    Installing/mounting 4.4 Determining a location ● Sensor data: Sensor type and size (indicated on label), length of sensor cable pair. ● Environment conditions: Mounting location transmitter/sensors, distance and required cable lengths, temperature, sun protection/rain, protection against dirt, vibrations, corrosion, easy access for maintenance: ladder or scaffolding, below ground or submersible.
  • Page 26 Installing/mounting 4.4 Determining a location ● Avoid, if possible, the following installations: – Installation at the highest point of the pipe system – Installation in vertical pipes with free outlet or downwards flow Selecting a location for the sensors 1. Locate the sensors downstream from the center of the longest available straight run. A location ten pipe diameters or greater downstream from the nearest bend will provide adequate flow profile conditions.
  • Page 27 Installing/mounting 4.4 Determining a location 5. Do not mount sensors from different ultrasonic flowmeters on the same pipe. Also, do not run the sensor cables in common bundles with cables from other instrumentation. You can run these cables through a common conduit ONLY if they originate at the same flowmeter.
