Typical applications with protective functions

  • Ensuring heat dissipation:
    - from exothermic reactions (chemical industry)
    - from heated boiler plants (power plants)
    - from heated plants, e.g. distillation columns, cokers, etc.
  • Dry-running protection of pumps in potentially explosive areas
  • Leak detection during transport of hazardous media
  • Monitoring of a minimum or maximum flow rate at critical supply and return lines
  • Ensuring heat dissipation from heated plants in refineries, e.g. distillation columns, cokers, etc.

The FLUXUS non-invasive ultrasonic flow meters have always been the first choice when it comes to maintaining accurate measurements in harsh conditions – e.g. during the flow measurement of aggressive, toxic or highly explosive media, at high temperatures or high pressure.
FLUXUS measures from the safe side: From outside.

The clamp-on ultrasonic transducers are simply mounted on the outside of the pipe. Without any risk of leak and during ongoing operation. The ultrasonic measuring method doesn’t need any wetted devices, does not pose any risk of clogging and is not subjected to mechanical stress which means it is practically wear-free.
As the wetted parts of inline measuring devices are not subject to the Failure Mode Effects and Diagnostics Analysis (FMEDA), they are not included in the scope of certification - presenting a safety risk. On the other hand, the SIL 2 certification of the FLUXUS non-invasive flow meter includes the entire measuring system -the measuring transmitters and transducers. It also includes the patented WaveInjector mounting fixture for extreme temperatures, allowing the non-invasive flow measurement at liquid temperatures from as low as -190 °C up to +650 °C. FLEXIM also offers special radiation-resistant transducers for use in the nuclear industry.

Safety without interruption.
The advantages of FLEXIMs non-invasive flow measurement technology pay off all the more over the entire lifecycle:
There is never any need to interfere with the pipeline system when carrying out periodic inspections. The self-diagnosis functions of the FLUXUS mean retests can be carried out easily to accurately assess the reliability and quality of the measurement. Even more detailed functional tests such as alarm tests or tests for monitoring compliance with measuring accuracy requirements never interfere with plant availability.
