Coltraco Ultrasonics is proud to announce the launch of Portasonic® PLUS, our latest addition to our FLOW range. Portasonic® PLUS is a handheld, ultrasonic, transit-time flow meter with numerous features which establish it as an industry-leader in flow rate monitoring. It has been developed by our highly talented Research, Development, Design, and Ergonomics team, using our unique R&D position based in County Durham. It is a contribution to our two core missions as a company SAFESITE and SAFESHIP – to ensure the safe operation and efficiency of industrial facilities in both land-based and maritime contexts.

Key Features:

  • Non- Invasive Measurement – using our over 30 years of ultrasonic expertise, Portasonic® PLUS requires no physical modification of a pipe, using beaded chain clamps to externally monitor the flow-rate with no risk of contamination or compromised pipe integrity
  • Datalogging and Export– Portasonic® PLUS’s 4MB internal database can store up to 22,500 flow rate measurements, and can export these via Micro USB to a PC either in real-time or at a later date.
  • Integrated Thickness Gauge – The 10mm thickness gauge built-in to Portasonic® PLUS allows monitoring of the pipe wall up to 20mm to check for corrosion and ensure the pipe meets operationally safety requirements.
  • Dual Power Modes – Portasonic® PLUS can be used with standard 9V batteries for 12 hours continuous use or connected to an external power source by Micro USB to provide 24/7 operation.
  • Multiple Flow Rate Metrics – Choose between volumetric flow rate, mass flow rate, or energy transfer, calculated internally by Portasonic® PLUS, for the most applicable data presentation.

As part of our effort to provide adaptable and ergonomic ultrasonic solutions to industrial problems, Portasonic® PLUS has several features which allow it to serve as a tailor-made solution. Choose from two sensor options to fit pipes of different diameters from 1/2″ to 28″ or 1″ to 98″ in diameter.

There is also the option for an IP68 rated waterproof variant of both sensor types, and additional cable lengths to the 1.5m cable supplied as standard. The internal database comes pre-programmed with 12+ pipe materials and 19+ fluid types, but any other fluid can be inputted using its speed of sound, allowing for application on any specific fluids in your industrial operation.

These features establish Portasonic® PLUS as a highly versatile solution which can be used across a wide range of industries.
