The globally proven KOBOLD DUK series line has been expanded with the inclusion of our new revolutionary C3T0 electronic. This exceptional new model includes integral temperature measurement, IO-Link, bi-directional flow capabilities, switching and batching and transmitting functions, two configurable outputs, and a digital touch screen that rotates the display in 90 increments depending on the installation position.
Another notable difference is that it can now process moderately viscous media up to 68 cSt. Specific media and media combinations can be specified within the instrument via a software upload. It is also designed with the future in mind as the electronics are now specifically designed for easy onsite repair and replacement. This new development launches an already versatile flow meter into a wide variety of new markets and applications and positions it uniquely within the market in both capability and pricing.
As the KOBOLD DUK inline ultrasonic flow meter does not require conductive media to operate, it is an ideal candidate for applications requiring an inline installation and where the media is not sufficiently conductive enough for a magnetic flow meter. Like magnetic flow meters, the DUK features a principle of measurement that does not require moving parts or any mechanical elements for flow rate measurement, delivering a long service life, minimal maintenance, and high accuracy.
The DUK offers an exceptionally high turndown ratio in comparison to other options in the market. This makes it uniquely suited for applications where the process variables produce a widely fluctuating flow rate as many flow meters are not capable of providing consistent and reliable high accuracies across a wide range of flow rates.
DUK Ultrasonic Flow Meters operate by the principle of run-time or transit time difference. Ultrasonic waves in the media are influenced by the rate of flow. It features two sensors mounted opposite one another in the pipeline, which function simultaneously as transmitter and receiver of ultrasonic signals. If no flow is present, the run-times of both signals are identical. If the media is flowing, the run-time of the signal against the flow will be longer than the signal with the flow. This run-time difference, determined by the DUK’s microprocessor, is proportional to the flow rate.

KOBOLD also offers the DUC Clamp-on Ultrasonic Flow Meter which delivers a clear cost advantage for flow measurement in large process pipe diameters.

We are the industrial instrumentation partner of choice with comprehensive solutions for measuring what matters to you.
For over 40 years, KOBOLD has been a value-driven leader in process measurement and control solutions. We offer one of the industry’s broadest lines of sensors, switches, and transmitters to measure and control flow, pressure, level, and temperature.
We offer excellence in engineering, high value products, and exceptional customer partnerships that last beyond the sale. Because we design, manufacture, sell, and provide support for our products, you can be assured that you and your application are in expert hands.
We aren’t just interested in selling you instrumentation. You are our priority. Trying to wade through the extensive technologies and options can be a bit intimidating. You don’t have to figure it out on your own. We are here to partner with you, providing free advice from our in-house engineering experts who have decades of collective experience.
We are old-fashion in our beliefs about what doing business should look like. We still have someone answering our phone who will quickly direct you to the right person. We still believe in delivering true value and not subpar quick-fix products that become headaches down the road. We build our products like we build our relationships, for the "long haul".
For certain large-scale projects, we are also able to provide demo instrumentation so you can be confident that our solution is the right fit for your application. We want our products to be the best fit as much as you do. There is no project too large or too small for us.
We believe that "Made in the USA" still means something. Our products are built with that in mind as we aim to exceed the standards and ideals of quality-focused US manufacturing. We offer the best of both worlds. German engineering is still known as being among the finest and we are proud to build some of the most innovative products in the world. We are also focused on sourcing practices that allow us to provide higher quality components, shorter lead times, and longer lasting products than other instrumentation manufacturers.
We offer one of the industry’s broadest lines of sensors, switches, and transmitters to measure and control flow, pressure, level, and temperature.
We have historically set the bar for innovation and excellence, helping to shape the field of industrial instrumentation into what it is today. Our technologies offer a solution-oriented way to control the most diverse and complex variables and can be easily integrated into a wide variety of systems in many industrial and commerical sectors.
We will not try to sell you any instrumentation that isn’t ideally suited for your application. Because we are unique in the extensiveness of our product line, we don’t have to try and “force a fit” just to make a sale like other companies with limited product lines. In the event we do not have the right solution, we will do our best to point you in the right direction.
While we offer a wide variety of standard instrumentation, we are also able to handle unique, difficult, or challenging applications that others can not. Our familiarity with exotic materials allows us to offer solutions for variables that are frequently hard to accommodate. Because we are the manufacturer, we also have the flexibility of being able to provide customized solutions in certain circumstances, based on the exact application needs.
