Clamp-on flowmeters for industrial applications

Efficient manufacturing is essential for the sustainable success of all businesses. Increased global competition, environmental regulations and the rising cost of raw materials and energy have made improving productivity even more important. Easy to use and giving almost instant readings, clamp-on flowmeters can increase efficiency by helping to determine areas for future plant optimisation and develop more efficient and technically advanced production processes.

Katronic flowmeters offer a series of advantages to our customers in the manufacturing and process sector.

The flowmeter sensors are mounted onto the surface of the pipe, so there is no pressure drop, no risk of leakage and no disturbance of the flow at any time. This ensures an unrestricted flow and stable flow rates.

With a response time of one second or less, our clamp-on flowmeters give the customer almost instant readings, an invaluable feature for accurately monitoring pulsating flow rates or injection applications.

The KATflow clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeters can be retrofitted to pipes of various materials and with diameters from 10 mm to over 3,000 mm (0.4” to > 118”). This is easy to do, and doesn’t require costly changes in the specification of the instrument.
