Ultrasonic liquid flowmeter for high temperature (HT) and high pressure (HP)

OPTISONIC 4400 HT + OPTISONIC 4400 HP with UFC 400

As the successor of the UFM 530 HT/HP, with many proven installations in the field, the OPTISONIC 4400 solves flow measurement challenges by applying ultrasonic differential transit time.

The ultrasonic measurement principle provides accurate and repeatable measurement with excellent Long term stability and without the need for maintenance.

In particular at higher temperatures, fluid conditions may not be optimal. Fouling, gas bubbles, density variations and other inhomogeneities can occur.
