Covered in the brief time would be a summary of what ultrasonics are and how they function, followed by the typical applications of ultrasonics meters and applications to avoid.

Ultrasonics meters are used when very large turndowns are expected. When the flow can be near zero and many order of magnitude need to be covered. This would require multiple stacked transmitters or flow meters to cover this range using other metering options, and still have a consistent and worthwhile accuracy.

Ultrasonic meters are not perfect and some applications such as multiphase, steam or varying quality, fluid of variable viscosity can be difficult to measure. This could be true with other meter options as well.

A brief discussion of other meter option applicability can also be included, time permitting, and if the viewership is agreeable.
