Liquid density meter for corrosive environments
New Zirconium fork meter extends high accuracy liquid density and concentration measurements to corrosive acids and alkalis.
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
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
