GE Panametrics DigitalFlow XGS868i Steam Flow Ultrasonic Transmitter

GE’s DigitalFlow XGS868i is a complete ultrasonic flow metering system for measuring saturated and superheated steam. The electronics are housed in a compact transmitter that can be installed right at the flow measurement point, making transducer wiring easier, and reduces operation problems.

The measured flow velocity rate plus temperature and pressure inputs are fed into the onboard computer to calculate the steam mass flow rate, which can be displayed locally or transmitted to a remote system via your choice of analog or digital communications link. Like the full-featured GE DigitalFlow GS868, the XGS868i is available in single and dual channels for measuring two paths on a single pipe, or a single path along two different pipes.
