Bronkhorst ES-FLOW Flow Meter/Controller Achieves 3-A Sanitary Standards

Swanson Flo Sanitary Flow Meter

Bronkhorst presents their new generation of ES-FLOW Ultrasonic Flow Meters for low flow rates of water, additives, and other liquid substances. The improved flow meters measure volume flow from 2 up to 1500 ml/min with even higher precision, high linearity, and low-pressure drop, using ultrasound in a small-bore tube. The instruments are liquid-independent, thanks to the unique measuring principle, which accounts for the flow calculation's actual sound velocity. Thanks to the combination of a straight sensor tube with zero dead volume, the flow meter is self-draining. The flowmeter with orbital TIG-welded flanges is CIP or SIP cleanable and now meets 3-A sanitary standards for hygienic applications. More information at the Swanson Flo website here.

Badger Dynasonics Ultrasonic Flow Meters

Dynasonics Ultrasonic Flow Meter

Badger Meter ultrasonic flow meters measure flow rate by propagating ultrasound waves into liquid-filled pipes and measuring the reflections. There are two technologies to choose from based on the fluid properties: 

  1. Transit time
  2. Doppler

With clamp-on technology, the Badger Meter ultrasonic meters reside outside the pipe and bring you flow measurement with:

  • Reduced installation costs
  • Uninterrupted production
  • Installation flexibility across a wide range of pipe sizes
  • No pressure head loss
  • No contact with internal liquid
  • No moving parts to maintain
The TFX ultrasonic clamp-on flow meter is quickly and easily installed without cutting or tapping the pipe.  Ultrasonic waves transmit upstream and downstream through the pipe wall and water flowing in the pipes. By measuring the difference in the travel time and knowing the pipe size, the meter determines the velocity and flow rate.  TFX flow meters are a cost effective meter for measuring water flow in a variety of applications.

Now is the Time to Pay Attention to Your Plant's Steam System!

 Avoid Costly Downtime and Lengthy Maintenance from Frozen Process Piping and Steam Tracing Lines

TLV Steam Trap Winterization

Winterization is necessary for refineries, petrochemical plants, and other industrial plants to protect equipment and piping from content solidification or coagulation. Winterization is usually accomplished in manufacturing plants using steam tracing, steam jacketing, or electric heating methods. Now is the time to inspect your plant's steam system and  make sure you're ready for winter!

Contact Swanson Flo with all of your freeze protection and steam system needs.

Move Over Ultrasonics, Radar Level Transmitters are Better Choice for Dry Bulk Solids

Ultrasonic level transmitters used in dry bulk solids level monitoring are starting to be eclipsed. Radar technology is now so good that it can get a signal and level or distance off of very unreflective media such as polypropylene pellets. Compared to ultrasonics, radar is often more reliable, easier to use, and has lower maintenance requirements. Check out this video from Swanson Flo highlighting the Schneider Electric LR64 and LR65 radar level transmitters.
