Solution for water leaks detection
The battery-powered FLOMIC FL5034 and FL5054 ultrasonic flow meters are intended for operational and invoicing measurements of instantaneous flow rate, pressure and consumption in water piping in observance of standard EN 14154 in waterworks, water distribution systems and other industrial applications. The features of the FLOMIC flow meters make them suitable for water leak detection and tracking and monitoring of the general condition of water-supply networks.
Ultrasonic flow meter FL 50X4 design
These flow meters are of a compact design with the IP 68 protection class. They are characterized by high measurement accuracy and long-term stability over a wide range of measured values. The meters do not need any external power supply, do not include any moving parts and, have significantly lower hydraulic losses.
The measurement method utilized by these meters is a single-beam (FL5034) or dual-beam (FL5054) transit-time pulse method based on evaluation of the time needed for an ultrasonic signal to cross the distance between two measuring transductors. In the standard version, the meter measures instantaneous flow rate (in m3/hour) and the total volume of water passed through the meter (in m3) in the given flow direction.
The measured data are converted into passive pulse output signals. The meter output signals can be connected via data transfer systems to remote computer control stations. Flowmeter electronics also includes data storage with various possibility to connect (GSM module, RS232, optical data probe).
This feature can be useful for distance measuring points without electricity. Flow meters FLOMIC FL 50X4 can effectively save customers’ costs everywhere, where it needs to measure water and is not possible or is expensive to connect to an energy power grid.
