A number of Atrato ultrasonic flowmeters has recently been shipped to Peruvian engineering company Dynaflux S.A from JLC International, Titan Enterprises reports. Working collaboratively on a complex project with Minas Buenaventura, Peru's largest publicly-traded precious metals company, the team sought a flowmeter that offered accuracy and repeatability at low flow rates.
The Atrato line of ultrasonic flowmeters consists of 4m operating over the flow range 2mm/m up to 20l/m. 39 of the Atrato flowmeters were sent over, and were selected to enable accurate and reliable dosing of expensive mining reagents in the flotation stage of a mineral extraction process. In the past, Dynaflux S.A. had used the Atrato ultrasonic flowmeter in other smaller installations with excellent results. This positive experience led to the installation of thirty-nine units for this larger project.
The rugged, clean bore construction of the Atrato ultrasonic flowmeter makes it the perfect choice for a whole range of low flow applications. Taking advantage of proprietary embedded signal processing software developed by Titan Enterprises both viscous and non-viscous liquids can be routinely measured precisely.
The low flows that the Atrato flowmeter is capable of measuring vary from laminar to turbulent, and are highly immune from viscosity. With unparalleled turndown, repeatability, and linearity, the Atrato can monitor flow over a range of 250:1. Using the Atrato USB port, users can simply directly connect their laptop PC to the flowmeter and monitor the rate and total flow while also being able to alter a selection of operating parameters.
