GE TransPort PT878 Panametrics Portable Liquid Ultrasonic Flowmeter

How to install ultrasonic flow transducers onto a pipe

This video explains how to install clamp-on ultrasonic transducers onto a pipe, using the information you programmed into the system based on pipe size and thickness, media type and temperature, and pipe traverses. You'll walk through adjusting the clamping fixtures to the proper spacing, understanding ideal location of the transducer installation on the pipe for best ultrasonic sound propagation. The video also shows proper sensor position on the circumference of the pipe, and identifying the upstream and downstream transducers for wiring to the PT878.

Finally, the video walks you through applying couplant to the transducers, installing the transducers on the clamping fixtures, and securing the hardware properly before connecting the transducer cables.
