General information

TFX Ultra® ultrasonic flow and energy meters clamp onto the outside of pipes and do not contact the internal liquid. The technology has inherent advantages over alternate devices including:low-cost installation, no pressure head loss, no moving parts to maintain or replace, no fluid compatibility issue, and a large, bi-directional measuring range that ensures reliable readings even at very low and high flow rates.

TFX Ultra® is available in a variety of configurations that permit the user to select a meter with features suitable to meet particular application requirements.

The TFX Ultra® is available in two versions: a stand-alone flow meter, and an energy flow meter used in conjunction with dual clamp-on RTDs. The energy flow meter measures energy usage in BTU, MBTU, MMBTU, Tons, kJ, kW, MW and is ideal for retrofit, chilled water and other HVAC applications.
