Overview

Better Accuracy, Precision, Reliability and Repeatability

The FLUXUS G706 gas flow meter combines highest precision digital signal processing with the well-known advantages of non-intrusive ultrasonic technology: ease of installation, retrofittable design, high accuracy, and outstanding performance. With 4 ultrasonic beams, installed in reflect mode, 8 independent ultrasonic paths travel through the liquid medium thus improving flow averaging of up to 4 planes of the pipe section. With this configuration the G706 gas flow meter averages out crossflow profile effects and achieves optimum non-intrusive flow compensation for undesirable installation locations where lack of upstream straight runs, proximity to bends, elbows or other adjacent instrumentation creates flow disturbances.

On applications with longer straight runs, the 4-ultrasonic beam arrangement used with the G706 clamp on flow meter achieves outstanding accuracy, performance and repeatability making it the preferred solution for redundancy measurement (check metering) of custody transfer meters and leak detection applications where high accuracies are needed.

Temperature compensated transducers, superior noise suppression and a highly rugged design offer an unrivalled degree of reliability, durability, and accuracy - ensuring perfect operation of the system under the harshest field conditions. The G706 gas flow meter is even suitable for underground installations (IP68 / NEMA 6P rated).

As close to Custody Transfer Accuracy you can get from outside the pipe!

The F706 ultrasonic flow meter is capable of accuracy in the Custody Transfer class. By measurement principle, non-invasive ultrasonic flow meters exhibit some uncertainty related to pipe wall thickness and pipe geometry. However, these uncertainties are minimized with careful installation, precise pipe wall measurement and the inherent sensing capability of multiple 4-channel flow measurement. While inherited “out of box” custody transfer accuracy is not possible with clamp on metering, in many pipeline applications like check-metering, leak detection and others, it is possible to calibrate the F706 meter in-situ to achieve custody class accuracy (proven by industry independent Calibration Facilities - test reports are available upon request).

Accuracy is a topic we take seriously! We firmly believe that our clients expect us to over-perform rather than disappoint. Ask us, if you want to learn more about the total measurement uncertainty for your specific application.
