Technologically advanced ultrasonic flowmeter

Oilfield Technology,

FMC Technologies Measurement Solutions has released the latest and most advanced technological tool in fluid measurement, the Smith Meter Ultra 8c liquid ultrasonic flowmeter. With additional transducers and measurement paths, the Ultra 8c joins Measurement Solution’s Ultra Series meters as the most accurate and best performing ultrasonic meter in the product line. Its linearity has been improved to +/- 0.12% over a wider 15:1 flow turndown ratio over the standard measurement range, making it suitable for custody transfer applications for heavy, high viscosity crude oils.

The Ultra 8c also features state of the art diagnostics capability, with onboard memory for historical data and an innovative web based interface with an easy to use touchscreen user interface. The Ultra 8c capabilities allow it to be used for remote monitoring, data storage and diagnostic analysis as part of an intelligent, networked control system.


Andrew Soddy, FMC Technologies Measurement Solutions Product Manager said, ‘the Ultra 8c has the features to fulfil the promise of ultrasonic technology with extremely high accuracy in a clean full bore design without the need for flow conditioning. With all new electronics and built in diagnostic capabilities, this is the perfect meter for leak detection, custody transfer and other high accuracy problems.’
