The Panametrics PT878 ultrasonic flow meter is a clamp-on portable flow meter which can be used to measure most liquids including clean liquids and also some liquids with solids or gas bubbles. The PT878 is suitable for use on all metals and most plastics, on a pipe range from 12.7mm to 7.6m (0.5 inch to 300 inch) without the need to cut into the pipe.
The PT878 clamp-on flow meter is ideal for rental purposes as it is easily installed, up and running in minutes and can be quickly relocated to other pipes.
The PT878 is ideal for many types of survey including:
