Technical Ceramics Highlights Ultrasonic Flow Sensors



Morgan Technical Ceramics showcased its expertise in producing components used in domestic smart metering applications for the home to measure consumed utilities, including water-coupled sensors for heat and water metering and air-coupled sensors for gas metering.


Ultrasonic flow sensors are ideal for smart metering of heat energy and water meters. These products can assess the flow measurement of water, by transmitting and receiving ultrasonic waves. Time of Flight or Doppler shift flow can be measured by transmitting and receiving ultrasonic waves across a liquid channel. Designed using the company’s high-performance piezoelectric materials, the water-coupled sensors are suitable for continuous operation at 16 bar operating pressure and in high temperature environments of up to 120 °C.


Morgan Technical Ceramics also displayed a range of ultrasonic sensors developed for gas flow measurement. This technology utilises two or three transducers for smart metering of natural gas or air-coupled level sensing of liquids and solids. Capable of operating in temperatures between -20°C and 70°C in air, and  -10°C and 40°C in natural gas, the transducers deliver an assured solution for assessing gas flow measurement.


Additionally, the company has the capability to produce customised transducer designs for a wide variety of applications. Specialist engineers within the business can accommodate a range of requirements, adapting the architecture, manufacturing processes and materials of the sensors to meet individual customer needs. A team of experienced and knowledgeable engineers from Morgan Technical Ceramics were present at the stand and discussed the extensive capabilities of the company’s product range.


The company displayed its range of High Voltage capacitors, specifically suitable for use in Powerline Communication Coupling applications, enabling data to be safely coupled into the existing electricity distribution networks and grids.


Paul Turnbull, business manager for Morgan Technical Ceramics in Ruabon, commented: “With over 50 years’ experience, Morgan Technical Ceramics has built up extensive expertise enabling us to advise customers seeking new and innovative solutions involving a wide range of dielectric materials and sensing components.”
