Fraunhofer researchers have created a fluidic energy transducer that creates electricity from fluid motion in the surrounding air or water, enabling the development of self-powered sensors for air or fluid systems.
SolidFlow can be used to measure lean phase mass flow of bulk solids up to 20 t/h, either in free fall or pneumatically conveyed. It uses a microwave technique.
The ITP is an intelligent printing totaliser intended primarily for liquid flow measurement.
Although differential pressure (DP) flowmeters are based on a relatively inexpensive and mature technology, selecting and installing these devices is not simple and requires a reasonable level of engineering skill.
The HygienicMaster range of flowmeters is targeted primarily at the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. The range provides accurate measurement in hygienic applications ranging from water through to fluids with extreme viscosities, high solid concentrations or low conductivity.
The DMI series flowmeter operates on the magneto-inductive principle. With no protrusions into the pipe, conductive liquids and slurries can be measured with virtually no system pressure loss. The DMI is available with a PEEK or PVDF flow tube and Hastelloy C measuring electrodes are standard.
Part of ABB’s FlowMaster family, ProcessMaster incorporates features providing users enhanced performance with reduced complexity. Available in sizes 3 to 2000 mm, the ProcessMaster range offers a wide choice of liner and electrode options, enabling it to meet the needs of demanding applications.
The PFM range of flowmeters is for use with air and a variety of gases. With flow measurement of air, liquids, even harsh acids and alkalis, the SMC range of flow measurement equipment can provide in situ displays, remote indicators, analog transmission and digital switching. Some models are equipped with flow adjustment to permit the required flowrate to be preset.
FlowJam is a non-contact flow/no flow sensor for solids. It uses microwave technology to give reliable results under harsh conditions of dust and sunlight. It is a suitable device for detecting solid flows in hoppers, conveyors, screw conveyors, air slides, etc.
Swagelok variable area flowmeters (VAFs) are used to measure liquid and gas flow rates by means of a tapered tube and float and can provide highly accurate measurement with individually calibrated scales and a 10:1 turndown ratio.
The Schmidt flow sensor SS 20.260 offers a measuring range of 0-50 m/s and an operating temperature range of up to 120°C. The temperature can be measured with an additional linear output, and a separate temperature sensor is not required. The unit has a robust construction to protect it against impact.
Building a greenfield process plant today inevitably throws up a host of challenges, but successful greenfield projects take advantage of a potent ingredient in the engineering chain: added value.
The type MIK flowmeters offer four measuring tube widths from G 1/4 AG to G 1 AG and thus four measuring ranges from 0.5-4 to 10-100 L/min. These devices use the magnetic-inductive principle of measurement and are suitable for many applications like the monitoring of additives or cooling agents, consumption measurement or charging.
FCI’s ST51 flowmeter is designed to measure digester gas, biogas and other methane-composition biofuel gases as well as natural gas. FCI precision calibrates all ST51 flowmeters in its NIST-traceable flow lab to match the gas composition of the user’s digester system and under the specific flow conditions of the user’s digester system.
Magnetic flowmeters are commonly used for the metering of liquids. They are easily installed, non-intrusive and easy to calibrate. DensFlow is a magnetic flowmeter for solids. It is easily installed, non-intrusive and easy to calibrate.
