“Accusonic has in fact recently purchased a copy of The Consumer Guide to Ultrasonic and Correlation Flowmeters. We have found it to be one of the more comprehensive and well-grounded overviews available in regard to ultrasonic flow measurement technology.

“As a leading manufacturer and supplier of long standing for multiple-path ultrasonic transit-time flowmeter systems for large pipes and open-channel applications, Accusonic has a wealth of experience and technical expertise in the use and appropriate deployment of this technology for high-accuracy flowrate measurement. This includes hydroelectric, water transmission, and wastewater flow monitoring, including water and wastewater treatment plants.

“As we further get into specific sections of your recent publication, we may well be sending you specific comments and discussion points that may provide useful information for your review and input to future editions.
