We now have 20 FLEXIM PIOX ultrasound meters performing well and sending data back in real time. They have improved safety, accuracy and production. I’m pleased at how non-intrusive metering makes my job easier and the plant more efficient by reducing downtime. Before, we couldn’t repair acid leaks on the run because we couldn’t operate without a concentration meter.Chris H.Sulfuric Acid Superintendent

The differential meter was a lot more noisy; it read higher flow than the FLEXIM. And the measurements would drop over time as it plugged. The ultrasonic gave us good, flat readings with minimal noise. For three months we tested it and then installed it permanently. It is now one of the plant’s safety interlocks and it is still giving accurate, noise-free measurements. And we don’t have to take it out and clean it!Mike Reliability Engineer

I think we can safely say that ultrasonic flowmeters have finally met their potential. I have taken more than 600 readings with the FLEXIM portable meter, and my success rate is 99.8 percent; and that includes pipes containing acids, water, gasses, and slurries at several hundred degrees. At the end of the day, I collect all the data dumps from the built-in data logger and export it to my spread sheet program.Greg H.Process Analytics Chemist
