Cheaper flow measurements

A cheaper alternative to Coriolis flowmeters has been introduced by Bürkert for applications where fluid density measurement is not required. 

The Flowave uses surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology to deliver precise flow measurements from a smooth, uninterrupted flow-through pipe section – meeting all the requirements of a hygienic application.

The demand for more advanced, non-contact measurement technology has seen the rise in ultrasonic, electro-magnetic and Coriolis technology, and each of these has its place.

However, these devices have limitations, including handling media with non-conducting liquids or that containing bubbles or debris.

Bürkert’s SAW technology is claimed to create an extremely compact device that has the same hygienic properties and cleanability as the rest of the process pipework.

Flowave is said to offer a way to measure the flow of a liquid and its temperature without installing a large, expensive, and energy-consuming piece of equipment.
