Pulsar Process Measurement has launched a compact pipe flow monitor backed by a promise of exceptional repeatability, accuracy and simple installation with no down time.
The company describes its new Flow Pulse as “a leap forward” in flow measurement and in ease of installation. There’s no need to break into a pipe or to get engineers involved; a small sensor is clamped to the outside of a pipe and immediately gives a repeatable flow measurement.
A Pulsar spokesman said: “Flow Pulse uses a novel spread spectrum analysis technique never before used in flow monitoring. It introduces a radical new digital signal processing approach for exceptional repeatability.”
The mass of data generated is analysed using Flow Pulse’s refracted spread spectrum analysis (RSSA) digital signal processing platform to derive flow information. RSSA analyses and integrates the received signals over a wide frequency range, then slices them for real-time analysis and flow rate calculation.
