Managing high pressures and temperatures as well as sticky media
Ethylene and propylene are abundant gaseous feedstocks for the most common base polymers. During the polymerisation process, gases are highly compressed and heated. Inline meter technologies are prone to heavy wear and often cause high pressure drops - leading to high operational cost and frequent plant shutdowns due to maintenance and replacement.
FLUXUS flow meters for polymer production measure from outside the pipe wall, independent of the pressure and temperature inside. Also, the highly viscous polymer streams formed in the process can be accurately measured whilst avoiding the unnecessary risk of line clogging.
