Industrial Automation New Generation of Sensors for Concentration Measurement
Anton Paar’s new sensors consist of instrumentation for density measurement, sound velocity measurement, and combined density and sound velocity measurement.
The sensors cover a wide range of applications in the petroleum, chemical, pharmaceutical, ethanol and beverage industries. Based on continuous concentration measurements, it is possible to significantly increase a plant’s productivity, optimize the consumption of raw materials and energy, and maximize production output. The new process density sensors measure the online density and the concentration of 2-component mixtures.
They are available in 3 types: the high-performance density sensor series L-Dens 7000 for demanding applications and the highest accuracy on the market, L-Dens 3300 for low flow rates and standard accuracy, and the OEM module L-Dens 2300 for integration into systems or instruments.
The company opines that its new sound velocity sensors enable accurate and robust concentration measurement of 2-component mixtures. It continuously monitors the product quality and product specifications during production. Customers benefit from stable measurement due to low thermal inertia and high tolerance to bubbles. L-Sonic is available in 2 types – a fork-type L-Sonic 5100 and a tube-type L-Sonic 6100.
The smart fusion of a new density sensor with a sound velocity module results in a combined instrument for a lean all-in-one solution – the new L-Com 5500. The sensor measures 3-component mixtures at the highest accuracy. The small sensor dimensions are unique in the market, claims the firm.
The company explains that together, the sensors stand for the highest measurement accuracy in the narrowest space, which ensures that they can measure at the most efficient places in plant installations. The modular sensor platform includes suitable materials, process connections, and electrical interfaces to contribute to a simple and cost-efficient integration.
The new process instrumentation controller Pico 3000 is also launched with the new sensor generation. Pico 3000 is a high-performance transmitter which makes the sensors of the new generation complete stand-alone solutions, states the company. Data management directly at the sensor is either possible via the Pico 3000 software and/or the optional high-quality display.
