Micronics portable flowmeter used to determine flow distribution from pumps
An internationally recognised leader in the development of marine aquaculture science and technology uses a Micronics Portaflow 330 portable flowmeter to determine the flows from pumps on the Islands of Shetland and in many other sites in Scotland for the instantaneous measurement of the flow of seawater. FAI Aquaculture’s aim is to help the food sector overcome key challenges and implement better farming practices, on land and at sea and the Micronics unit aids this objective.
Steven Butler, FAI ’s Engineering Project Manager is enthusiastic about their PF 330 which they purchased in the Spring of 2018. “It is a huge benefit that the Micronics flow meter is portable, rugged & versatile, enabling us to use it wherever required across our varying sites, basically anywhere we need to measure flow rates, no matter the environmental conditions. Another significant benefit is that the ultrasonic, clamp on flow meter unit is non-invasive meaning pipe work does not need to be altered to determine flow rate so there is no interruption to process and no downtime during installation.”
The Portaflow range offers the user quick and accurate flow measurement. It is simplicity itself to set up with its easy to follow menu. Results can be achieved very rapidly, vital to any user. Compact, rugged and reliable, the Portaflow range has been designed to provide sustained performance in a wide range of industrial environments.
