Insertion sensor

The insertion sensor uses advanced Pulse-Doppler technology to measure flow velocity. The insertion sensor is used when the pipe is accessible from the outside only. This sensor is for use in full pipes or in partially filled pipes in combination with an external level sensor (e.g. pressure or ultrasonic). These sensors can be installed into existing pipework through a 5 cm / 2″ ball valve.

The construction of the insertion sensor is flush with the inner pipe wall, enabling pipes to be cleaned without removal of the sensor
