Our density measurement systems work completely contactless and maintenance-free. They provide accurate density and concentration readings of liquids such as acids, alkalis, solutions and suspensions.
The density measuring systems can also be retrofitted to the outside of existing pipelines with the help of a clamping device. The density measurement can be used on pipe diameters from 25 mm to 1000 mm on chutes or vessels.
Berthold's density measurement is radiometric and therefore ideally suited for use in extreme measurement environments, such as with abrasive, highly viscous or corrosive media, or even if there are vibrations. It is completely unaffected by the flow velocity of the medium.
Density measuring principle by Berthold!
The radiometric measurement of density is based on the Gamma transmission principle. Gamma radiation is attenuated as it passes through a pipeline. This attenuation is measured by a detector. The extent to which the radiation is attenuated is dependent on the density of the medium in the pipeline. The higher the density, the less radiation reaches the detector. In this way, density, concentration and solids content can be determined reliably in a non-contacting manner – regardless of pressure, temperature, viscosity, conductivity and chemical properties. This results in high reliability and low maintenance of the radiometric measuring systems, even under severe operating and environmental conditions.> LEARN MORE
