SONO 3000 The brain behind SONOFLO advanced technology

SONO 3000 is a transit time-based transmitter that can be used on any pipe up to DN 4000.It employs an advanced transit time signal processing technology with an innovative direct ultrasound transmission technique and digital correlation signal detection technique that ensures a reliable and accurate signal detection for a wide range of processes. Direct ultrasound transmission One of the keys to SONO 3000 flowmeter precision performance is its transmission technique. It shoots ultrasound pulses directly to the receiving transducer without bouncing them off the interior walls of the pipe. This way, the presence of any scale build-up on interior pipe walls will not weaken or degrade transmitted signals. Advanced digital signal processing and diagnostics Difficult applications involving many bends, valves or short inlet conditions often require closer examination to maximize accuracy and performance. Knowing that the quality of a transit time flowmeter depends on its ability to
SENSORPROM ensures correct start-up and sensor verification everytime.

determine exactly when the ultrasound signal reaches the receiving transducer, Siemens engineers developed a new correlation method that greatly improves signal detection. These features are deployed in the self-diagnostic menus such as signal level, signal/noise ratio and the quality of the measured transmission time. SONOFLO Accuracy SONO 3000 achieves greater accuracy rates 0.5 % of actual flow than earlier generations of transit time flowmeters.

Since it can detect even weak signals, SONO 3000 can be used for a wider spectrum of applications and is especially well suited for large pipes.

Siemens has the experience, technology, and service capabilities to handle virtually all the flowmeterrelated needs of your industry. SITRANS F US SONOFLO flowmeters, SONO 3100 and SONO 3300 offer a great solution for applications requiring robust performance and maximum efficiency. They are ideal for: Industrial processes Water and wastewater Petrochemical processes Cryogenic Fiscal metering

wastewater or petro-chemical flow processes. It is also built for rugged durability and available in both carbon steel and stainless steel. And the transducers can easily be changed without the need for down time or process shut-downs. So for operations that routinely push their flowmeter to the limit, SONO 3100 is the flowmeter that offers the highest possible performance. Pressure ratings up to PN40/ANSI 300 lbs are standard. Materials as Hastelloy, Doublex or Titanium and higher ratings are available on customer specified units. For applications with short inlet conditions, 4-track solutions are also available on request. SONO 3300 is an excellent choice for all purpose applications for water, treated wastewater, energy, district heating, irrigation, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) or general industrial applications. While the transducers cannot be changed and the choice of construction material is more limited, SONO 3300 offers a price/performance ratio thats hard to beat.
