Beverly, Mass. –KROHNE, Inc. will showcase the latest version of its OPTISONIC 6300 clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeter at the upcoming Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) 2022 in New Orleans.
The event, to be held Oct. 10-12 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center, will also allow KROHNE to showcase its other water and wastewater products, including the TIDALFLUX 2300, KROHNE’s unique flow meter for partially filled pipes; WATERFLUX 3070 water counter with flexible power concept; and a new generation of liquid and solids level measurement products featuring better measurement performance, enhanced software and an improved and more powerful signal processor and the OPTISONIC 7300 ultrasonic meter for biogas applications.
KROHNE representatives will be available at booth 5829 to discuss technology, products and applications in detail.
The newest iteration of the KROHNE OPTISONIC 6300, the ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeter for permanent mount installation, will be featured. It is particularly suitable for flow measurement of liquids at any location where inline measurement is not possible or desirable. The flowmeter features new robust stainless steel clamp-on rails which can be easily attached to virtually any pipe up to 160 inches in diameter with metal straps or with newly available magnetic mounts. All versions come with a wall-mounted or field mounted ultrasonic signal converter.
The TIDALFLUX 2300, KROHNE’s unique flow meter for partially filled pipes, will also be highlighted. The meter can measure flows in pipes between 10 and 100 per cent full, and its non-contact sensor is not affected by oils and fats floating on the surface. In addition, TIDALFLUX has a broad diameter range to fit pipes from eight to 64 inches and has high chemical and abrasion resistance to provide exceptional durability.
The WATERFLUX meter features precise measurement with no need for upstream or downstream piping, has no moving parts, and is maintenance-free. This electromagnetic unit can be powered by a standalone battery or with solar power or even line power. It is an ideal choice for drinking water applications and where power is unavailable. WATERFLUX is also available with UI1203 or Modbus based network communications as well as optional built-in pressure, and temperature measurement within the flow sensor body. The addition of pressure and temperature is useful for leak detection or district network pressure monitoring.
The OPTISONIC 7300 biogas version is ideal for methane gas applications in wastewater treatment facilities. The two-beam ultrasonic flowmeter provides ideal long-term measurement stability and repeatability. Now Class 1, Div. 1 approved, it delivers high performance over a wide bi-directional flow range of ± 30 m/s (± 90 ft./s) with 1 per cent accuracy. The converter features a variety of measurement diagnostics and available methane content output.
Visitors to the booth can also get a look at the newest radar and guided wave radar (TDR) level measurement devices on the market. Radars such as the OPTIWAVE 7500 (80 GHz) for liquids in narrow vessels with internal obstructions and the OPTIWAVE 6400 (24 GHz) for granulates or rocks and the OPTIWAVE 6500 (80 GHz) for powders and dusty atmospheres will be on display along with OPTIFLEX TDR level devices.
