Sensor for measuring the viscosity of liquids
VLO-M1 viscosity and density sensor for liquids
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. Application examples:
- Optimization of process reliability in applications where a certain viscosity is required. For example, engine oils on calibration systems.
- To supplement the density values to ensure the quality of lubricants or fuels.
VLO-M2_ex viscosity and density sensor for liquids
The VLO-M2_ex sensor for use in hazardous areas according to ATEX: II1G and IECEx: Zone 0 measures the density and viscosity 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
Thanks to measurement in the MEMS system, the sensor is only 30 x 83 x 15 mm in size and can be accommodated even in tight spaces. The high-precision measurement results are immediately available, allowing continuous measurement during the process.
