The state of the art of ultrasonic liquid flow measurement has improved greatly in the past decade to where this technology exhibits accuracy equivalent to turbine meter systems, while retaining several advantages over turbine meters.

Testing of a four path non-intrusive meter used for leak detection on the Trans–Alaska Pipeline is discussed. Performance is detailed, and future applications for ultrasonic flow measurement technology are reviewed.
