Process monitoring where space is at a premium

By Chemical Engineering |


The LiquiSonic Lab 3-in-1-sensor (photo) is designed for reactors and small plants in laboratories and technology centers. Directly flanged into the reactor lid, the device monitors sonic velocity, attenuation and temperature with high precision. LiquiSonic sensors can be used for monitoring complex polymerization or crystallization reactions. Harsh conditions, such as high temperature (160°C) or pressure (16 bars), can also be handled. Process kinetics can be monitored inline and even under extreme process conditions in pressurized miniplants or pilot reactors. Space-saving design, separated sensor electronics and a user-friendly, multilingual controller with powerful data memory characterize the LiquiSonic system. Sensor materials include Hastelloy HC2000, tantalum or titanium to protect against corrosion and promote long process life. — SensoTech GmbH, Magdeburg–Barleben, Germany
