Flow Technology Introduces QCT Series In-Line Ultrasonic Meters For Low Viscosity Liquid Applications
Flow meters deliver excellent accuracy and reliability at an economical price point
TEMPE, Ariz., February 26, 2020 – Flow Technology, Inc. (FTI), a leading manufacturer of precision flow measurement instruments, systems and calibrators, has introduced the QCT Series of in-line ultrasonic flow meters for use in low viscosity liquid applications.
The QCT Series is a compact, versatile, cost-effect solution for measuring low viscosity liquids in a wide range of industries, such as chemical, biopharmaceutical, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, plastics, power generation, pulp & paper, semiconductor, and steel. The meter’s construction makes it the meter of choice for many high purity and corrosive fluids. Typical applications include water treatment for boilers and cooling towers, clean-in-place (CIP) systems, mechanical seal flushing/cooling, high purity water systems, process water, cooling loops, reverse osmosis (RO) systems, and small line injection systems.
“The QCT Series is intended for those seeking a flow meter with excellent accuracy and reliability at an economical price point,” said Matt Zajac, Flow Technology marketing manager. “The meter is available in a range of sizes and features to meet a broad array of application requirements. The QCT’s ability to measure the flow of any clean, low viscosity liquid makes it an excellent fit for numerous applications and industries.”
High accuracy and repeatability are achieved through the unique measurement section within the QCT Series meter where flow is conditioned and Delta T measured along the meter’s axis. The meter bases its operation on measuring the time difference of an ultrasonic wave traveling with and against the flowing medium. The time difference is directionally proportional to the fluid’s flow rate.
The QCT has no moving parts, non-wetted sensors, and there is nothing in the flow stream that will cause an obstruction to the flow path. The meter is available in sizes of 1/8 inch to 1 inch, accurate to +/- 0.5 percent of reading plus zero stability and repeatability is +/- 0.2 percent over 10:1 calibration range. It has a 0.035 to 70 GPM flow range, 14°F to 176°F (-10°C to 80°C) temperature range, and analog, scaled frequency and Modbus RTU outputs.
