Acid and Caustics Production
Flow and Concentration Measurement of Aggressive Media
Sulfuric, nitric, hydrochloric, hydrofluoric and other acids as well as caustics are often used as base chemicals for the production of a diverse range of intermediates, fertilizers, polymers and other specialty chemicals. Wetted measurement technologies are always affected by the problem of corrosion due to the aggressive media and are prone to subsequent failure and possible pipe leakage. FLUXUS is mounted on the outside of the pipe wall and thus overcomes such issues and not only provides the plant operator with precise and reliable mass flow rates but is especially maintenance-free. The PIOX ultrasonic process analyzers can be used to simultaneously measure acid or caustic strength and also act as a means for online quality control.
