The GE Panametrics TransPort PT900 ultrasonic flow meter maintains the same high performance as the PT878, but features a total redesign of the flow transmitter, clamping fixture and user interface in order to improve the user experience.
The TransPort is portable, simple to use, accurate, and fast. It's easy for you to move it from location to location and task to task, and since it clamps on to the pipe exterior, there's no need to cut into the pipe or stop the process while taking measurements. It is suitable for most pipe sizes and materials, both lined and unlined, and virtually every industry that requires temporary or spot flow rate measurement.
The TransPort's rugged transducers can handle most liquids, from ultra-pure to unfiltered water and refined hydrocarbons to crude oil; it can serve a wide range of applications:
- Oil & Gas
- Water & Wastewater
- Power Generation
- Food & Beverage
Please consider these optional accessories.
This product can be used in the following applications:
Here's how some of our customers used this product.
Balancing and Troubleshooting Cooling Water Systems
The Background: The customer is a manufacturer who needs a clamp-on transit time ultrasonic flow meter to help their maintenance department troubleshoot and balance the cooling water systems throughout their plant.
The Problem: The customer sought a unit for which set-up and use was intuitive, making it simple for inexperienced technicians to use correctly, while quickly yielding accurate data.
The Solution: In discussions with the customer, is became clear they were impressed with the several elements of the GE Panametrics PT900 including the newest HMI technologies, the compatibility with heritage transducers, and the tablet interface which makes it easy to view and email data thus increasing the overall efficiency of the maintenance staff.
Specifically, Instrumart quoted and sold the customer a PT9-SYS-1C-A-0-SC. The base Kit "A" allows for easy measurement from 2-24" pipes which easily covered the cooling water applications and allows for possible new applications in the future.
Highlighting Pump Performance
The Background: A pump service/repair shop serving the Oil and Gas Industry is looking for a unit to highlight the system performance recovered by their service work to their customers.
The Problem: The customer requires a highly portable solution with fast and easy set-up and operation. As their customers are primarily in the oil and gas field, compatibility with hydrocarbons is a must.
The Solution: The PT900 was quoted due to its high level of performance on hydrocarbon applications, and the Tablet interface which allows a clean interface for their sales representative to showcase the improvement. The customer purchased model PT9-SYS-1C-1-A-0-SC as they were looking to meter within the 2-24" range.
Testing a Pipeline for Expected Performance
The Background: Our customer is a military testing facility that is in the midst of building a 20 mile long pipeline and are currently assessing expected performance of that pipeline by logging flow rates over a few days with varying loads under varying conditions.
The Problem: As this is testing, there is no desire to tap into the pipeline so the meter must be a clamp-on type. The length of the pipeline means it will be far removed from a power source. The remoteness will also require a rugged and reliable device.
The Solution: The GE Panametrics PT900 ultrasonic flow meter is portable, simple to use, accurate, and fast. It's easy to move from location to location and task to task, and since it clamps on to the pipe exterior, there's no need to cut into the pipe or stop the process while taking measurements. The PT900 also has a long battery life and interfaces easily with tablets.
Verifying Pump Flow
The Background: Our customer is a company in the energy field seeking a flow meter to verify the flow in a 1/2" flush line to their pump, which contains liquid hydrocarbons.
The Problem: The customer wants a clamp-on solution with simple data management.
The Solution: The GE Panametric PT900 ultrasonic flow meter was chosen for the ease of set up as well as the Android Tablet interface which makes handling data easy. This set-up allows the customer to survey the pumps within their plant efficiently and accurately.
