Turbulent flows of gases and liquids, e.g. in pipes or valves, can be monitored with permanently installed structure-borne sound probes (contact probes) as well as air-borne sound probes. In addition, structure-borne sound probes are also suitable for processes in which friction is responsible for the generation of ultrasound (e.g. bearing testing). In combination with the stationary sensor box and a fixed installation of ultrasonic transducers at an inspection point, short-term level changes as well as long-term trend developments can be observed.
Based on changes in ultrasonic levels, it is possible to make statements about the condition of the plant or process. For recurring measurements with recording of measurement data, the ultrasonic probe can be fixed with a magnetic base or universal magnet. For continuous monitoring or fixed mounting within a safety cover/zone, the probe is screwed on with a grub screw.
Advantages of the inspection solution: Connection of various probes for stationary monitoring of ultrasonic levels; Online monitoring of levels and alarm triggers; Trend observations over longer periods of time; Broadband signal acquisition from 1 kHz to 100 kHz
Automatic or manual input gain, bandpass filter, alarm thresholds, averaging; RS485 interface and current output.
