In-Line Process Viscometer

Process Viscometer for direct process control. In-line and continuous viscosity monitoring.
Process Viscometer for direct process control. In-line and continuous viscosity monitoring.

This in-line viscometer measures the viscosity and temperature of quiescent and flowing liquids as well, at pressures up to 350 bar (5,000 psi). It is very suitable for all kinds of process control, also under ATEX conditions.

The instrument has a standard 1"-thread measuring head. Alternative threaded sensor types, flange fitting sensor types and of course sensor geometries according to your requirements are available.

Further characteristics:

  • Measurement of the pure dynamic viscosity [mPas, cP], kinematic viscosity [cSt] is calculated simultaneously
  • No moving parts, very robust
  • Self-cleansing effect
  • Stand-alone process control with integrated controller
  • Easy process integration by diverse digital and analog interfaces

Technical Properties:

  • Viscosity range: 0.1 to 500,000 mPas (depending on measuring head), extended measuring range available, kinematic viscosity is calculated automatically
  • Accuracy and Reproducibility: ≤ 1% typ. (for viscosities > 10 mPas)
  • Fast measuring rate: one data point every 3 sec
  • Pressure range: up to 350 bar (5,000 psi)
  • Same measurement principle can be used in the lab and in-line
  • No moving parts: No wear
  • Very easy to clean and handle. Does not require special training
  • Small sensor dimensions give a high degree of installation flexibility
  • Type of flow (laminar/turbulent/none) does not disturb the results
  • Minimum cost for maintenance and service
  • Sensor is highly resistant to contamination and sedimentation
  • Process installation very easy due to different analog and digital interfaces including a controller output
  • Ex-proof version of this viscometer available
