Clamp-on flowmeters for the avionics industry

Flowmeters from Katronic have been used for the development of new innovations in the aerospace sector for a number of years. Clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeters have often proved to be the best and most accurate solution to dealing with the special properties of the liquids involved and difficult-to-reach measurement points. Several major European companies have relied on our instruments for the testing of aircraft hydraulic systems where the liquids are viscous and corrosive and therefore difficult to measure with conventional meters. 

Katronic flowmeters offer a series of advantages to our customers for measuring fuel oil and other fluids onboard aircraft and elsewhere in the aerospace sector.

There is no requirement to cut into the pipe when fitting a Katronic clamp-on flowmeter. This means that there is no risk of contamination with hazardous chemicals and no risk of leakage.

In situations where changes in process condition can take place extremely rapidly, clamp-on flowmeters can give a more stable and accurate impression of the overall flow condition than other kinds of meter.

With a response time of one second or less, our clamp-on flowmeters give the customer almost instant readings, an important benefit when trying to accurately monitor pulsating flow rates or transient flow events.
