Ultrasonic Flow for biogas, landfill and sewage gas
The OPTISONIC 7300 Biogas is an ultrasonic flowmeter for low pressure biogas, landfill and sewage gas applications. The flowmeter is ideally suited to measure biogas with a high CO2 content as well as small amounts of other media like H2S, nitrogen, hydrocarbons or condensation water. Its corrosion resistant titanium transducers provide a strong ultrasonic signal into the gas. The signal processing of the meter allows a better detection of small, strongly dampened acoustic signals.
The OPTISONIC 7300 Biogas features an integrated temperature sensor and optional pressure sensor that enables a temperature and pressure compensated standard volume calculation. The biogas meter also allows accurate online measurement of methane content in biogas and sewage gas (just ±2% error of measured value). This saves on costs as additional analytical systems for methane measurement are not needed. The biogas meter provides a wide measuring range (turndown ratio: 100:1). The OPTISONIC 7300 Biogas comes with ATEX approval (zone 1) and digital communication options.
