasonic Gas Flowmeters

July 11, 2012

With the new ALTOSONIC V12, KROHNE has launched the next generation of ultrasonic gas flowmeters for custody transfer applications. KROHNE’s ALTOSONIC V12 is the ideal solution for increasingly accurate flowmeters in a world of increasing energy prices. The ALTOSONIC V12 gas flowmeter has 12 measuring chords, two of which are solely dedicated to diagnostic functions. Once commissioned, it continuously checks the operating status. The positioning of the chords in five horizontal parallel planes compensates for swirl and thus, provides reliable measurements, even with highly distorted flow profiles. The diagnostics in the ALTOSONIC V12 can reliably assess deposits, contamination or changes in wall roughness, so that maintenance can be scheduled according to actual needs. The ALTOSONIC V12 gas flowmeter is available in sizes 4 to 24 inches, an installation length of 3D and a maximum operating pressure of 2200 psi. It is compatible with commonly used protocols and can be seamlessly integrated into any existing infrastructure.
