PIOX® S - Ultrasonic Concentration Analyser
PIOX® S - Concentration, Density and Mass Flow Measurement by Ultrasound
The application areas of PIOX® S extend from concentration and density measurement within the chemical industry, over the Oil & Gas sector, where it monitors density, API number and specific gravity of hydrocarbon media (additionally offering a proper Fluid Identification and Interface Detection), up to the pharmaceutical and beverage industries, where it serves as a highly hygienic measuring method as it never gets in direct contact with the flowing media.
Combining the concentration and density measurement with the integrated volumetric flow measurement, the PIOX® S system is also capable of calculating the (concentration compensated) mass flow rate. PIOX® S is thus also an ideal alternative to Coriolis mass flow meters – especially in challenging conditions!
PIOX® S - Measurement Principle
A temperature probe, mounted in clamp-on or inline configuration, transmits the temperature measurement (T).
Based on the measured sonic velocity and temperature, PIOX® S calculates the desired units of measure, such as concentration, density, solid content, yield, as well as user and industry defined values such as Brix and others.
Moreover, by internally combining the values of the volume flow with the measured density of the liquid, the PIOX® S
Massflow is able to precisely determine the mass flow rate.
