The ultrasonic flow sensor SONOFLOW CO detects the flow rate of liquids in plastic tubes quickly and reliably. The non-invasive sensor has no contact to the medium and is particularly suited for applications with strict hygienic standards. The clamp-on mounting concept eliminates any risk of contamination or leaking. Besides multiple off-the-shelf standard sizes, SONOTEC also offers a sensor solution for combined flow-bubble detection. Different housing materials, such as aluminum, stainless steel or plastics, are also available. 

The contactless flow sensor SONOFLOW CO combines precise measuring performance and high quality with a unique compact and cost efficient sensor concept.

Customer Reviews

Jeff Poland, President and CEO at Century HLM, on our air bubble sensors:

“We started with SONOTEC's ABD05 series sensor. After our research and interview process SONOTEC had the only sensor capable of meeting 60601 3rd edition specifications for a fail-safe free hanging non-intrusive arterial line air detector sensor.” [Read more]

Jochen Hübner, R&D and Quality Management Representative at Herrmann Apparatebau GmbH, on our Air Bubble Sensors:

“When searching for a suitable sensor our engineers came across SONOTEC. We chose the air bubble detector ABD06 of the SONOCHECK-series – in a customized version. The small size and the approved safety functions were the main reasons that spoke for the sensor.” [Read more]
