Micronics Ltd began trading in 1985. They were set up to design and market clamp on ultrasonic flow meters for industry and commerce.
Since its inception Micronics have sold clamp-on water meters in more than 50 countries. Concentrating mainly on portable “Time of Flight” meters, some of which are marketed under the registered trade name of Portaflow™. Our clamp-on flow meters for many purposes continue to grow in popularity.
In addition to product supply, Micronics offer a wide range of flow measurement solutions. Combining the Micronics product range with Flow Analysis software and expert staff to conduct flow surveys. Starting with the introduction of the first portable instrument, the company now markets a range of different products including “Time of Flight” and “Doppler” technology.
The range includes portable instruments and fixed meters based on the use of non invasive ultrasonic sound transmission. This detects liquid flow velocity within closed pipes or open channels. There are Energy options for clamp-on fixed meters, tank and level meters are also available.
Types of Flow Meter
The two types of Flow Meter, Transit Time (Time of Flight) and Doppler and they are both available in a clamp-on meter style with transducers. These are used to detect and then measure flow rates from the outside of the pipework, without any interruption to flow or process. Ultrasonic clamp on flow meters readings are altered by acoustic properties of fluids and impacted by density, viscosity, temperature and suspended particulates. These are all dependent on the type of flow meter.
Applications of an Ultrasonic Flow Meter
Ultrasonic Flow Meter applications include measuring liquid flow in full pipes as well as the measurement of liquids such as water, wastewater, acids and solvents, chemicals, hydrocarbons and oils. These can also be used to monitor and control heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. They are perfect for applications where flow disruption is simply not an option.
Micronics product range
The Micronics product range is also available on a competitive hire basis to provide emergency cover for failed meters. They provide customers with the tools to undertake their own short term flow survey work.
