Flexible clamp on ultrasonic flow meters are a convenient and portable testing option that operate on the time of flight methodology – measuring the time for a sound-wave to travel between a transmitter and receiver.
The clamp is attached tightly onto the pipe, using ultrasonic couplant gel to ensure there aren’t any air gaps between the clamp and the pipe and enhance sound transmission from the transducer.
These units are also available for hire and can provide a temporary flow measurement solution.
At SIRIS, we use clamp on meters primarily for the verification of electromagnetic flow meters , however it can also provide a convenient alternative to applications where the cost or installation of an electromagnetic meter is prohibitive.
With no pressure drop or energy loss, a wide turn-down ratio and no need to cut the pipe or stop the flow, installation is easy and maintenance can be minimal. Ultrasonic flow meters are durable, long-lasting and, when installed and calibrated correctly, they provide a reliable and accurate solution.
A SIRIS clamp on ultrasonic flow meter carry MCERTS accreditation so you can be confident that the data provided is reliable and accurate and will provide accurate and reliable long-term flow measurement.
Our flow meters are designed to meet with relevant regulatory discharge and MCERTS requirements.
All SIRIS products are compatible with our web-based data recording software, which allows quick and easy access to your data at any time – from any location.
We pride ourselves in offering a bespoke service to all of our clients. Our design and installation process ensures we provide you with a cost-effective solution tailored to suit your site’s individual requirements.
When you first contact SIRIS, our friendly team will be on hand to take your enquiry and assess your needs. We know that every site has different requirements, so we’ll work closely with you to understand your individual needs.
At this stage our wastewater management experts will provide a tailored quote for your system. For most sites we can do this using photographs, however for larger or more complicated sites we will arrange to visit you and assess it in person. If MCERTS is required we will ensure we develop a system that is fully compliant
Our team will assemble your bespoke system at our dedicated facility. We’ll also pre-calibrate any equipment that can be commissioned off-site.
We will arrange for your equipment to be delivered directly to site and liaise with your chosen contractor to advise on installation requirements. Depending on the project, we may also attend site to assist with the installation process.
Our specialist engineers will attend site to commission your equipment and check it’s working correctly. We’ll also go through your new system with you and answer any questions you have. Once we’ve completed the calibration we will be able to issue you with a CalCert which allows you to prove your site is fully compliant to auditors.
Our team is always on hand to support with any queries or teething problems you may be experiencing. For most sites we also recommend a bi-annual servicing package to ensure your equipment continues to function correctly.
All SIRIS products can be used with our data monitoring software, Palette, however they are also compatible with your existing SCADA system. Our expert team is committed to working in partnership with our customers to meet their individual requirements and ensure our products fit seamlessly into each site.
“If the cost of an electromagnetic flow meteris prohibitive, a clamp on ultrasonic flow meter can be a cost-effective alternative when correctly installed and calibrated by an expert. However, they can be compromised by environmental conditions such as temperature, so it may be necessary to use a sun shade to ensure it works accurately. We also offer this type of flow meter for hire as a convenient temporary flow measurement solution.”
We offer a range of services across wastewater sampling, flow measurement and analysing equipment.
Data is the crucial output of all flow systems. We provide an agile, cloud-based solution for accessing and downloading your data.
Including both open-channel and closed-pipe solutions, our MCERTS compliant flow meters come in a range of sizes and specs.
Including PH, temperature and turbidity monitors, our analysing equipment has a range of monitoring solutions for your requirements.
For short-term solutions and projects, we supply flow meters for your requirements.
