Calculate internal pipe pressure from external flow
The Portasonic® Calculator calculates the internal pressure within pipes, using non-invasive, external flow technology.
This calculator is designed to operate in partnership with our Portasonic 2.FLO® Ultrasonic Flow Meter. The Portasonic® is one of the worlds leading non-invasive flow meters – in other words, place a sensor on the outside and we can tell the flow rate on the inside. This is an essential tool for a wide variety of maintenance and inspection needs.
The Portasonic Calculator is designed as a supporting tool. It uses an empirical equation and detailed understanding of the pressures required to drive fluids at different flow speeds and fluid dynamics in a pipe, to calculate the liquid pressure to within 5% accuracy.
How & why to measure internal pipe pressure?
The pressure in a pipe system must be closely monitored to ensure it does not excee safe tolerances. Critically high pressures can lead to pipe failure, damage to property, and risk to personnel. The durability and safe functioning of pipes, pumps, and related equipment are also affected by pressure. Knowledge of the pressure in a pipe system is therefore important for ensuring that the flow is occurring as expected, in a safe and sustainable manner.
