phoenix | x-ray inspection and CT products from GE celebrates 15 years

BILLERICA, MASSACHUSETTS, USA- February 19, 2014- GE’s (NYSE: GE) Measurement & Control business recently introduced the PanaFlow Z3 process flow meter to its portfolio of ultrasonic liquid flow meters. PanaFlow Z3 joins a new generation of industrially-designed Panametrics flow meters that provides customers high performance in sleek, compact packages.

The Z3 uses three-path technology and new, ultra-reliable electronics for peace-of-mind measurement of nominal temperature liquids. It offers process and industrial customers ultrasonic benefits and lower cost of ownership than non-ultrasonic flow meters.

  • Integrated flow cell with fully enclosed transducers and buffers is rugged, compact and easy to handle. Transducers are field-replaceable with no process shutdown necessary.
  • Equipped with ultra-reliable electronics for low risk, repeatable measurement.
  • IThree-path technology provides better accuracy and peace-of-mind redundancy.
  • Incorporates Panametrics expertise for flow measurement in difficult applications.

“Customers who have older technology flow meters now have an ultrasonic alternative for process flow measurement,” said Tom Michalowski, global product manager for liquid flow at GE Measurement & Control. “The Z3 gives them the accuracy they need without the maintenance, installation and calibration costs associated with other flow technologies. Their process can stay up and running without any disruption and in the end, that saves them significant money.”
