PanaFlow LC Clamp-on Liquid Flow Meter (XMT1000)

  • Suitable for hazardous area environment Either an explosion proof or flameproof design for vital process environments
  • Suitable for most pipe sizes and materials
  • Newest Generation of Ultrasonic Clamp-on from Panametrics
Product Options


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.

Operation and performance
Fluid types Liquids: acoustically conductive fluids, including most clean liquids, and many liquids with small amounts of entrained solids or gas bubbles
Flow Measurement Patented Correlation Transit-Time™ model
Pipe Sizes 0.75 in to 300 in (20 mm to 7.5 m)
Pipe Wall Thickness Up to 4 in (100 mm); consult factory for other wall thicknesses
Pipe Material All metals and most plastics. Consult RS Hydro for concrete, composite materials, and highly corroded or lined pipes.

±1% of reading: >=2 in/50 mm, >1 ft/s (0.3 m/s)
±2% of reading: <2 in/50 mm, >1 ft/s (0.3 m/s)
±0.5% in field calibration possible

Installation assumes a fully developed, symmetrical flow profile (typically 10 diameters upstream and 5 diameters downstream of straight pipe run). Final installation accuracy is a function of multiple factors including pipe centricity, installation accuracy, and others.
