21st century viscometer is a hydrocarbon workhorse

Apr 12 2019

Reliable and rapid in-line viscosity measurement has become a vital tool for continuous product control. Continuous monitoring provides instant feedback of fluid changes allowing real-time optimisation of the process. This drives up productivity and quality, eliminates waste and removes the need for laboratory testing with its reliance on sampling.

Viscometers have traditionally relied on a captive volume of fluid. Such designs do not migrate well to the in-line setting with its punishing conditions and fluid aggression, so the technology had to change.

Hydramotion are pioneers in modern resonator design which overcomes the limitations of traditional methods and other vibrational probes.  Their devices are ‘surface loaded’ with all the action taking place at the sensor. This means they are not affected by pipe or tank size, flow, process conditions or any other factors limiting other techniques. They are highly sensitive yet extremely strong so no guards are required to ‘protect’ the sensor.

The Ex-certified XL7 process viscometer is a hydrocarbon workhorse. With high accuracy, unrivalled robustness and virtually no need for maintenance, it is trusted worldwide as the definitive viscosity solution and is seen as an attractive and affordable option for all applications.
