OPTIMASS 7000 Tantalum Coriolis Meter

Product Announcement from KROHNE Messtechnik

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").
