The Baker Hughes Panametrics TransPort PT878GC clamp-on gas flow meter from HMA Instrumentation is a highly versatile, self-contained, portable transit-time system with options and accessories to meet a variety of gas flow measurement needs. Its compact size, lightweight, rechargeable battery pack, and universal power supply charger make it the ideal go anywhere flowmeter.
Historically, clamp-on flow metering was limited to liquids because existing methods could not work on metal pipes containing gases. Panametrics developed new technology that extends all the benefits of clamp-on flow metering to gas measurement. This remarkable ultrasonic technology works with gases at high or low pressure in pipes made of metal and most other materials.
The TransPort PT878GC flowmeter can be used to measure the flow of any gas. It is especially useful for metering erosive, corrosive, toxic, high-purity or sterile gases, or in any application where penetrating the pipe wall is undesirable.
Since no tapping or cutting of the pipe is required, permanent installation costs are significantly reduced. The meter has no wetted or moving parts, causes no pressure drop and has very wide rangeability.
