Emerson Process Management has released the Micro Motion Fork Viscosity Meter, the next generation of the Micro Motion 7827 and 7829 direct insertion viscosity and density meters. Incorporating the same rugged and reliable tuning fork design as its predecessors, the Fork Viscosity Meter is built to tackle demanding process applications such as oil fired heater combustion control, HFO blending/production and pump protection.

In applications where accurate, fast-response viscosity and density monitoring is required, the direct insertion Micro Motion Fork Viscosity Meter is the ideal choice. The meter helps solve problems customers face on a daily basis, such as reducing oil fired heater combustion emissions, minimizing cutter-stock usage in HFO blending and reducing contamination risks on multi-product pipelines.

The Fork Viscosity Meter incorporates a hazardous area approved head-mounted transmitter that has the flexibility to connect to control systems via a wide range of digital and analog protocols. Because it supports FOUNDATION fieldbus, 4-20mA, HART, WirelessHART, and RS485 Modbus, system integration and start up/commissioning costs are significantly reduced.
