Ultrasonic level transmitters used in dry bulk solids level monitoring are starting to be eclipsed. Radar technology is now so good that it can get a signal and level or distance off of very unreflective media such as polypropylene pellets. Compared to ultrasonics, radar is often more reliable, easier to use, and has lower maintenance requirements. Check out this video from Swanson Flo highlighting the Schneider Electric LR64 and LR65 radar level transmitters.
Mass Flow Measurement of low flow rates, independent of fluid properties.
With the development of the mini CORI-FLOW™ series Bronkhorst achieved a technological breakthrough in Coriolis mass flow measurements and control, by realizing a compact, cost-effective Coriolis Mass Flow Meter/Controller for accurate measurement and control of (very) low flow rates. The unique design of the miniature Coriolis sensor features unsurpassed performance, even with changing operating conditions in pressure, temperature, density, conductivity and viscosity.
Contrary to many other Coriolis flow meters on the market, mini CORI-FLOW™ offers integrated PID control and close-coupled control valves or pumps, thus constituting very compact, cost- and space-saving, precise Coriolis Mass Flow Controllers.
