Measurement of fluid flow in closed conduits - Ultrasonic transit-time meters for liquid
|Publication Date:||1 July 2012|
|ICS Code (Flow in closed conduits):||17.120.10|
This International Standard specifies requirements and recommendations for ultrasonic liquid flowmeters, which utilize the transit time of ultrasonic signals to measure the flow of single-phase homogenous liquids in closed conduits.
There are no limits on the minimum or maximum sizes of the meter.
This International Standard specifies performance, calibration and output characteristics of ultrasonic meters (USMs) for liquid flow measurement and deals with installation conditions. It covers installation with and without a dedicated proving (calibration) system. It covers both in-line and clamp-on transducers (used in configurations in which the beam is non-refracted and in those in which it is refracted). Included are both meters incorporating meter bodies and meters with field-mounted transducers.
