SHARKY 774 compact



SHARKY 774 COMPACT ultrasonic energy meter is designed for measuring the energy consumption in heating or bifunctional (heating/cooling) application for billing purposes. Its static ultrasonic technology is based on the measurement of the transit time. It offers many benefits: no moving parts (reduces wear and tear of the metering components), low pressure loss, wide dynamic measuring range, low start flowrate and insensitiveness to suspended particles.
