Product Announcement from KROHNE, Inc.
New Tantalum Sensor Added to KROHNE's OPTIMASS Product Range
Unique Tantalum Design Provides Superior Performance in Highly Corrosive Applications,
Eliminates Special Installation Requirements
KROHNE, Inc., a global technology leader in the development, manufacture and distribution
of accurate, reliable and cost effective level and flow measurement products for the process
industries, introduces Tantalum to its single straight tube Coriolis mass flowmeter
OPTIMASS Series 7000 product range. The first single straight tube meter available with
Tantalum wetted-flange material construction, it is well-suited for the chemical industry and
able to measure highly aggressive or corrosive fluids, with no-hassle installation and
superior performance in density and mass flow.
Previously only available on dual bent tube sensor designs, the Tantalum OPTIMASS
7000's design makes it a more affordable and ideal solution for the 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 corrosion-resistant Tantalum OPTIMASS Series 7000 is the first of its kind to contain
Tantalum wetted material construction, allowing it to withstand the harshest fluids. The
single straight-tube design is resistant to blocking or fouling, allowing the meter to handle
high viscosity fluids with ease, while maintaining a high level of accuracy. The single
straight tube also minimizes pressure loss.
Featuring KROHNE's patented Adaptive Sensor Technology (AST), the OPTIMASS 7000
Series intelligently "tunes" itself, independent of external forces and fluid density, to produce
an inherently balanced meter in the most demanding processes. It delivers accurate
metering for a wide range of flow rates, in four different full-bore tube diameters (1/2", 1",
1 ½", and 2").
