In many industries, process control relies on knowing how much fluid flows through the pipelines in order to optimize efficiency and maximize profit. Flow meters measure the flow rate, or quantity, of liquids, gases and steam using a variety of technologies.
Among these technologies, ultrasonics remains one of the fastest growing in the oil & gas industry because of its accuracy, reliability and diagnostic capabilities. With no moving parts to wear out and no obstruction to the flow, ultrasonic flow meters provide an overall cost of ownership lower than that of mechanical flow meters and older flow meter technologies.
The Vortex flow meter is an equally cost-effective alternative, offering a variety of applications with multi-parameter measurement capability for liquids, gases and steam.
A Baker Hughes business since 2002, Panametrics first entered the ultrasonic flow market more than 50 years ago by introducing its state-of-the-art gas flow meter. Today’s Panametrics brand has continued to excel in the industry and is well-known for its high-technology inline and clamp-on flow meters that enable engineers and technicians to operate in the toughest environments and handle the most challenging applications.
Panametrics Ultrasonic Clamp-On Flow Meters
Ultrasonic clamp-on flow meters measure fluid flow in main applications. Easy to install without process shutdown, these meters are accurate and versatile for a variety of industries, fluids and pipe thicknesses. Panametrics, a Baker Hughes business, offers a comprehensive clamp-on portfolio consisting of AquaTrans, DigitalFlow, and PanaFlow models.
Panametrics Ultrasonic In-Line Flow Meters
Process flow meters are integral to processes that contain liquids, gases or steam. Without the ability to monitor fluid flow, operators are often unable to control the throughput. Ultrasonic flow meters enable our customers to accurately measure the volume and velocity of various process liquids, whether polluted or ultra-pure.
Panametrics Vortex Flow Meters
Widely chosen by customers for its reliability and accuracy, the vortex flow meter also serves as a standard for steam applications due to its ease of installation and low maintenance costs. Where other meter technologies struggle in difficult high-pressure and high-temperature environments, the vortex flow meter offers a wide range and a low pressure drop, making it a top choice for flow professionals.
Vortex meters from Panametrics, a Baker Hughes business, include both inline and insertion modes, providing ease of installation for demanding applications, including:
- Hot-tap steam
- Large lines
- Areas of low pressure
