    NOTE: Menu 90 shows Signal Strength and Menu 00 shows main flow rate and total. Frequently, fine tuning may be had by invoking Menu 90 and making small movements of one of the transducers to get the highest signal. Numbers over 80% are considered very good. Also, set the Filter Coefficient, with Menu 40 to 1 second to make the meter respond quickly. Then, put back to 4 seconds and save with Menu 26 and hit enter twice.

    Acoustic Coupling Grease Specifications:

    Dow Corning Product Name: MOLYKOTE™ BR-2 Plus High Performance Grease
    This material is designed to remain in a gel like form to increase the acoustic coupling of the ultrasonic transducers to the pipe. This material works from -57 to 204 Degrees C which is above the specs of the transducers.

    Here is a source to buy it: MSC # 31735293

    In a "pinch" one could use KY Jelly from the drug store but it is runny. The goal is to have a material that will not have bubbles in it and provides good sonic coupling. Air bubbles are the "enemy" of ultrasonic transducers. Using traditional Silicone sealant, such as that used for sealing windows, could also be used in an emergency but you MUST assure there are no air bubbles.

    Mag Meter Product Overview

    Ultrasonic Meter Transducer Installation requirements: On this flow meter, as well as of all flow meters, it is CRITICAL that the pipe remains full at all times. This meter requires that the flow remain relatively consistent. Note 10 diameters clear of obstruction upstream and 5 diameters down.

    How to Install Ultrasonic Clamp On Transducers

    Clamping system for pipes larger than 10" OD. Install by securing ends with clamps WITHOUT the transmitter and then stretch the nylon coated SS wire over the transmitter. BE SURE to grind a CLEAN area for the transmitter to conduct the sound AND use the Acoustic Coupling Grease on the transmitter/pipe interface.
