Title: FLOW CONDUIT INSERT, ULTRASONIC FLOW METER COMPRISING SUCH FLOW CONDUIT INSERT, AND USE OF A FLOW CONDUIT INSERT
Abstract:
Disclosed herein is a flow conduit insert (FCI) for a flow conduit (CON) of an ultrasonic flow meter (UFM), the ultrasonic flow meter (UFM) being arranged to measure a flow of a liquid passing through the flow conduit (CON) by means of an ultrasound signal, the flow conduit insert (FCI) being adapted for being inserted into the inner space of the flow conduit (CON), the flow conduit insert (FCI) being adapted for accommodating the entire path (PTH) in the flow conduit (CON) of the ultrasound signal, the flow conduit insert (FCI) having a first end (1EN) and a second opposite (2EN) end and an inner flow channel (CUN), said first and second ends (1EN, 2EN) being connected by the flow channel (CUN), the flow conduit insert (FCI) being adapted such that the flow of liquid passes through the flow channel (CUN), wherein the flow conduit insert (FCI) comprises a first and a second part (IPA, 2PA) forming the flow channel (CUN), said first and second parts (IPA, 2PA) each extending from said first end (1EN) to said second end (2EN), wherein each of said first and second parts (IPA, 2PA) comprises one or more guide elements (GUE) extending into the flow channel (CUN). An ultrasonic flow meter (UFM) comprising such flow conduit insert (FCI) and use of a flow conduit insert (FCI) for correcting flow is also disclosed.
