The KATflow 100 is a compact clamp-on ultrasonic flow transmitter with a robust and practical design for permanent installation and flow measurement on single pipes. The instrument offers a cost-effective option owing to its simplified specification and availability of a range of transducer types. The varied functionality and simple operation of the KATflow 100 make it the perfect product for large projects and customer specific solutions.
The KATflow 100 electronics are housed in a robust wall or pipe mounted aluminium enclosure and can be powered by AC or DC power supplies. In spite of its relative simplicity the KATflow 100 offers the user a wide range of input, output and communication interfaces such as RS 485, Modbus and the more traditional 4-20mA and open-collector pulse. As a special solution the KATflow 100 can be offered without local display with a hand-held programming device.
The KATflow 150 is the premier product for flexibility and performance, providing the user with a comprehensive specification and a list of configuration options. The practical modular design and the wide variety of different transducer types available ensure this instrument is suitable for everything from simple water flow measurements to energy flow monitoring and automated process control.
The KATflow 150 is an advanced ultrasonic flowmeter for permanent installation. The dual-channel design allows the user to either save cost and time by performing two independent measurements simultaneously or to install two pairs of transducers on a single pipe for locations where there are non-ideal flow conditions. Where this is used the sum, difference, average and maximumcalculations are available in order to provide further processing of the data.
The KATflow 170 provides a corrosion-resistant option as part of a fully ex-certified package. The flowmeter is intended for permanent operation in Zone 1 and 2 hazardous areas and is an economical choice for a variety of metering applications. The KATflow 170 demonstrates that even the most complex technical requirements can be met with straightforward solutions.
The KATflow 170 flowmeter is designed around a choice of explosion-proof housings available in either offshore industry compliant epoxy-coated copper-free aluminium, or stainless steel. The instrument is extremely easy to use and is programmed with a magnetic pen and a glass-fronted keypad for increased safety. The robustness and reliability of the KATflow 170 is further enhanced by its encapsulated IP 68 transducers which are manufactured from stainless steel and have a sturdy cable conduit.

MEASUREMENTS FROM AMMONIA TO XENON
The new KATflow 180 represents the culmination of many years of development in the field of ultrasonic technology. It has been designed to provide a reliable measurement on varying applications from high pressure flow systems to locations where in the past clamp-on devices would not have been considered suitable. Unlike other instruments the new meter can be installed on metallic gas pipes where the pressure is far lower than the recognised five bar minimum, with measurement possible down to atmospheric conditions. This is achieved through a combination of powerful sophisticated electronics, adaptive filtering techniques and innovative signal processing algorithms using Digital Signal Processors (DSPʼs).
With the innovations introduced by Katronic in the KATflow 180 it is possible to measure flow of a variety of different gaseous media from 0.1 to 75 m/s. The advanced transducer assembly economically offers both shear and Lamb wave measurements with a minimum number of sensors, for greater simplicity. The unit is available for permanent use in both safe and hazardous environments with rugged housings for Zones 1 and 2. The KATflow 180 is easily programmed with a magnetic pen for increased safety and can measure on all commonly used pipe materials.
