    Aerating everything using mass flow instrumentation

    Aerating everything using mass flow instrumentation Aeration describes the process of infusing air or other gases into liquids. Aeration is an important step in various industries, including food and beverage manufacturing, fish farming, and wastewater and soil treatment. Aerating wastewater Aeration is an important step in secondary wastewater treatment. In the activated sludge process, water […]

    Regulating cold plasma flow and pressure

    Regulating cold plasma flow and pressure Plasma, the 4th state of matter, makes up a remarkable 99% of all mass in the universe, including stars and lightning. Cold plasma, sometimes called non-thermal plasma or non-equilibrium plasma, is a special type of plasma. While other molecular and atomic constituents remain near room temperature, cold plasma is […]

    Regulating SO2 levels in winemaking processes

    Regulating SO2 levels in winemaking processes SO2, sulfur dioxide, is a very important additive to the winemaking process because of its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Thus, it makes wine fresher, inhibits unwanted growth of bacteria and yeast, and improves wine’s storage length and shelf stability. This makes it important for wine manufacturers to use precise […]

    Characterization of Coriolis measurement technology

    Characterization of Coriolis measurement technology Coriolis technology can flow fluids ranging from only hundredths of a gram per hour up to several million kilograms per hour. On the low end, a Coriolis device may be so small that it can fit in the palm of your hand. At higher flows, they may be as large […]

    Frost Methane mitigates methane gas emissions from Arctic Circle permafrost

    Frost Methane mitigates methane gas emissions from Arctic Circle permafrost Methane, representing about 10% of greenhouse gas emissions, comes from one of two sources: diffuse or point. Diffuse emissions come from large, non-point sources such as livestock. As the name implies, point emissions can be traced to a specific source such as smokestacks, oil refineries, […]

    Nel Hydrogen switches to mass flow meters for more accurate flow verification on high-tech PEM electrolysers

    Nel Hydrogen switches to mass flow meters for more accurate flow verification on high-tech PEM electrolysers Hydrogen, the most abundant, energy-dense element in our universe, is a highly desirable energy source. Unfortunately, most hydrogen production utilizes natural gas and releases harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. In an effort to improve the sustainability of hydrogen, […]

    UPB tests hydrogen-diesel engine efficiency using mass flow meters

    UPB tests hydrogen-diesel engine efficiency using mass flow meters In an effort to reduce carbon emissions from the transportation sector, the European Commission is working to reduce CO2 emissions from transportation by 37.5% over the next 10 years. A promising approach is to focus on developing alternative fuels and technologies to replace greenhouse intensive ones. […]

    High accuracy, low-flow color dosing with Coriolis mass flow meters

    High accuracy, low-flow color dosing with Coriolis mass flow meters Many liquid laundry detergents are easily recognized by their distinct blue color. The addition of such blue coloring and other fluorescing agents adds trace amounts of dye to fabrics, both counteracting discoloration and improving brightness. Challenge: Inaccurate, inefficient pumps lead to noticeable variation Modern blue […]

    Framergy purifies methane from natural gas streams using MOFs and Coriolis mass flow meters

    Framergy purifies methane from natural gas streams using MOFs and Coriolis mass flow meters Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are a novel class of nanomaterials which are highly effective as a solid adsorbent and utilize their unique “cage-like” structure to trap molecules. Because of these properties, MOFs have been studied for numerous fluid storage, separation, and […]

    Flowing non-Newtonian fluids

    Flowing non-Newtonian fluids Finding the right instrument to measure or control non-Newtonian fluids can be a challenge. Some popular flow technologies like electromagnetic meters can exhibit up to a 20% deviation in accuracy when used for such fluids. Ultrasonic flow meters have also shown up to 15% deviation when used for non-Newtonian fluids transitioning between […]
