Acoustic Measurements


The construction and operation of a lead zirconate-titanate (TsTS-19) piezoelectric transducer as a component of the model UZR-V ultrasonic flowmeter with an Akustron counter is analyzed. Techniques are proposed for enhancing the operating efficiency of ultrasonic flowmeters. The study has resulted in the development of the UZD-1 and UZD-3 transducers, which utilize the new materials and have parameters superior to those of a standard transducer using TsTS-19 ceramic. The new transducers are recommended for systems designed to monitor cold and hot water flow in conduits from 30 mm to 1000 mm in diameter.
