TFX Ultra™

CLAMP-ON ULTRASONIC FLOW AND ENERGY METERS FOR LIQUIDS
TFX Ultra ultrasonic flow and energy meters clamp onto the outside of pipes and do not contact the internal liquid. The technology has inherent advantages over alternate devices including: low-cost installation, no pressure head loss, no moving parts to maintain or replace, no fluid compatibility issue, and a large, bi-directional measuring range that ensures reliable readings even at very low and high flow rates. TFX Ultra is available in a variety of configurations that permit the user to select a meter with features suitable to meet particular application requirements. The TFX Ultra is available in two versions: a stand-alone flow meter, and an energy flow meter used in conjunction with dual clamp-on RTDs. The energy flow meter measures energy usage in BTU, MBTU, MMBTU, Tons, kJ, kW, MW and is ideal for retrofit, hydronic and other HVAC applications.

FEATURES
 May be used to measure clean liquids as well as those with

BENEFITS
 Reduced material costs: clamp-on sensor eliminates the need for

small amounts of suspended solids or aeration (e.g., surface water, sewage).
 Bi-directional flow measurement system. Totalizer options include

in-line flanges, pipe fittings, strainers, and filters.
 Reduced installation time: the TFX Ultra may be installed and fully

operational within minutes.
 Reduced maintenance costs: with no moving parts, there is

forward, reverse and net total.
 Modbus RTU and BACnet® MS/TP over RS485; Ethernet connection

includes BACnet®/IP, EtherNet/IP™, and Modbus TCP/IP protocols.
 Large, easy-to-read digital display.  Rugged, aluminum enclosure ensures a long service life in

nothing on the TFX Ultra to wear down – no repair kits or replacement parts are needed.
 No need to shut down the process for installation or maintenance

due to clamp-on sensor design. harsh environments.
 Certified for hazardous area installation in North America

and Europe.
