Transit time: Portable Ultrasonic flowmeter

Dynasonics TFXP Portable Transit Time Flow Meters feature the world’s most advanced non-invasive flow measurement technology providing a measuring system with unsurpassed accuracy, versatility, ease of installation and dependability. Although designed primarily for cleaner liquids, the flow meter can reliably measure liquids containing moderate amounts of suspended solids or aeration.

TFXP is designed for long- or short-term flow measurement surveys on full-pipe liquid systems and is ideal for verifying calibration of permanently mounted flow meters of all types. The flow meter features a tactile keypad, 24-hour battery (rechargeable), removable 200,000-event data logger (optional) and a 128 x 64 pixel, backlit graphics display all integrated into a rugged, watertight enclosure.

TFXP systems utilize Dynasonics proprietary dual time-base time expansion algorithm, advanced DSP and digital cross-correlation. TFXP also provides an optical interface that allows operation of the Windows® ULTRALINK software utility. The software utility allows simple in-field programming, calibration and software upgrades. The cost-effective and versatile TFXP flow meter comes complete with all accessories necessary for measuring piping systems 2" [50 mm] and higher
