TFX-5000 Ultrasonic Clamp-on Flow Meter

In continuing investment in ultrasonic technology, Badger Meter is excited to introduce the Dynasonics TFX-5000 ultrasonic clamp-on flow and energy meters. The TFX-5000 meter is designed for non-invasive, ultrasonic transit time flow and energy measurement and is ideal for use in Heating/Ventilation/Air Conditioning (HVAC), water and wastewater treatment, and oil and gas applications.
By clamping onto the outside of the pope, clamp-on ultrasonic devices, such as the TFX-5000 meter, reduce installation time and cost. The TFX-5000 meter is available in two versions:
  • A flow meter for water delivery, sewage, cooling water, sea water, deionized water, water-glycol mixtures, alcohols, chemicals and many caustic fluids
  • A heating/cooling energy flow meter used in conjunction with dual clamp-on Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD’s) for temperature measurement in hydronic processes and HVAC systems.

TFX-5000 ultrasonic clamp-on meters are quickly and easily installed without cutting or tapping the pipe.  Ultrasonic waves transmit upstream and downstream through the pipe wall and water flowing in the pipes. By measuring the difference in the travel time and knowing the pipe size, the meter determines the velocity and flow rate.  A highly capable meter, TFX-5000 provides advanced features for flow or heating/cooling energy measurement without breaking your budget.
