Clamp-on flowmeters for sterile medical manufacturing

In an industry where a sterile environment is paramount, Katronic flowmeters have been proven to be a safe and dependable solution for hygienic flow measurements. Traditional invasive products create areas where microbiological growth can occur within the pipeline, whereas the KATflow instruments maintain the system’s integrity and sterility. Many of the liquids used in pharmaceutical production are also non-conductive, making them unsuitable for alternative measurement technology.

Katronic flowmeters offer a series of advantages to our customers in the pharmaceutical sector.

Katronic clamp-on flowmeters are installed on the outside of the pipe, ensuring that there is no compromise to the integrity and sterility of the pipeline.

A clamp-on ultrasonic device is the perfect measuring tool for the demineralised liquids used in pharmaceutical processes, which are non-conductive and therefore unsuitable for measurement with an electromagnetic flowmeter.

Our flow sensors are manufactured with stainless steel heads, have a high IP rating and are designed for clean room installation. They can be employed on pipes of acoustically conductive material including various plastics, stainless steel and flexible tubes.
