THE Polysonics SX40 is a dedicated doppler flowmeter that uses a patented digital signal processing technique to determine the flow of liquids that contain particulate or air bubbles.
Available from Procon Instrument Technology Pty Ltd , the meter incorporates clamp-on sensors, which are easily installed for sludge management in sewage treatment plants and industrial applications such as slurry and effulent monitoring.
The Hydra SX40 is designed as a permanently installed flowmeter and is also available from Procon. Its large backlit graphics display provides excellent visibility even in poorly lit environments.
As well as flow rate and flow total, a flow trend is available to quickly analyse flow over a period of time. This is especially useful for analysing pump cycling activity.
Standard outputs include 4-20mA, RS232 serial interface and up to four programmable relays.
The flowmeter also incorporates a 90,000-point data logger.
