September 23, Fuji Electric Ultrasonic Flowmeters
September 23, Introduction Ultrasonic waves travel in the same manner as light or microwaves, however being elastic waves, they can propagate through any substance whether solid, liquid & gases. And by utilizing the properties of ultrasonic waves clamp on flowmeters with unique feature of being able to measure fluid flow in the pipe externally was developed. In 1975, Fuji Electric introduced its first ultrasonic flowmeter and since then Fuji Electric USFMs have been very successfully in many applications both domestically and internationally.

September 23, Why use ultrasonic flowmeter? Benefits of A NON-INTRUSIVE sensor (CLAMP-ON type) Cost saving Easy maintenance (No moving parts) No pressure loss No plugging/clogging No corrosion No leakage IT IS AN IDEAL SOLUTION TO PROBLEMS OF ORDINARY INTRUSIVE/SPOOL PIECE TYPE OF FLOWMETERS. Differential Pressure, Magnetic Flow, Turbine, Coriolis & Etc.
