The PT900 is the latest generation of portable clamp on flow meters from GE Panametrics. It has been designed based on its predecessor, the PT878, following on from years of feedback from users of portable flow meters and how they are used. The user interface, clamping fixtures and transmitter have all undergone a complete redesign.
The PT900 uses wireless Bluetooth technology to communicate with the transmitter and tablet. The PT900 android app features a setup guide wizard to enable first time users to quickly setup the meter and get measurements within minutes.
The PT900 has improved accuracy over the PT878, achieving ±1% of reading (50 mm or greater pipe sizes) and ±2% of reading (15 – 50 mm pipes sizes). Compatible with a wide range of transducers to suit most pipe sizes and materials, both lined and unlined pipes.
