The only instrument capable of determining the pressure required to drive fluids at a specified flow speed

Software on robust 7” electronic tablet giving the world’s first capability in calculating pressure required to pump a liquid along a pipe that is travelling at the flow speed measured by the Portasonic®

For Portasonic® Customers

The perfect product to save your flow and pressure results for better reporting. Combine calculated pressure with readings from the Portasonic® 2.FL0 to verify measured flow
speeds and rates against a fixed pressure gauge in the system.


Works on 23 different common pipe materials:
ABS, aluminium, asbestos, carbon steel, cast iron,cement, copper, ductile iron, epoxy, fibre glass, glass, GRP, lead, nylon, PE, PP, PTFE, PVC, rubber, stainless 403, stainless 316, steel, Teflon

    • Calculate quickly and easily using an intuitive touchscreen tablet
    • Save data to records and export via USB or email to ensure traceability
    • Accounts for temperature and material roughness to produce results of the highest empirical
    • Save the results from your Portasonic® 2.FL0; record and download inspection reports. Filter records by date or by pipe
    • Facilitate determination of the
      expected wear and tear on the system
      caused by pressure
    • Facilitate risk assessment of high
      pressure systems



Portasonic CALCULATOR uses an empirical equation that closely models the fluid dynamics in a pipe system using real-life industry data. The calculated pressure is accurate to within ±5% excepting the following caveats:

  • This accuracy is for clean pipes, free of internal corrosion and residue build-up.
  • It is also valid for temperatures between 10°C and 30°C.
  • Temperatures outside of these bounds will, for the most part, still yield results
    of similar accuracy, but these are as yet unverified.
  • Some graded liquids are listed under a general name, for example, crude oil.
  • These take median values for the liquid properties, which will not necessarily be
    accurate for all grades.
  • Manufacturer Disclaimer: the software is designed under COVID-19 conditions

The pressure in a pipe system must be closely monitored to ensure it does not exceed safe tolerances. Critically high pressures can lead to pipe failure, damage to property, and risk to personnel. The durability and safe functioning of pipes, pumps, and related equipment are also affected by pressure. Knowledge of the pressure in a pipe system is therefore important for ensuring that the flow is occurring as expected, in a safe and sustainable manner.

  • Portasonic® CALCULATOR is a non-invasive alternative to pressure gauges, which may require costly installation in difficult-to-reach places.
  • It is, therefore, the only way of quantifying the pressure in any system where the flow speed is known, but there is no apparatus installed for pressure measurement.
  • It can be used with all of your pipes to store records, thereby creating a centralised database of all past tests – perfect for ensuring reliable, traceable reporting.
