Non-Contacting Flow Measurement
Recommended for fluids like water, glycol, oil and most chemicals. The PTFM 1.0 ultrasonic transducers strap-on the outside of pipes from ½” to 48″ (13 to 1200 mm) diameter. The ultrasonic signal works through all common metal and plastic pipe materials. Transducers can be mounted without shutting down flow and there is no obstruction or pressure drop.

User-Friendly Operating System
Calibration is easy with the onscreen menu system. Just enter the pipe diameter, wall thickness and pipe material. The PTFM 1.0 is powered by an internal, rechargeable NiMH battery or can be operated continuously with AC power adapter. Each PTFM 1.0 includes a watertight carry case, transducer set, cables and mounting clamps.

Portable Ultrasonic Flowmeter for Troubleshooting, Calibration Checks and Balancing Flow

Measures Flow from the Outside of a Pipe
The Greyline PTFM 1.0 Non-Contacting Ultrasonic Flow Meter works by measuring the “transit time” or “time of flight” for ultrasonic sound pulses transmitted from one transducer to another. The transit time in the direction of flow is faster than the transit time against the flow. By comparing these differences with precision timing circuits, the PTFM 1.0 is able to accurately calculate the flow rate.

Choice of V, Z or W mounting method depends on the application and pipe diameter. VMount is the most common method while Z-Mount is used for larger pipes or weak signal applications and W-Mount for smaller pipes.

Works with Common Pipe Materials
Mount the ultrasonic transducers on the outside of metal or plastic pipes including carbon steel, stainless steel, ductile iron, cast iron, PVC, PVDF, fiberglass, copper, brass, aluminum and pipes with bonded liners including epoxy, rubber and Teflon. Avoid pipes made with porous materials (e.g. wood or concrete) or with loose insertion liners.

Measures Clean Liquids in Full Pipes
The Greyline PTFM 1.0 Non-Contacting Ultrasonic Flow Meter is designed to measure clean, non-aerated liquids like water, chemicals and oils with less than 2% solids or bubbles . The ultrasonic transducers can be mounted on vertical or horizontal pipes.

Simple Menu System for Easy Start-up and Calibration
Calibration and start-up can be done in a few minutes. Use the built-in 5-button keypad to enter the pipe material and OD, wall thickness and fluid type. The PTFM 1.0 will display the correct transducer separation distance. Secure the stainless steel pipe clamps and align the mounting brackets on the outside of the pipe. Put coupling compound (included) on the transducer faces and insert them into the mounting brackets. The PTFM 1.0 will immediately begin to display, transmit and totalize flow.

Built-in Data Logger with Windows Software Included
Set up the 300,000 point data logger to store time and date-stamped flow readings from 10 second to 5 minute intervals. View the convenient on-screen ‘Flow Report’ where total, minimum, maximum and average flow rates are stored in a 24 hour daily summary. Transfer flow logs to your PC or laptop through the PTFM 1.0′s USB outpu t. Greyline Logger software (included) displays data in both graph and table formats with one-click export to Microsoft Excel®, images or CSV files for use in other programs.

Non-Contacting Portable Flowmeter for Clean Liquids in Metal and Plastic Pipes

Easy to Install
The PTFM 1.0 Portable Transit Time Flow Meter is designed to measure clean liquids in full pipes . I t works by injecting sound through the pipe wall and into the flowing liquid. The battery-powered flow meter, transducers, mounting clamps and accessories are supplied with a rugged watertight carrying case. Use it for troubleshooting, flow studies and for testing calibration of inline flow meters. The PTFM 1.0 works on metal and plastic pipes and measures forward or reverse flow. A built-in data logger and Windows software is included.

Easy to Calibrate
Use the 5-button keypad and menu system to set up the flowmeter by entering the pipe material, diameter and wall thickness. The PTFM 1.0 calculates the transducer separation distance and mounting method automatically.

Fiberglass and Radio Frequency Transparency

In today’s connected world, we depend on cellular telephone signals, Wi-Fi networks and over the air radio and television signals. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity are essential to on-site work environments. Steel structures significantly disrupt these signals. Fiberglass Grating is an essential part of building structures that are “electronically transparent” and do not interfere with radio frequency transmissions.
