Ceramic sensors for flow metering
26 July 2015
Morgan Advanced Materials has extended its offering to the utilities sector with the addition of a new range of ultra-wide bandwidth, high-sensitivity, air-coupled ceramic sensors for flow metering.
The sensors offer an increase of magnitude in sensitivity compared with alternatives which are currently on the market, whilst maintaining and widening the bandwidth. The development is made using technology similar to that which underpins four-dimensional imaging.
These enhanced properties enable metering manufacturers to greatly increase flow measurement accuracy at low and high flow rates, while also reducing power consumption. This allows the products to meet the performance requirements of both European and North American regulatory bodies and to be produced in the high volumes required for the smart meter roll-out.
The new sensors are ideal for integration into acoustic anemometry systems and smart metering systems, as well as air-coupled level measurement of liquids and solids. There is also the option to customise the sensors for use in harsh and industrial environments, with the capability to measure at pressures of more than 100 bar in much larger pipelines.
