New Micronics Portaflow range

Portable, clamp-on, ultrasonic flow instruments retain the key feature of simple operation

Micronics has launched a new Portaflow range, featuring the latest ultrasonic flow-measurement technology, hydronic-liquid flow-energy measurement, and a comprehensive data-logging facility.

Building on its considerable experience and success with the former PF330 and 220 ranges, Micronics has developed a new range of portable, clamp-on, ultrasonic flow instruments, incorporating the latest technology while retaining the key feature of simple operation.

The Portaflow PF333 offers the user quick and accurate flow and energy measurement. With its easy-to-follow menu and simple set-up, results can be achieved within minutes of opening the case.

The range continues to bring simplicity to the non-invasive measurement of liquid flow, and now has the addition of hydronic-liquid flow-energy measurement for hot and chilled water applications.

The PF333 uses the latest cross-correlation ultrasound flow-measurement system to measure flowrate, and clamp-on PT100 temperature sensors to measure flow and return temperatures.

With its simple set-up and easy-to-follow menu, results can be achieved in minutes

Heat or cooling load is calculated from a combination of the flowrate and the flow and return temperature difference, to comply with EN1434 section 6.

The integral data logging has a capacity of 100 million data points with 12 named sites, and can be downloaded via USB to CSV files and exported to Excel.

Compact and reliable, the Portaflow range has been designed to provide sustained performance in industrial environments, with the new cross-correlation flow-measurement system providing improved accuracy for flow and measurement audits of old – and often challenging – pipework in existing installations.
