Ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeter OPTISONIC 6300 F – Version with field-mounted converter

The OPTISONIC 6300 is an ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeter for permanent mount installation. It is particularly suitable for flow measurement of (non-)conductive liquids at any location where inline measurement is not possible or desirable. The flowmeter consists of a combination of one or two clamp-on sensors and one ultrasonic signal converter. Its robust clamp-on rail is highly flexible and can be very easily attached to virtually any pipe up to DN4000 / 160".

Typical applications of the clamp-on flowmeter include flow measurement of a broad range of refined hydrocarbons, demineralised water or chemicals as well as measurements in hygienic applications. A clamp-on version for extended temperature ranges up to +200°C / +392°F is also available. The OPTISONIC 6300 has approvals for use in hazardous areas and offers HART® communication capability.
