Installing new meters for non-billing applications has historically been a costly, labor-intensive process. A hole must be dug that is large enough for one or more people to work or, in some cases, to allow access for a crane. The system must also be shut down and flushed. As such, many water treatment plants (WTPs) delay replacing or adding meters to the system unless absolutely necessary.

Ultrasonic clamp-on meters offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional electromagnetic meters and other metering technologies. Ultrasonic clamp-on meters first hit the market in the 1960s. As with many technologies, they have evolved gradually over time, becoming both easier to use and more precise.

An ultrasonic clamp-on meter can be installed in around 30 minutes by a single person in tight spaces and can be easily relocated as needed. They are a cost-effective solution for a variety of projects, including non-revenue water monitoring and reduction, water age studies, or any other data-gathering application.
