Concentration Measurement through Ultrasound
What FLUXUS® is capable of, PIOX® S is more than up to!
The concentration determination (as well as density, yield rate and other parameters) by ultrasound is based upon the fact, that the sonic velocity, as a substance-specific value, stands in a distinct relation to the concentration of the respective mixture of substances.
Due to the non-intrusiveness, there is no direct media contact, which is why PIOX S® is especially suitable for the process control of aggressive, corrosive or ultra pure media. Leaks are impossible and PIOX S® assures its high reliability even in demanding environments.
As PIOX S® also very accurately determines the volumetric flow rate, the system is also capable of calculating the mass flow rate when incorporating the measured density of the medium.
Concentration Analysis by Process Refractometry
Refractometry - in other words, the measurement of light refraction - has proven itself as a method of choice for determining the concentration, density and purity of liquids in the laboratory time and time again.
FLEXIM moves the Refractometry out of the laboratory into the process, so that the advantages of this method, such as:
Speed, high accuracy, reliability and independence from color, turbidity as well as gas bubbles,
can be used during online-measurements of various media mixtures.
Transferring laboratory technology into the process involves special challenges concerning material and construction. FLEXIM faces these challenges with the transmitted light principle - the determination of the refractive index directly within the volume flow. The method is thus especially reliable during process conditions with dynamic temperature and pressure changes and is further not affected by deposits.
Process analysis with PIOX R ensures many advantages:
Continous quality management, process optimization, resources savings and a higher operating reliability.
