KROHNE OptimassKROHNE, Inc. now offers a Tantalum version of its OPTIMASS 7300 straight-tube Coriolis mass flowmeter. KROHNE says this is the first single straight-tube meter available with Tantalum wetted-flange material construction. The flowmeter is designed for use in the chemical industry to measure highly aggressive or corrosive fluids. The design of the mass flowmeter allows safe and reliable measurement of fluids that require glass-lined piping or glass-lined process vessels. Tantalum has similar chemical resistance as glass, and is typically used with chemicals such as Hydrochloric, Sulphuric, Nitric, and Phosphoric acids, or Bromine and Chlorine. The single straight-tube design is resistant to blocking or fouling, allowing the Coriolis mass flowmeter to handle high-viscosity fluids with ease, as well as maintaining a high level of accuracy, even in the presence of entrained air. Featuring KROHNE’s patented Adaptive Sensor Technology (AST), the Coriolis mass flowmeter intelligently “tunes” itself, independent of external forces and fluid density. It delivers accurate metering for a wide range of flowrates, in seven different full-bore tube diameters (1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 1”, 1 ½”, 2” and 3”). – www.us.krohne.com
