Mar. 29, 2018 – Endress+Hauser has introduced the Proline Prosonic Flow E 100 ultrasonic flowmeter for measurement of flow, temperature and volume of process water.

Suitable for use in industrial, process, power utility and boiler feedwater systems, the unit can measure flow in both directions as well as water temperature, says the company. It can also measure flow in water containing magnetite, often found in closed hot water systems for nuclear reactors, wet central heating systems and boilers. The all-stainless-steel Prosonic Flow E 100 works in process pressures up to 363 psi, and in temperatures from 32 to 302 degrees F. It is available in line sizes from 2 to 6 inch for measuring flows up to 1680 gal/min with accuracy of ±0.5% fs. Accuracy is based on accredited calibration rigs, according to ISO 17025.

Process outputs sent via 4-20mA with HART include volume flow, mass flow, flow velocity,  temperature and three totalized values. The HART signal also includes diagnostic outputs such as acceptance rate, sound velocity, signal strength, signal to noise ratio, turbulence and signal asymmetry. It also has a Pulse/frequency/switch output.

The Prosonic Flow E 100 also has a Web server interface. By using a standard Ethernet cable and a laptop, users have direct access to all diagnostic, configuration and device data on-site without the need for additional software or hardware.
