The GE Panametrics Transport PT878 Ultrasonic Flow Meter uses transit-time ultrasonic technology to measure liquid flow from the outside of the pipe. This non-invasive setup means there is no need to stop your process or drill, cut, or disconnect pipe. The PT878 is portable (comes in its own carrying case) and can be set up in minutes. The clamp-on transducers can measure the flow rates of a wide variety of homogeneous, "clean" fluids right through the pipe wall. Because the Panametrics PT878 doesn't have any moving parts and is not exposed to the fluid being measured, it requires virtually no maintenance. With careful setup, the PT878 can achieve better than 1% accuracy.
