In our White Paper about Flow Averaging you learn, which averaging method is appropriate for your process and how you can adjust the setting to achieve optimal results.
You can use SONOFLOW and SEMIFLOW sensors for multiple applications, e.g., pump feedback, control and calibration, flow rate monitoring, volume totalizing, or dosing and filling. Thus, it is crucial to consider the process before setting the averaging.
While you see a flow curve with oscillation around the mean value influenced by noise and pump characteristic in chart (A) on the right side of this page, the curve on chart (B) is smooth without any peak values. Both charts have the same origin, using the same installation with SONOFLOW CO.55 flow meter and pump. The only difference is the configuration of the averaging, showing the lower and upper end of the averaging range applicable only in very specific processes.
SONOTEC offers two averaging methods: Segmented and Rolling Averaging. Both methods can be further adjusted by activating the Dynamic averaging option. Additionally, each averaging type is configurable for a selectable Number of samples. The Number of samples indicates the number of values considered in the averaging calculation. The C³ Software offers different options for segmented and rolling averaging. [...]
