  • Oil lasts longer in diesels, thanks to novel viscosity sensor
    into the engine. The viscosity of the oil is measured as it flows across the head of the sensor. The detector spots changes in fluid viscosity as the engine runs, alerting operators before there is serious damage. Viscosity, the measure of a fluid's resistance to flow, is a key physical parameter
  • The sound of viscosity
    with a layer of liquid a few microns thick. Energy from the wave moves into the liquid where it dissipates. The amount of power lost from the wave is translated into a measure of viscosity. This cutaway view shows the quartz-crystal sensor along with the propagated waves of sound energy traveling through
  • Single In-line Sensor for Viscosity, Density, and Temperature
    Cambridge Viscosity Announces ViscoDense. The new ViscoDense (R) is a breakthrough 3-in-1 instrument providing instantaneous in-line measurement of viscosity, density, and temperature in one single device. This device capitalizes on Cambridge's patented driven-piston technology for measuring
  • Load Cell Application - Viscosity / Liquid Separation
    This particular application is used in batching or mixing of multiple chemicals. By measuring the viscosity, you can determine when to stop adding a liquid to the mix. As shown here, the table can be lifted so that the probe reaches the liquid in the tank. The probe can also be brought down
  • Measuring liquid levels with LVDTs
    remains constant, the measured pressure is directly proportional to the liquid level. This method works with all low-vapor-pressure, low-viscosity liquids and, of course, water. The difficulty lies in inserting the pressure sensor at the right location in the tank to make the measurement
  • Flow Sensors
    types of flowmeters are being introduced, and older designs are being improved and updated. Prime considerations when selecting a flow sensor include: the type of fluid being measured, its temperature and pressure, viscosity, conductivity, corrosiveness, and cleanliness. Equally important
  • A fan of fuel savings
    , says one SAE/DOT study. This inability of the fan to fully disengage can cause overcooling and may rob about 5% of engine power. Moreover, lowered coupler-fluid viscosity (from normal engine heating) delays clutch response which further degrades efficiency. On-off fan controls are another, more
