Ultrasound acoustic wave fluid flow velocity sensors.
Ultrasonic sensors are contactless measurement devices which transmit and receive high frequency acoustic waves to measure flow velocity of a fluid.
Since there is no contact with the fluid to be measured, ultrasound sensor technology can be used in applications where sensors requiring contact are otherwise prohibited. These sensors have no moving parts which makes them very reliable, requiring very little maintenance.
Ultrasonic sensors can be housed in a single assembly combining the acoustic transmitter and receiver in one device, or in dual assembly separating the acoustic transmitter and receiver.
