The PanaFlow LC is the newest generation of Ultrasonic Clamp on Flow Meter, which is based on it's predecessor the XMT868, but features many advantages. The PanaFlow LC has a wide range of transducers available which make it suitable for many applications, even in hazardous environments. The PanaFlow LC is Hazardous area certified with either an explosion proof or flame proof design.
Other advantages of the PanaFlow LC include: improved accuracy and repeatability, HART and Foundation Fieldbus digital protocols, Wider flow range for handle more diverse flow measurements.
The Flow Meter is suitable for most pipe sizes and materials, both lined and unlined.
Manufactured by: GE Panametrics
Model: PanaFlow LC Clamp-on Liquid Flow Meter (XMT1000)
-Suitable for hazardous area environment with either an explosion proof or flameproof design for vital process environments.
