Tommy the Travelling TTFM Proves His Success at Bore Hole Site

Tommy outshines an existing mag flow meter yet again!

Published on Thursday, August 20, 2020

Tommy the TTFM Tommy the Travelling TTFM was out and about again last week – this time he was in the hands of our Product and Technical Support Manager Rhys Griffiths.

Rhys took Tommy to a bore hole site that also does treatment, and in addition also takes water from two other nearby bore holes. This site had been having electrical issues and the contractors were under pressure to get this site finished. They had a sneaky feeling that the existing mag flow meters were giving suspect readings and wanted to try something else to get up and running.

Tommy to the rescue!

Tommy saw this application as no trouble at all, as you can see once Rhys had mounted the sensors on the outside of the pipe – not interrupting flow or site operations, Tommy was able to give a strong reliable reading. This application is a clean water application, which is where Tommy’s Transit Time technology really stands out, measuring the time it TTFM sensors on pipetakes for an ultrasonic signal transmitted from one transducer to cross the pipe and be received by the second transducer – hence why the application must NOT contain a significant concentration of bubbles or solids.

Overall, Tommy had ANOTHER successful day out with Rhys and the customer has asked for a quote to be sent over.

If you think you’ve got an application that could give Tommy and his friends a run for their money, contact the office or your respective account manager to arrange a day trial!
