Liquid density meter for corrosive environments

New Zirconium fork meter extends high accuracy liquid density and concentration measurements to corrosive acids and alkalis.


Emerson Micro Motion 7826 meter
The Micro Motion 7826 insertion liquid density and concentration

meter is now offered in Zirconium for enhanced corrosion resistance. The new

Zirconium fork meter is designed to monitor inorganic chemicals such as

hydrochloric, nitric and sulfuric acid. The meter is ideal for applications in

the chemical and oil & gas industries, as well as clean in place (CIP)

processes in the food and beverage sector.

The meter uses a vibrating fork to measure density and

concentration and is designed for continuous, real-time measurement and control

in pipelines, bypass loops and tanks. The Zirconium fork liquid density meter

has the same form, fit and function of the existing fork density meter,

offering an integral mount transmitter with two mA outputs and Modbus/RS-485

communications. Approvals for the meter include ATEX and CSA / C-US.

The meter can be used in process control where density or

concentration is the primary control parameter for the end product, or as an

indicator of some other quality control parameter such as % solids. Constructed

to meet the most demanding process applications, it is a rugged and reliable

direct insertion meter that requires very little maintenance; is insensitive to

vibration, temperature and pressure variations; and provides high accuracy

density and concentration measurement (

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
