TRANSPORT® PT878 FLOWMETER
OPTIONS AND SPECIFICATIONS
TRANSPORT FLOWMETER.
The TransPort PT878 Portable Liquid
Flowmeter is a complete portable
ultrasonic flow metering system with
options and accessories to meet
all your flow metering needs.
The TransPort flowmeter is
small, lightweight and easy to
use. The large LCD displays
velocity, volumetric and energy
flow rates, and totalized flow and
trend data in alphanumeric and
graphical formats. A rechargeable
battery pack with a universal
power supply charger completes
the package and makes this unit
the ideal go-anywhere flowmeter.
