The Optisonic 8300 is a dedicated ultrasonic flowmeter for the measurement of superheated steam. The two-beam flowmeter delivers a measuring accuracy of 1%, high repeatability and a large dynamic-measuring range. Built for longterm use, the device features a full-bore flow sensor without moving parts or obstructions, and an overall sturdy and robust construction with no cables or sensitive parts exposed. Therefore, it can uphold its measuring accuracy without maintenance or subsequent calibration for up to 20 yr, says the manufacturer. With nominal sizes ranging from DN 100–1,000, Optisonic 8300 is particularly suited to high flowrates. Pressure and temperature ratings are up to 200 bars and 540°C, respectively. — Krohne Messtechnik GmbH, Duisburg, Germany
