Ultrasonic Meter Sets Accuracy Benchmark

Honeywell Process Solutions’ Q.Sonicmax ultrasonic gas flow meter boasts the highest available level of accuracy in custody transfer processes. Its unique, patented design features the first eight-path ultrasonic meter to combine both reflective and direct paths. This enables Q.Sonicmax to effectively detect and correct for disturbances in the gas flow caused by short inlets, extenders, reducers, manifolds, elbows and a range of other piping elements common in natural gas plants. It also provides for extensive diagnostics to ensure accurate readings.

 

It meets the accuracy class 0.5 requirements of the International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML) R 137-1&2 2012 without any exclusions. The OIML, an international, intergovernmental standards-setting body, promotes global harmonization of legal metrology. In their international recommendation they define three accuracy classes for gas meters.
