The development of the ultrasonic damping plate by KÖTTER Consulting Engineers is based on the already existing patent of the pulsation damping plate according to the KÖTTER principle.
It is proven that vibrations, pulsations and contamination have an influence on the flow meters in pipelines. In the case of large gas measurements, medium to large differences in gas volumes during storage and discharge were discovered repeatedly. This also led to conflicts between business partners, the buyers and sellers. Especially with ultrasonic gas volume measuring devices, problems occurred frequently in the past.
This was reason enough for us to conduct our own research. In order to prevent these negative influences and to enhance the reliability of measurements, to avoid malfunctions of the ultrasonic gas flow meters and even failures, the ultrasonic damping plate was developed and successfully installed for the first time in 2004.
