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 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:
- Transit time
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
Avoid Costly Downtime and Lengthy Maintenance from Frozen Process Piping and Steam Tracing Lines

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.
