Q.Sonic

Q.Sonic

The Elster-Instromet multi-path Q.Sonic ultrasonic gas flow meter is ideal for the calibration measurement of natural gas. The patented measuring path arrangement, in conjunction with advanced ultrasonic sensors and digital signal processing allows high accuracy with excellent long time stability.

The flow profile analysis of the meter allows renouncing the usual adoption of a flow conditioner.

Software and additional installation instructions are available in the central download area.

The specified flow ranges apply to the respective nominal size for a wall thicknesses according Schedule 40. Depending on the metrological approval (eg PTB), the required pressure range and the resulting inside diameter of the meter the flow ranges may differ from the tabular value.

Larger diameters until 64" respectively 1600 mm are possible.
