Portable Flow Meters
Defining performance with today’s technology
The portables line from Panametrics, a Baker Hughes business, offers both ultrasonic liquid and gas clamp-on flow meters: The TransPort PT878GC for gas; and the TransPort PT900 for liquid. These ultrasonic flow meters utilize ultrasound to measure the velocity of a given fluid or gas - also known as "flow" - and are used in a wide variety of fluid and gas applications, from wastewater and various fuels to natural gas and compressed air.
These meters attach to pipe fixtures to measure the flow within the pipe. Quick installation and meter readings enable our users to continue their process without having to shut down. The meter’s portability allows the device to move to numerous measurement locations, making it easy to spot-check the flow, verify the flow meter, or temporarily install the device.
Of the two available types of ultrasonic flow meters, we offer one for liquid measurement and one for gas measurement:
- The TransPort PT900 uses a rugged and intuitive smart device/tablet and includes a new compact clamp-on fixture along with wireless capabilities. Its easy-to-use design gives operators confidence that their liquid measurements are accurate.
- The TransPort PT878GC is a clamp-on flow meter designed for short-term flow surveys in natural gas pipelines, compressed air, inert gas, or any other compressed gas application. With the ability to measure gas flow rates and then log and export important data, this useful meter measures erosive, corrosive, toxic, high-purity, and sterile gasses.
