While other flow measurement technologies (e.g. magnetic or vortex flow meters) are also used in district energy applications, clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters are often an optimal solution since they are externally mounted. They are especially well-suited for use with existing hot or chilled water distribution lines. In existing applications they are quick, easy and less expensive to install than other flow meter options because there is no need to cut the line, interrupt service, or drain the pipe. They also do not require the installation of bypass piping and valves for removal; maintenance expense is minimized since they do not have moving parts; and, used outside the pipe, they do not require periodic cleaning.
