Q.Sonicmax’s patented design features the first eight-path ultrasonic meter to combine both reflective and direct paths. This enables Q.Sonicmax to effectively detect and correct for disturbances in the gas flow caused by short inlets, extenders, reducers, manifolds, elbows and a range of other piping elements common in natural gas plants. It also provides for extensive diagnostics to ensure accurate readings.

“Unlike other meters, the Q.Sonicmax fully meets the most demanding requirements regardless of the conditions where it is applied,” said Eric Bras, HPS product manager for ultrasonic flow meters. “When customers need accuracy, the Q.Sonicmax offers the lowest possible uncertainty available for the most demanding operations, resulting in substantial savings.”

It meets the accuracy class 0.5 requirements of the International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML) R 137-1&2 2012 without any exclusions. The OIML, an international, intergovernmental standards-setting body, promotes global harmonization of legal metrology. In their international recommendation they define three accuracy classes for gas meters.

The meter is also available with SonicExplorer PC-based software. Operators, service engineers and technicians can configure, diagnose, and monitor the meter locally or remotely, cutting maintenance costs by up to three quarters.
