SL3488 In Line Ultrasonic Flow Meter
SL3488 High Dynamic Response In line Ultrasonic Flow meter
SL3488 Low Velocity Flow Meters
The model SL3488 in line ultrasonic flow meter (here in after referred to as SL3488) is a true state-of-the-art transit-time flow meter designed using PICOFLY technology and 0.01 nanosecond (10 pico seconds) resolution; the flow sample rate achieved is 256 discrete flow measurements per second, which provides a true high dynamic response flow meter.
SL3488 Ultrasonic FLow Meters is very well suited to use for measuring the flow in the pipe flow rate is very slow. SL3488 ultrasonic flow meter so it is very appropriate if installed on a process where the waste water flow in the pipes do not use the pump pressure it is based on the difference in height or because gravity is often called a gravity flow meter
This makes this meter for rapid on/off or pulsating flow applications. SL3488 is designed using the latest digital technology. This meter features high reliability, low maintenance and no moving parts. Unique digital signal processing and correlation programming from the MPU provide instantaneous meter measurement (no damping needed) SL3488 ultrasonic flow meters has been tested under rigorous field working conditions and has shown steadfast performance, which offers the customer confident worry-free measurement.
Compared with other flow meters and other ultrasonic flow meters, the SL3488 is characterized by high accuracy, high credibility, superior performance, very rapid response to flow changes, and low cost.

Measurement Site Selection
SL3488 in line ultrasonic flow meter is easy and convenient to install. When the measured pipe size is consistent with the spool piece size, you can select a proper measurement site and install the meter which is ready to use. When selecting a measurement site, it is important to select an area where the fluid flow profile is fully developed to guarantee a highly accurate measurement. Use the following guidelines to select a proper measurement installation site :
Choose a sect ion of pipe, which is always full of liquid, such as a vertical pipe with flow in the upward direction or a full horizontal pipe.
Generally, it requires at least 10 D (pipe diameters) upstream & 5D (pipe diameters) downstream. If there is a pump, a tee section, control valve, orifice, expansion joint or other element which could cause flow disturbances, the upstream straight pipe required will be greater than 10D
Ensure that the pipe surf ace temperature at the measuring point is within the transducer temperature limits.
Spool Piece Transducer Installation Methods
Install the Ultrasonic Transducer flow meter on horizontal and vertical pipes
Note : Make sure the pipe is full of liquid
Install the Ultrasonic Transducer f low meter after elbows, valves and pumps
Note : Ensure the pipe on both sides of the flow meter is straight.
Install the Ultrasonic Transducer flow meter in a pipe that discharges to atmosphere
Note : Transducers should not be installed on a pipe that discharges to atmosphere unless it is far enough upstream to be sure the pipe is full at the point of installation
For a partially filled pipe section, ensure the pipe section being measured is full of liquid
Note : The ultrasonic flow meter should be installed in a pipeline that is full of fluid. If the pipe is not full or there is only one free horizontal pipe (discharge), connect the transducer in the lower part of the pipe.
Avoid installing the ultrasonic flow meter at the upper part of a pipe sect ion like the above
Note: Air pockets or air locks can collect in this type of pipe sections
