Liquid density meter for corrosive environments

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

September 28, 2009

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 (
