Ultrasonic Flow Meter for Applications Requiring a High Degree of Cleanliness

Sep 12 2013

Constructed from Victrex PEEK polymer - the low cost, high accuracy Atrato ultrasonic flow meter from Titan Enterprises (UK) sets a new standard for flow monitoring applications requiring a high degree of cleanliness.

Accurate and cost effective flow measurement is increasingly important to industries requiring a high degree of cleanliness including pharmaceuticals, industrial engineering and food and beverages. The Atrato flow meter leverages Titan's patented ultrasonic flow meter technology enabling the direct-through meter to handle flows from laminar to turbulent. The device deploys the 'time of flight' measurement system where a signal is passed along the pipe with the flow and back up the pipe against the flow, the difference in these signals produces the flow rate.

In developing the ATRATO, Titan Enterprises selected a high performance polymer that would enable the thread forms which attach the flow meter to the flow pipes to be moulded. This was not possible to achieve using traditional metal thread forms. The polymer also needed to be chemically resistant and have the capability to operate at high temperature up to 110ºC (230ºF). Due to its intended use in beverage dispensing applications the material needed to be FDA compliant. Additionally, low moisture absorption was a prerequisite for medical and pharmaceutical applications.

The Atrato's unique clean bore construction makes it ideal for these applications. The smooth finish achieved in the bore of the Victrex PEEK polymer-based components aids the flow of liquids. In addition, the polymer's high resistance to cleaning fluids and solvents enhances the cleaning process.
