In-situ density measurements have long been useful in process control applications from recycling nuclear fuel and refining oil to measuring beverage proof or degrees Brix (°Bx) sugar content of an aqueous solution. Density measurements can provide real-time determinations of concentration, blending ratio, fermentation, or oil API (American Petroleum Institute) gravity, which measures oil heaviness or lightness, etc. These can be used to adjust process variables and optimize throughput, quality, equipment and material utilization, and energy efficiency. So it’s no surprise that densities of liquids, slurries and mixtures in vessels and pipes have been measured for…Full Story
As an alternative to battery power, wireless power transfer improves process control and can pay for itself through reduced variability and higher profitability.
