Ocean Ultrasonic Water Meters
Ultrasonic Water Meters (USWR) is based on the measurement of the signal propagation times.
An ultrasound measurement path consists of two ultrasonic transducers A and B, mounted on opposite sides of the flow meter tube (see picture).
The transducers can be operated both as senders and receivers and therefore allow to reverse the direction or irradiation.
The time required by the ultrasound for passing the distance L between the two transducers is known as the propagation time of the sound in a standing water medium.
In the event that this time is measured in the direction of the water flow V or in the opposite direction, the result will be shorter or longer because of the drag effect caused by the water flow.
By subtracting the reciprocal values of the propagation time and taking into account the angle of irradiation “n” and the length L, it is possible to calculate the average speed of the water flow.
