LEVIFLOW® LFSC-D Series

Ultrasonic High Precision Clamp-On Flow Sensor For Flexible Tubing

LEVIFLOW® LFSC-D Clamp-On Sensors For Flexible Tubing

The LEVIFLOW® clamp-on flowmeters are designed for non-invasive flow measurements of high purity fluids with flexible tubing.

Two piezoelectric transducers, mounted in the sensor housing, generate and receive an ultrasonic wave. The wave going in direction of the flow (with-stream wave) is accelerated and the wave going against the flow direction (against-stream wave) is slowed down. The two waves are processed by a signal converter. The difference of the transit time of both waves is proportional to the velocity of the fluid.

Clamp-On System Configuration

System configuration for usage with LEVIFLOW® configuration software

The standard configuration of the LEVIFLOW® clamp-on flowmeters consists of a flow sensor and a converter with a digital signal processor (DSP) for processing the sensor signals. Various signals (analog output, digital input and digital output) are provided and can be configured with a PC software. A RS485 bus allows arrays of multiple flowmeters. In addition, the sensor value is shown on a 4-digit display. For debugging, data collection and configuration with a PC the LEVIFLOW® Configuration Software is available at Levitronix® together with a USB to RS485 adaptor.

Applications

  • High purity liquid processes

  • Sterile non-invasive flow measurement in Pharmaceutical manufacturing

  • Biotech processes

  • Flow control in combination with Levitronix® MagLev pump systems
