Description

Detailed Description of the Invention

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to an ultrasonic flow rate measuring device for measuring the flow rate and flow velocity of gas or liquid by ultrasonic waves.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art Heretofore, as an ultrasonic flow rate measuring device of this type, for example, JP-A-9-18591 and JP-A-11-
No. 3519926 is known, and FIG.
The example of -18591 gazette is shown. In FIG. 11, a pair of ultrasonic transmitters / receivers 2 and 3 are provided on the peripheral surfaces facing each other with the center line of the measurement flow path 1 through which the fluid to be measured flow and having a predetermined angle with respect to the center line. At the fluid inlet 4 of the passage 1, a rectifying body 6 composed of a plurality of thin tubes 5 arranged in parallel is provided in the same direction as the measurement passage 1. Then, ultrasonic waves are transmitted and received between the ultrasonic transceivers 2 and 3 in the forward and reverse directions with respect to the flow of the fluid, the flow velocity is measured from the propagation time difference in both directions, and the flow rate is calculated from the cross-sectional area of the pipe. There is. At this time, the flow entering the measurement flow path 1 is regulated by the thin tube 5 forming the rectifying body 6 so that the flow direction is the same direction as the measurement flow path 1 to reduce the inclination of the flow line in the measurement section, or to reduce the vortex. Is suppressed to reduce the fluctuation of the reception level of the ultrasonic wave due to the reflection and bending of the ultrasonic wave at the boundary surface of the flow turbulence, thereby preventing the deterioration of the measurement accuracy.

[0003]

However, in the above-mentioned conventional configuration, when used for actual measurement as shown in FIG. 12, the flow rate measuring device is miniaturized when the fluid of the measuring device is installed on the pipe. There are bending and thinning of the flow path at a short interval necessary for this, bending of the flow path of the on-off valve 23 part of the fluid introduction path 21 provided on the upstream side of the measurement portion, local cross-sectional area change, etc. Uneven flow tends to occur at the part. Especially when the measurement part is common and the piping conditions other than the above-mentioned measurement parts are designed according to the individual actual requirements, the rectifying body installed in the above-mentioned measurement flow path can be used to eliminate the complicated drift in each piping part. It becomes difficult to exert sufficient rectification effect.

That is, when the structure of the on-off valve of the introduction path or the bend of the pipe is largely different, the non-uniform flow also largely changes, and non-uniform flow or overflow occurs in the measurement flow path. However, there was a problem that the accuracy of flow rate measurement was lost due to disappearance. Especially, due to the design change in the introduction channel, the flow condition may change and the accuracy of flow rate measurement may be affected.

The present invention solves the above problems, and prevents the instability of the flow rate measurement accuracy due to the fact that the specifications of the flow passages in the introduction passage are different and the flow state leading to the inlet of the measurement flow passage is greatly different. The flow shape of the fluid flowing through the measurement flow path is improved by performing flow rectification or regulation and rectification of the flow direction before entering the measurement flow path inlet to improve the shape of piping such as the introduction path. The aim is to achieve high measurement accuracy regardless of the situation.

[0006]

In order to solve the above-mentioned conventional flow rate measuring device, the flow rate measuring device of the present invention has a structure in which an on-off valve, an introduction passage including a downstream passage of the on-off valve and a measurement flow passage are provided. A joint connecting portion is provided between the two, and a flow rectifying mechanism is provided at the joint connecting portion.

As a result, when the fluid flow passes through the on-off valve, it is bent at the on-off valve portion and collides with the facing wall surface of the flow path on the downstream side of the on-off valve, and the drift caused by the above-mentioned reasons is jointed. It is alleviated by the rectification mechanism of the part, and the fluctuation of the flow velocity distribution at the meter side flow path inlet is improved.

[0008]

Reference numeral 35 represents a rectified state of the fluid, and the flow velocity distribution in the flow path is represented in proportion to the length of the arrow. A discharge path 36 is connected to the discharge bending portion 33. The fluid to be measured flows out from the outlet 37 of the discharge path 36. The flow path 24 on the downstream side of the on-off valve, the measurement path 30, and the discharge path 36 of the introduction path 21 are U-shaped.

The operation and action of the ultrasonic flow rate measuring device configured as described above will be described below. First, the fluid to be measured flows from the inflow port 22 of the introduction path 21 through an external pipe (not shown). Further, the open / close valve 23 is opened, passes through the valve seat opening 26, hits the opposing wall 29 of the downstream passage 24 of the on / off valve, changes direction, and forms a drift along the opposing wall surface 29 to the fluid control means 25.

When a fluid passes through the hole 43 provided in the fluid control means 42, an excessive flow rate is prevented from flowing due to the passage resistance, so that the uneven flow is diffused along the upstream surface of the fluid control means 42, and the hole 43 provided on the entire surface. Flowing in the flow control means a weak drift on the downstream side of the fluid control means 42.

Further, since the cylinder of the fluid control means aligns the flow of the fluid in the direction of the flow path, there is no lateral vector in the flow, and it functions to prevent the occurrence of turbulence, turbulence and other turbulence in the flow. Next, the fluid control means 45 is an aggregate of cylinders having a length in the flow direction, such as a triangle, a quadrangle, a circle, etc., in addition to the cylinder having a hexagonal lattice as shown in FIG.

In FIG. 8, a blocking plate 48 is attached so as to block a part of the flow path, and a part of the flow from the introduction path collides with this blocking plate 48, and therefore flows along the blocking plate 48 and blocks. Since it flows around the lower part of the plate 48 to the lower part, even if a non-uniform flow occurs in the introduction path, the blocking plate 48
When it hits, the drift is diffused and the drift of the flow can be eliminated.
