The Metal Industry & Sensotech

The metal industry offers its own set of challenges.  Sensotech has the know-how and solutions. 

The Applications

The analyzer LiquiSonic® has many applications in the metal industry:

  • concentration measurement in pickling baths
  • concentration measurement of rolling and cutting oil emulsions
  • acid regeneration
  • electrolytic galvanizing
  • roller chrome plating

SensoTech analyzers are ideal instruments for the rugged process conditions encountered in the metal and mining industries. The sensors allow precise control and accurate measurements, despite extreme temperatures, pressure and other harsh environments.

 

Unbeatable Utilization Rates

Where accuracy is critical, or where high pressure, high temperatures or sensitive processing environments make sampling impractical or impossible, SensoTech analyzers are ideal for monitoring inline processes.

LiquiSonic® sensors are engineered for tough industrial processes including Class I Division 1 Hazardous Area installations.

A rugged housing is crucial for protection and high mechanical stability, especially needed in the metal industry. Depending on the sensor type, our housings are able to withstand temperatures up to 200 °C or 392 °F, rated pressures up to 500 bar or 7,250 psi and are resistant to lye, acids and solvents. LiquiSonic allows you to automate manual operations and achieve a new level of productivity and process control.

The fundamentals for this quality are the high-grade materials used such as stainless steel, PTFE and PFA, alloy steels or tantalum. The sensor design consists of one homogenous body and requires no gaskets.

 

Well Connected
Our sensors may be equipped with all common process adapters and fittings and can be used under the most complex application conditions that the metal industry offers.

By changing immersion lengths or process adapters, our sensors fit into tanks and vessels of almost every design as well as directly in any size tube.

Because the measuring technology is not dependent on color, turbidity or other optical attributes, the user will have no limitations, even under the most challenging application conditions.

Products and Process may change
Every LiquiSonic® system can be easily adapted as various process conditions are modified. The Controller software manages up to 256 various product characteristics. Depending on the user access rights, these characteristics may be activated after the sensor is replaced or after the process conditions change.

This concept ensures the return of your investment and decreases your response time on changing boundary conditions. For new applications, you can create a new calculation model using process reference values together with our highly sophisticated SonicWork software.

Individual Interfaces
SensoTech is able to offer all current and emerging standards of signal processing. For continuous concentration and density measurement, 4-20 mA in 2-wire loop power (or 4-wire technology), Profibus PA or Foundation Fieldbus are available. For alarm level detection and switching a non-contact output or a relay can be configured. SensoTech analyzers can always conform to your installation needs.
