Flow Meter - Unserway

In March 2019, Norte Energia began the "FLOW METER" project, with the objective of nationalizing a multipath ultrasonic flow measurement system. 

R&D Project Title::Nationalization of a multipath ultrasonic flow measurement system for turbinated flow monitoring in large water mains.

ANEEL Code: PD-07427-0219/2019

Estimated execution period:03/2019 to 12/2021

Objectives: 
The project foresees the nationalization of a multipath ultrasonic flow measurement system for monitoring turbinated flow in large water mains. Gains are expected from the efficiency and optimization of generation through the use of the technique.

Description: develop a multipath ultrasonic flow meter for monitoring turbinated flow in large water mains. In terms of improvement, the hardware will be optimized so that there is a significant reduction in costs, allowing greater diffusion of the application in large water mains. A new feature is also planned: the software will allow the user to conduct economic studies related to efficiency gains and optimization of generation based on measurements and scenarios created by the user himself.

Product to be produced: industrial prototype of the multipath ultrasonic flow measurement system for monitoring turbinated flow in large water mains. 

Estimated Investment: R$ 2,557,009.81

Entity Involved (execution): Gnarus Institute
