Ultrasonic Flowmeters – Standard in the process industry

Benchmark for custody transfer

Whether liquid or gaseous, aggressive or corrosive: KROHNE ultrasonic flowmeters measure a wide range of media.

In 1997, KROHNE introduced the ALTOSONIC V, the first high precision, calibratable ultrasonic flowmeter for the petroleum industry. The ALTOSONIC V’s five measuring paths can perform extremely precise and reproducible measurements regardless of the viscosity of the medium – a real quantum leap.

As the world’s leader in the field of ultrasonic inline flowmeters, our devices are at home in a wide range of industries. Whether it’s measuring cooling water and demineralized water in power plants, controlling dosing and mixing processes in the chemical industry or measuring liquid hydrocarbons in the oil and gas industry, you can put your absolute trust in KROHNE ultrasonic flowmeters in any situation.
