Presentation of the LiquiSonic® measuring technology at DuPont's Sulfuric Acid Safety Seminar | April 15, 2015 SensoTech is invited to exhibit Measuring the concentration of sulfuric acid and oleum is an important process parameter to ensure safety, product quality and production efficiency. Therefore, the international chemical company DuPont uses SensoTech’s LiquiSonic® analytical measuring technology. SensoTech, Germany, with a branch in the U.S., is the leading supplier of sonic velocity meters for measuring concentrations in process liquids. Compared to other measuring methods, the LiquiSonic® technology provides best results in sulfuric acid and oleum. SensoTech is pleased to be invited by DuPont to exhibit at the DuPont Sulfuric Acid Safety Seminar on May 12th, 2015, in Wilmington, Delaware, USA. The exhibitors include only a select number of vendors of the approved vendor list. At the seminar, SensoTech will present the LiquiSonic® analyzers, that are used for high-precision concentration measurement in production of sulfuric acid, oleum and fertilizers, synthesis gas drying, ore processing in mining or etching and pickling baths. Sonic velocity, as physical value, offers high measuring accuracy of ± 0.03 m%, low maintenance and extremely robustness. The sensors can be integrated directly into pipes or containers without bypass. The measuring results are stable, updated every second and provided online to the process control system.
Process analytical technology for concentration measurement, phase separation and reaction monitoring | April 1, 2015 ACHEMA, booth F75, hall 11.1 LiquiSonic® technology for analyzing liquids In industrial processes, inline analytical technology is used to monitor critical parameters and to control processes for quality assurance, production efficiency and safety. This increases process reliability, reduces costs of raw material and energy, and eliminates failed productions. With the LiquiSonic® analytical technology of SensoTech, parameters such as the concentration in process liquids can be monitored. The analyzer is used in almost any liquids of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, food production, semiconductor technology, metal production and many more industries. For example, in the chemical industry the LiquiSonic® sensors measure the concentration of sulfuric acid, ammonia, hydrofluoric acid and more chemicals. In the chlor-alkali electrolysis, the analyzer monitors sodium hydroxide, sodium chloride, hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid. Also in gas scrubbers, phase separations, neutralizations, dissolvings or blendings, the LiquiSonic® sensors are integrated into the process. In addition, the analyzer monitors complex reactions such as crystallizations or polymerizations. In crystallizations, critical parameters include the saturation degree, the crystal content or the metastable range, whereas in polymerizations the analysis of the polymerization degree is important. The LiquiSonic® technology is based on sonic velocity measurement that provides high-precision and stable measuring results being updated every second. Compared to other measuring methods, sonic velocity devices are extremely robust and maintenance-free, corrosion-resistant by using special materials, and integrable into the process without bypass. LiquiSonic® sensors, made in Germany, are installed directly into pipes of any size or into vessels. The measurment is continuously inline and the results are provided online. The LiquiSonic® controller displays and stores the results. The trend view shows the process status at any time. If the measuring result exceed or fall below thresholds, a signal will be sent immediately. For automated process control, the measuring results can be transferred to the process control system. Via a PC-interface, it is possible to read all data and to create reports and protocols. LiquiSonic® analyzer for liquid concentration measurement The LiquiSonic® inline analyzer of SensoTech measures continuously and precisely the concentration in liquids directly in vessels and pipes without needing a bypass. Applications include, for example, the production of chemicals and pharmaceuticals, the chlor-alkali electrolysis, gas scrubbers, phase separations, crystallizations or polymerizations. The sensors can be integrated into any plant system and various sizes of pipes and vessels. The LiquiSonic® technology is based on sonic velocity measurement providing high measuring accuracy and the advantage of robust and maintenance-free sensors. The measuring results will be updated every second and can be sent online to PCs and process control system. SensoTech: For 25 years SensoTech has been focused on the development, manufacturing and sales of inline analysis systems for process liquids. With worldwide installed, highly precise and innovative measuring systems for monitoring of concentrations, compositions and changes of chemicals as well as properties directly in the process, SensoTech has significantly contributed to the enhancement of the state of the art. In addition to the measurement of concentration and density, the phase interface detection as well as the monitoring of chemical reactions like polymerization and crystallization are typical applications. SensoTech inline analyzers set standards in the technological and qualitative valence, user friendliness and reproducibility of process values. Special calculation methods and sophisticated sensor technologies enable reliable and precise measuring results even under the most difficult process conditions. The knowledge and the experiences of the highly motivated and committed SensoTech staff are the result of many different applications supported by well-known customers from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, food technology, semiconductor technology, automotive and metal industry as well as many other industries. In addition, these experiences also open up unimagined solution possibilities for new measuring challenges.
