What Is It?
The new Ultrasonic gas flow meter Q.Sonicplus is a six-path meter, and subject to an ‘enhanced’ Elster-Instromet patent, with more functionality, bringing about new end-user benefits, along with greater processing power that yields a lower measurement uncertainty.
Whether prices are high or low, the metering system is a critical element in the natural gas process, providing the cash register of the business. Custody transfer operation is central to this effort. High accuracy and reliability of the metering solution has become a key differentiator for midstream operators. The need for consistent measurements and a reliable, robust metering solutions is the need of the hour.
The Q.Sonicplus multi-path ultrasonic gas meter is ideally suited for custody transfermeasurements of natural gaas. The patented arrangement of measuring paths in conjunction with sophisticated ultrasonic sensors and digital signal processing account for maximum measurement accuracy with excellent long-term stability. The flow profile analysis of the Q.Sonicplus allows the otherwise conventional use of a flow conditioner to be dispensed with in many applications. The Q.Sonicplus ultrasonic gas meter delivers accuracy and insight to boost the reliability, performance and efficiency of custody transfer applications.How Does It Work?
The field-proven Honeywell Q.Sonicplus USM with a patented six-path configuration provides detailed flow profile recognition, superb noise immunity, and unrivaled pressure and gas velocity abilities.Using reflective paths and sophisticated diagnostics, our ultrasonic flow meter quickly identifies fouling or liquids inside the pipe. Fiscal measurements are fully compliant with AGA9, type approved (MID) by NMi, and explosion approved according to ATEX, IECEx, FM and CSA. With four double reflection paths (swirl paths) and two single reflection paths (axial paths), the primary measurement will provide compliant fiscal measurements even in case of a failure of one path of each type (axial/swirl).What Problems Does It Solve
Market leading ultrasonic metering technology, advanced diagnostics and easy-to-use software deliver the highest levels of accuracy, confidence, cost-effectiveness and long-term reliability.
The advanced metering technologies of the Honeywell Elster Q.Sonicplus is the next generation of ultrasonic flow meter technology and our response to the industry’s demands. The patented design of the Q.Sonicplus eliminates the need for extensive commissioning, installation and health checks and is designed with intelligent healthcare diagnostics, including real-time monitoring and trending of flow profile factors, swirl angles, asymmetry, turbulence and other real-world metering conditions. The Q.Sonicplus is about what matters most to you every day: measuring your gas flow safely, reliably, accurately and without worries. It is why the Q.Sonicplus is engineering confidence.
