Datasheet Brochure

The GE Panametrics PT868 Portable Liquid Flowmeter has everything needed to successfully perform clamp-on flow measurements in the field. Included in its microprocessor-based electronics are an ultrasonic thickness gage function (transducer optional) which accurately determines pipe wall thickness for proper setup of the transducers, and a waveform display function for troubleshooting.
 

Self-contained, built-in rechargeable batteries for up to ten hours of portable operation are standard, as are digital and analog outputs for data uploading and chart recording (a portable printer is optionally available). To calculate energy flow rates, the TransPort flowmeter comes with inputs for optional RTD temperature sensors.

Specifications:

Flow Accuracy:
Pipe diameter (ID) > 6 in. (150 mm): Velocity > 1 ft/s (> 0.3 m/s), 2% of reading typical;
0.5 to 1% of reading with calibration.
Velocity ≤ 1 ft/s (≤ 0.3 m/s), ± 0.03 ft/s (± 0.01 m/s).
Pipe diameter (ID) ≤ 6 in. (150 mm): Velocity > 1 ft/s (> 0.3 m/s), 2 to 5% of reading typical.
Velocity ≤ 1 ft/s (≤ 0.3 m/s), ± 0.15 ft/s (± 0.05 m/s).
Pipe diameter (ID) 2 in. (50 mm) and larger: Velocity > 1 ft/s (> 0.3 m/s),± 5% of reading typical; ± 2% of reading with calibration.
Rangeability:
Transit-Time Mode: 400:1
TransFlection Mode: 30 to 1
Range:
Transit-Time Mode: –40 to 40 ft/s (–12.2 to 12.2 m/s ).
TransFlection Mode: –1 to –30 ft/s (–0.3 to –9.1 m/s).

Fluid Types:
Transit-Time Mode:

Acoustically conductive fluids, including most clean liquids and many with entrained solids or gas bubbles. Maximum void fraction depends on transducer, interrogation carrier frequency, path length and pipe configuration.

TransFlection Mode:

Multiphase fluids, including raw sewage, sludge, slurries, tar sands, oil-water-gas mixtures, acoustically attenuating liquids and other demanding applications.

Power Supply:
Input 100/120/200/260 VAC ± 10%, 50/60 Hz, 5 W maximum.
Output 12 VDC unregulated.
Note: The PT868 may also be powered or charged by any regulated DC source that provides spike-free voltage of 10 to 28 VDC.
Environmental:
Operation Temperature 14° to 122°F (–10° to 50°C).
Storage Temperature: 14° to 122°F (–10° to 50°C).
