Published on

FLUXUS® measures flow non-intrusively using ultrasonic technology. The ultrasonic transducers are simply clamped on to the outside of the pipe and are never in contact with the liquid – pipe work is not necessary.
Clamp-on technology provides for maximum flexibility and the sophisticated electronics of FLUXUS® ensure the highest
possible accuracy and reliability. The measuring system, consisting of the transmitter, the transducers and the VARIOFIX mounting fixture, can be configured to meet individual requirements.
The FLUXUS® flowmeter series includes a variety of transmitters
and transducers: from basic models for standard applications up to robust measurement solutions for offshore use or for hazardous areas.

  3. 3. 3 From 6 mm tubing to 6.5 m penstocks FLEXIM’s non-intrusive ultrasonic technologysuitsanunmatchedrangeof applications. FLUXUS® offers accurate and reliable measurements from the smallest pipes (e.g. 6 mm tubing in paint finishing systems) up to very large pen-stocks (e.g. flow measure- ments in hydroelectric plants). For nearly every liquid and pipe material Measurement is possible on just about every liquid medium and pipe material, regardless of the conductivity. Steel, iron or plastic pipes; sludge, sand, acids or tar: FLUXUS® is up to the task! Up to 400°Candbeyond Standard transducers may be used for media temperatures up to 130 °C, the temperature range of the high temp. versions extends this up to 200 °C. The patented WaveInjector® system further extends the measurement ran- ge of FLEXIM’s standard transducers from cryogenic temperatures as low as -190 °C up to 400°Candbeyond. ... even in hazardous area locations Transducersandtransmittersareavail- able in ATEX, IECEx and FM certified versions. Flexible. ______
  4. 4. 4 The advantages of the non-intrusive measurement are obvious: since the ultrasonic transducers are simply attached to the outside of the pipe, the measuring equipment is not subject to wear and tear by the media and does not cause any pressure losses. Measurements at maximum operating pressures can be carried out easily with no additional costs. No pipe work is required when setting up the measuring point and, as a result, the operation is not interrupted. 100% plant availability pp Simple attachment of the VARIOFIX transducer system on the outside of the pipe pp Installation is possible during normal ongoing operation without process downtime 100% resistant to media pp No contact with media, therefore no chemical attack pp No need to use expensive special materials 100% wear-free pp No wear and tear by abrasive media pp Long-term stable, maintenance-free operation due to permanent coupling pads 100% leak-proof pp No additional risk of leakage by the measuring equipment 100% pressure-resistant  pp No pressure limit  pp Effortless measurement even at  maximum operating pressures  pp No extra charge for high pressure ranges  pp Zero point stability and measure- ment readings are not affected by static pressure changes  100% secure  pp No blockage of small bores or  impulse piping  pp Unaffected by pulsations, vibrations, speed peaks, swirling or cross flows  100% robust  pp Resistant to pressure surges, solids or bubbles in the medium Non-intrusive. ______

  6. 6. 6 “Plug & Play” calibrated transducers Each pair of transducers undergoes a rigorous calibration at the factory and is shipped with traceable calibration documentation. All calibration data (includ- ing the transducer identification and parameters) is stored in a transducer- resident non-volatile memory. It is automatically transferred to the transmitter upon connection. Consequently, programming errors are eliminated and there is never a need for zero adjustment or calibration. Guaranteed to be user friendly No elaborate instructions are required to use FLUXUS® ‘s intuitively structured menus. Pipe and material parameters are easily found in the internal liquid media and pipe materials database. Measurement is activated with just a few key strokes. Our explosionproof instruments can be operated without having to open the housing and without requiring any additional programming devices. A “Straight-Shot” from the pipe to the PC FluxData connects FLUXUS® to any PC. This software package with a graphical user interface takes care of the data exch- ange between the transmitter and the computer. With FluxData, you can readily transfer your measurement data from the flowmeter to a PC, analyze and visualize the measuring results and manage the data files directly or easily export them to an external data management program for analysis. User-Friendly. ______

Like a swimmer working his way across a flowing river, an ul- trasonic signal travels slower upstream than downstream. Our instruments work according to this transit-time prin- ciple: an ultrasonic pulse is sent downstream through the medium, another pulse is sent upstream. By measuring the transit time difference, the average flow velocity can be determined. The volume flow can then be calculated out of the flow velocity and the pipe’s dimensional parameters. The acoustic measuring method works without inertia and is independent of the flow direction. As a result, FLUXUS® measures the flow bidirectionally with excellent measurement rangeability.
  8. 8. 8 The Transducer System “Fit for the Purpose“ Construction All FLEXIM clamp-on transducers are watertight and suitable for use in harsh industrial environments. The robust stainless steel construction and the rugged integrated cables guarantee reliable measurement results over long periods of extensive use. Almost all transducer types are available in explosion-protected and IP68 submersible versions. Robust transducer mounting fixtures Be it for quick and easy mounting of a short-term measurement solution or for a permanent installation, for large pipes or for small tubes: FLEXIM offers transducer mounting fixtures for every application. The VARIOFIX mounting fixture pro- vides for a strong hold. Even in the event of strong temperature fluctuations, a continuous, stable contact pressure between the transducers and the pipe is ensured, allowing for the optimal irradiation of measuring signals into the medium. The VARIOFIX transducer mounting fix- ture exists in two versions: VARIOFIX L and VARIOFIX C. Both are constructed of stainless steel, being completely corrosion resistant and very durable. The transducer dis- tance can be set easily and precisely. Maintenance requirements are reduced considerably due to the permanent pipe wall contact with coupling pads. VARIOFIX L is the standard transducer mounting fixture and VARIOFIX C provides for optimum protection even in the harshest conditions: beneath the stainless steel cover, the measu- ring point is permanently protected against external influences, wind and weather as well as mechanical damage.

  10. 10. 10 Unmatched in performance, this flexible and easy to use flow meter is the ideal tool for the support of service and maintenance activities. It can also be used for the control or even for the temporary replacement of permanently installed meters. The wide pipe diameter range of each transducer type is one of its greatest assets: two pairs of transducers are sufficient to cover the most common pipe diame- ter ranges. In addition, its optional thermal energy measure- ment capability makes it possible to carry out a com- plete analysis of thermal energy usage in any fa- cility. The collected data can be used to perform a complete energy balance assessment or to assist dur- ing process monitoring and optimization tasks.
