Xsens flow meters can be used for pipeline flowrate and leak detection measurement, replacing the most common inline technologies by clamp on measurement. These are:
Having such a wide array of technology choices can be overwhelming for clients when making decisions on which technology suits their application best.
The Xsens technology for flow measurement is based on ultrasonic signals to measure the time of flight. We transmit the signal from outside of the pipe wall and steer the signal through the medium close to the inside of the pipe wall and through the center of the pipe. This patented technology allows Xsens to measure the full velocity profile of a medium, which means our measurement takes place across the full diameter of a pipe (full bore measurement). This provides the Xsens flow meters with high accuracy of 1-2% over the full range. The benefit of ultrasonic technology is that we can measure flow with a very high turn-down ratio of 1:400, which means we can measure from 0,1 to 40 m/s.
Our meters are clamped to the outside of a pipe. This provides easy installation (typically 2-3 hrs) and reliability as the meter is not in contact with the medium. Therefore, there is no risk for erosion, corrosion, waxing or scaling and minimal maintenance required.
