Quality monitoring of fuels
Sensors for this application
The DLO-M1 sensor measures the density of liquids in a microelectromechanical system (MEMS system). Within the MEMS system, the liquid is directed to an omega-shaped microchannel, the so-called omega chip. This tiny silicon tube – it is hardly thicker than a hair – is vibrated for the measurement. The density of the medium to be measured can be derived from the natural frequency of this oscillation.
Density sensor DLO-M2_ex for liquids
The DLO-M2_ex sensor for use in hazardous areas according to ATEX: II1G and IECEx: Zone 0 measures the density of liquids in a microelectromechanical system (MEMS system). Thanks to the measurement in the MEMS system, the sensor is only 30 x 83 x 15 mm³ small and can be installed even in tight spaces. The high-precision measurement results are immediately available, allowing continuous measurement during the running process.
Viscosity data can be used to determine the properties of liquids and monitor their quality. The sensor measures the viscosity in the running process – even in the smallest of spaces. Irrespective of the viscosity, the sensor also measures the density and temperature of the medium being measured.
