Viscosity Sensor 374: Online Viscometer
Flow-through sanitary connection viscometer for process applications
The online viscometer, Sensor 374, is a flow-through viscosity sensor that is installed in process fluid lines to provide continuous temperature and viscosity tracking. The online viscometer 374 installs directly into a 1/2 inch process line using standard sanitary tubing connections. The sensor requires less than 5mL of sample to accurately determine the viscosity of a solution. This online viscometer also has an integrated heater for tight temperature control. Samples can be measured in flow conditions up to 1 ft/sec.
Measurements can be made in 13 different viscosity ranges within an overall span of 0.2 to 20,000 cP. This sensor allows for readings to also be displayed in cSt.
Our technology is based on a simple and reliable electromagnetic concept. Two coils move a piston back and forth magnetically at a constant force. A proprietary circuitry analyzes the pistons two-way travel time to measure absolute viscosity.
A deflector, positioned over the piston, moves fluid into the measurement chamber. This feature, coupled with the constant piston motion, keeps the sample fresh and mechanically scrubs the chamber. A built-in temperature detector (RTD) senses the temperature of the measurement chamber.
