Product Options


The Sentinel ultrasonic flow meter from Panametrics is specifically designed to measure the flow rate of natural gas.

The Sentinel meets the high accuracy standards of AGA9 for natural gas custody and the NMI pattern approval.

The T11 transducers for use with the sentinel are specifically designed for natural gas applications.

A complete Sentinel system is made up of the ultrasonic meter, the flow conditioner and upstream? and downstream piping. This system design eliminates the uncertainty associated with installation effects (distorted flow profile caused by valves, elbows and other piping system components) on the overall meter performance. This system provides a cost effective, simplified monitoring solution without causing any additional risk to measurement uncertainty.

The Sentinel flow meter provides convenient installation as the meters electronics are pre programmed with all the system setup information. The meter is ready to use as soon as the meter body has been installed and the meter communications and power are wired. The user does not have to do any additional setup or configuration of the meter.

The Sentinel system is compatible with Panaview software and allows communication between the meter and PC. The software allows live flow readings and diagnostics. The software also provides a comprehensive check on meter configuration with a full audit trail.

No problem. The quick start guide is designed to make installing the flow meters a simple task. Everything you require for set up will be found in the peli-box supplied with the flowmeter.
Every flow meter is tested upon shipping and return as part of our ISO9001 procedure. Also, as part of this procedure, the flow meter is calibrated once a year. If a copy of the calibration certificate is needed let us know.
The flow meters typically provide an accuracy of ±1 to 2% of rate, so if you are measuring 100l/sec then the accuracy is between 98-102l/sec.
We are here to help. If the self-help and quick start guides do not help, then call one of our technical support engineers on +44 (0) 1527 882060. We have supplied and supported many clamp on rental installations throughout Europe.
If the stock is permitting, and all paperwork is received by 12pm then flow meters can usually be available the next day.
Without exception, all our flow meters are tested. If you need a 110v plug instead of the standard 230v plug let us know.
All of our standard transducers will do -40degC to +150degC, but this will depend on your application.
  • Liquid: below 50mm CFLP transducers are required, 50-1000mm CRS-402 transducers and 150-8000mm CRS-401 transducers. All the bits you need can be supplied, and delivered with the meter.
  • Gas: below 80mm CRS-402 is required, for 80-300mm the CRS-401/CRV-310 and for above 300mm the CRW-312 transducers are required.
  • High temperatures: For liquid we can measure +450degC for liquid and for gas/steam +250degC. But please consult RS Hydro.
As long as the pipe is relatively clean, coatings or paint is usually not a problem for clamp on flow meters but if the pipe is corroded or the paintwork has bubbled then a quick sanding down with sandpaper or a wire brush is recommended.
An ultrasonic wall thickness gauge, that measures to within 0.05mm, is provided as standard with all flow meter rental packages.
The screendump facility on the integrated dataloggers on all our flow meters, allows you to photograph any screen and download it to your pc.
We have hired more ultrasonic clamp on flow meters than any other company in Europe. We are now one of the world's largest distributors of GE Panametrics flow meters. We always review your application before hire so no unwanted surprises are encountered. Every effort has been made to make your flow meter hire and enjoyable experience: quick start guides to help you set up with ease, online videos for further help, rugged packaging for extra durability anywhere, and real flow engineers available for online/telephone support.
