Flow measurement with FLOWave

Innovative flow measurement using SAW technology

Reliable flow measurement is a major challenge, especially in hygienically demanding applications. With FLOWave, we have developed a compact solution which, thanks to its innovative SAW technology, does not require sensor elements in the measuring tube which could come into contact with the measuring medium and can measure not only the volume but also, e.g., the temperature and the density factor, regardless of the medium’s conductivity. The new technology has already proven successful in the pharmaceutical environment for CIP and WFI applications.

Innovative flowmeter for hygiene applications

Efficient CIP processes with FLOWave 

Absolute care is essential in pharmaceutical production – after all, people’s lives and health depend on the correct agent composition and the avoidance of contamination. FLOWave meets the highest hygiene requirements.

 

Flow measurement of ultra-pure media

Hygiene and product safety play a key role in the manufacture of infusion solutions. Therefore, only cutting-edge flow measurement systems can be used in this segment. FLOWave meets the highest hygiene requirements for the flow measurement of ultra-pure media. 

 

Contactless flow measurement thanks to SAW technology

Surface acoustic waves (SAW) occur in nature, e.g. as a result of seismic activities. We have harnessed these effects in a patented technology for the inline flow measurement of liquids. The principle dispenses with sensor elements in the measuring tube which could come into contact with the measuring medium.

Receive signals:

Wave groups

1WG   3WG   5WG

Interdigital transducers are induced by an electrical signal and create surface acoustic waves. These spread across the surface of the tube and, at a specific angle, convert into an acoustic wave that spreads through the liquid. The waves thus create receive signals when they pass through the liquid once or several times. This occurs both in and against the direction of flow. The time differences are proportional to the flow. The comparison of waves which run through the liquid once or several times results in outstanding measurement performances and additional assessments in terms of the type and properties of the liquids.

Future-proof thanks to standardised digital communication

FLOWave devices use Bürkert’s own electronic platform EDIP. EDIP stands for the “Efficient Device Integration Platform” of the new Bürkert product generation with, e.g., common user interface and digital communication which not only makes using the devices considerably easier to handle for users, but also makes integration into an existing fieldbus system child’s play.

 

FLOWave in real-world applications

Cleaning of pharmaceutical industrial plants

At L.B. Bohle Maschinen + Verfahren GmbH, FLOWave is used to guarantee the reliable and hygienic cleaning of pharmaceutical industrial plants. Read more about this field of application in our Best Practice Flyer.

Monitoring and documenting CIP processes

FLOWave was installed in the supply line of a filling machine for infusion bags at a leading German supplier of infusions, clinical nutrition, pharmaceuticals and medical products. Read more about the benefits of FLOWave for clean-in-place applications in our Best Practice Flyer.
