Clamp-on Ultrasonic Flow Meters for HVAC and District Energy: How They Measure Up

Clamp-on Ultrasonic Flow Meter
While other flow measurement technologies (e.g. magnetic or vortex flow meters) are also used in district energy applications, clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters are often an optimal solution since they are externally mounted.They are especially well-suited for use with existing hot or chilled water distribution lines. In existing applications they are quick, easy and less expensive to install than other flow meter options because there is no need to cut the line, interrupt service, or drain the pipe. They also do not require the installation of bypass piping and valves for removal; maintenance expense is minimized since they do not have moving parts; and, used outside the pipe, they do not require periodic cleaning.

Clamp-on ultrasonic meters are also very versatile: They can be installed on the full range of district energy line sizes (and more - from 0.5” up to 394”), employed anywhere in the
hot or chilled water distribution process and used to measure two applications simultaneously. They may be installed where an “intrusive” flow meter is not possible or appropriate – when only temporary measurements are needed, for example. All measurements can be logged and time-stamped for creating analyses and reports.
