Coltraco Ultrasonics proudly operate in the Food & Liquid Processing market sector supplying instrumentation and systems to manufacturing plants

The Portapipe® is a portable and battery powered liquid level indicator designed to non-invasively, accurately, and reliably measure the liquid level within pipes and small cylinders.

Type – Ultrasonic Liquid Level Indicator for Pipes

Part Number – 3174740-PIPE

Fluid Types – It has a built-in database which includes commonly used fluids such as Water (at 10°C, 20°C or 30°C), Sea Water, Diesel, Petrol, Fuel Oil, LPG, Ethanol, FK-5-1-12, Freon R134A, Freon R22, HFC-227ea, Methanol, FM200™, NOVEC™ 1230 and many more. Add any fluid simply by inputting its speed of sound.

Pipe Materials – Features a built-in database of commonly used pipe materials, including carbon steel, copper, PVC, and fibreglass, along with their respective sound speeds. Add any custom material type simply by inputting its speed of sound.

The Portasonic® PRO is a handheld tablet-based ultrasonic clamp-on flow meter with pressure prediction software for calculating internal pipe pressure from measured flow rates. It combines the functionality of the Portasonic® 2.FL0 in measuring flow rates non-invasively with the Portasonic® CALCULATOR, to form the first instrument capable of calculating the internal pressure within pipes, using non-invasive, externally measured flow sensors.

The Portasonic® 2.FL0 is a handheld, clamp on, non-invasive ultrasonic transit-time flowmeter designed to measure flow rates liquids in pipes accurate to +/- 0.5% without requiring any invasive installation. It works on a wide range of liquid types containing less than 10% solid content, and pipes from DN15 – DN2500 made from different metal or plastic materials.

P/N: 2618949-PSO

The PORTATANK® is a non-invasive ultrasonic liquid level indicator capable of detecting liquid levels in a huge range of applications on virtually all liquid types from small 15 cm diameter AFF mechanical foam extinguishers, clean agent fire suppression systems, oil levels in Transformers and  Ring Main Units (RMU) all the way up to 15 m diameter industrial tanks.  Our most versatile liquid level indicator to date providing advanced diagnostics through a supplementary handheld oscilloscope included with every unit. Portable, durable and hand-held, the Portatank® offers greater flexibility when testing a range of applications, operated by one person with no installation cost.

P/N: 3141184-TANK

Fluid handling systems are comprised of different components that aid in the efficient and safe storage and flow of the fluids for food & beverage production.

PERMAFLOW®, is a fixed clamp-on ultrasonic transit time flow/heat meter designed for the fluids handling market sectors – accurate to +/- 1%. Coltraco Ultrasonics’ flow meters allow their users to be better-faster-cheaper in their applications. In a single instrument, the Permaflow® measures and monitors volumetric flow rate, mass flow rate, and energy (heat quantity) flow rate with a built-in database of over 23 different pipe materials.

PORTATANK®, a handheld non-invasive ultrasonic liquid level indicator has been designed and created for our customers’ needs. It accurately measures and identifies the liquid level within tanks/ large containers between 0.5-15 meters in width. It has instant liquid level detection within a clear LED result with very clear LIQUID / NO LIQUID results. Verifies fixed level indicators/ sight glasses to ensure the accuracy of measurements where the tank cannot be opened for safety reasons. This is vital to keeping your team safe.  Ergonomic, rugged, hand-held, with durable enclosure and slim-line extension rod for inspecting banked rows of cylinders.
