Advancement Brought to Portable Ultrasonic Flow Meter for Better Functioning

Coltraco Ltd has established its name upon affordability and quality. Keeping the charm of its name, it has now introduced of Portasonic® which is a portable ultrasonic portable ultrasonic flow meter. This device comes with being non-invasive flow rate meter whereas standby battery of 12 hours. It performs with the accuracy in between ±1.0% -2.0% of reading at rates >0.5 m/s ±0.003 m/s of reading at rates.

Portasonic® consists of a handheld portable clamp-on transit time flow meter device for accurate flow measurement from outside a pipe – especially for fire protection water sprinkler and fire hydrant systems. The unique clamp-on fixture design makes the installation very straightforward and requires no special tools or skills and due to the non-invasive nature of clamp-on transducers, there is no pressure drop, no moving parts, no leak and no risk of contamination or corrosion. This ultrasonic flow meter Ideal for the measurement of flows in clean, non-aerated fluids such as water, water/ glycol and oils in full pipes from ½” to 180” (12 to 4570 mm) diameter can be measured and the ultrasonic signal penetrates all common metal and plastic pipe materials.

  • Works on almost any liquid
  • Lifetime Support
  • Calibration and training certificates available
  • Ultrasonic Technology

Operating Method of Portable Ultrasonic Flow Meter

Transit Time flow meters utilize two transducers that function as both ultrasonic transmitters and receivers. The transducers are clamped on the outside of a vertical or horizontal pipe at a specific distance calculated by the instrument. The elapsed time of this ultrasonic flow meter between transmitted and received signals varies very slightly depending on whether the signal is traveling upstream or downstream and by comparing these time differences an accurate calculation of the flow rate is possible and is displayed in your choice of engineering units. As the ultrasonic beam crosses the pipe, compensation for laminar or turbulent flow is automatic.

Depending on the application and flow profile, the transducers can be mounted in V-method in which case the ultra sound transverses the pipe twice, the W-method in which case the ultra sound transverses the pipe four times or the Z-method in which case the transducers are mounted on opposite sides of the pipe and the ultra sound transverses the pipe only once. These modes are automatically selected by the instrument and are also user selectable. (X denotes the distance between the transducers. The instrument at setup depending on the inputted application data automatically calculates this).

CEO Message

Integrity and Science Key to Our Culture of Performance

Dear Coltraco Customers, Strategic Partners and Distributors,

Integrity is our defining value. Performance is its consequence. We understand that our customers have choices, and how we perform determines whether customers choose us.

We honour our commitments, communicate transparently, and act with honour. Ethics are the foundation of our performance culture and our science-based approach. We lead in specific technologies delivering the watertight integrity monitoring of marine structures and the monitoring of fixed liquefied gaseous fire extinguishing systems and the room integrity of protected space to ensure agent hold-times post-installation. We show this by our understanding of the science in them and the mathematics that explain them.

I would like to thank you for your business and for the relationships with our Customers, Strategic Partners, Distributors and ODAs who we value so highly.

My kindest regards,
Carl
