Flow Pulse®

Non-invasive clamp-on flow sensor for pipes

Flow Pulse flow sensor

Flow Pulse® is a unique, non-invasive flow sensor that clamps to the outside of a pipe and is simply secured with a screwdriver.

Flow Pulse offers you exceptional repeatability at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent magflow meter. It can reliably monitor flow across a variety of pipe materials including rigid plastic, stainless steel, cast iron and even corrugated pipes.

The Technology Within Flow Pulse

Flow Pulse fires ultrasound through the pipe wall at 90 degrees to the flow via a tangentially mounted high-output ceramic. Ultrasound is refracted at angles across the axis of the flow and is then reflected from bubbles, particles and vortices in all directions and at a wide range of frequencies.

The returned signal is analysed using Flow Pulse's Refracted Spread Spectrum Analysis (RSSA) digital signal processing platform to derive flow information. RSSA analyses and integrates the received signals over a wide frequency range, then slices them for real-time analysis and flow rate calculation.

Flow Pulse Options

Flow Pulse is available in two versions depending upon the application's pipe size.

  • 30 to 350mm pipe diameter
  • 30mm to 1250mm pipe diameter

Flow Pulse can either operate as a stand-alone device or can be used with one of Pulsar's controllers.
