Ultrasonic Flow Meter

SmartMeasurement offers the widest selection of ultrasonic flow meters in the industry. Our comprehensive array of non-invasive clamp-on flowmeters includes devices employing both the time-proven transit time and the doppler ultrasonic flow measurement technologies with either clamp-on or threaded/flanged installation options available. We also offer low-cost spool-piece water meters and BTU/energy ultrasonic meters.

Magnetic Flow Meter

SmartMeasurement offers a complete line of magnetic flow meters to address any flow measurement application where an electromagnetic flowmeter may be the preferred technology. For general purpose applications, the value-priced ALMAG-WP is the meter of choice. This meter is offered with wafer type and ANSI & DIN flanged process connections and features an easy-to-read OLED display module that provides a variety of industry standard outputs including frequency/pulse, analog 4-20 mA, RS-485/Modbus, Profibus, and HART. A wide variety of material selections are available for the ALMAGWP’s liner and electrodes, ensuring that it can be fabricated to be compatible with virtually any conductive fluid.

Coriolis Flow Meter

Smartmeasurement’s ALCM Coriolis series are offered with the highest accuracies available in industry. Accuracy grades of 0.1, 0.15, 0.2 and 0.5% of reading are available. The ability to maintain these levels of mass flow accuracy regardless of media temperature, density or viscosity and then install the meter in areas with extremely tight space constraints and no available straight pipe runs makes the Coriolis meter a potential life saver for many applications where a traditional-technology flowmeters will not work.

Positive Displacement Flow Meter

Positive displacement flowmeters, or PD meters, feature two precisely machined intermeshing gears which rotate within a measuring chamber to determine the volumetric liquid flow rate by counting the number of the gears’ rotations. Positive displacement flow meters function in much the same manner as a positive displacement pump with the exception being that in the Positive Displacement pump the gears drive the fluid media, whereas in the PD flowmeter the fluid media drives the gears.

Vortex Flow Meter

Vortex flow sensing technology relies on measuring the number of vortex pulses generated by a bluff body immersed in the flow stream. The SMC Vortex meter uses dual sensor technology, producing two independent vortex signals which allow for signal amplification and common mode noise reduction.

Our sensors never touch the process fluid; the crystal sensors are bonded behind a stainless steel wall. The electronics pick up the slightest pressure pulsations generated by the vortices through the stainless steel wall. This design allows meters to have an extremely wide turndown while maintaining an almost unlimited upper end and a high pressure rating.

Thermal Flow Meters

SmartmeasurementTM, s ATMF series of thermal mass flowmeters can be used with pipe diameters ranging from 8mm (¼”) to up to several meters using our multi-sensor configurations.  Process connections can be flanged, threaded, or hot-tapped ball valve.  SmartmeasurementTM’ s ATMF Series Thermal Mass Flowmeters feature available integral style or remote mount electronics, an easy-to-read OLED display, and a unique calibration self-check technique that allows for field verification of the factory calibration.

Turbine Flow Meters

SMC’s low-cost ALTM turbine flow meters are used for the precise measurement of instantaneous flow rates of low-viscosity fluids such as tap and demineralized water, fuels, liquefied gases, light fuel oils, solvents, and pharmaceutical fluids.

ALTM turbine flow meters (hereinafter referred to as turbines) are used for the precise measurement of instantaneous flow rates of low- viscosity fluids as tap and demineralized water, fuels, liquefied gases, light fuel oils, solvents, and pharmaceutical fluids.
