(Image source: Honeywell)Honeywell Process Solutions has launched a new gas flow meter Q.Sonic, featuring the first eight-path ultrasonic meter that combines both reflective and direct paths, aiming to meet the individual operational demand

The new ultrasonic meter is aimed to detect ad correct disturbances in the gas flow caused by short inlets, extenders, reducers, manifolds, elbows and a range of other common piping elements in the gas plants.

Honeywell said that the Q.Sonic gas flow meter also provides diagnostics in order to ensure reading accuracy in custody transfer process.

The multi-path ultrasonic meter is designed to meet the accuracy class 0.5 requirements by the international organisation of legal metrology (OIML), which promotes global harmonisation of legal metrology, and recommended three accuracy classes for gas meters.

“Unlike other meters, the Q.Sonic fully meets the most demanding requirements regardless of the conditions where it is applied,” said Eric Bras, product manager for ultrasonic flow meters.

“When customers need accuracy, the Q.Sonic offers the lowest possible uncertainty available for the most demanding operations, resulting in substantial savings,” he added.

The new meter is available with SonicExplorer PC-based software, which aims to help operators, service engineers and technicians to configure and diagnose the meter locally or remotely, thereby cutting the maintenance cost by up to three quarters.

According to Honeywell, the Q.Sonic’s internal pressure and temperature sensors are aimed to ensure accurate calculation of the reynolds number and dynamic correction of the meter body, which focus on marinating lowest uncertainty in all situations.
