  • 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. […]

  • Turbulent non-Newtonian liquid flow
    Improving color dosing for liquid detergents using Coriolis mass flow meters

    Improving color dosing for liquid detergents using Coriolis mass flow meters Why is some laundry detergent blue? Many household liquid laundry detergents are easily recognized by their distinct blue color (sometimes also green or purple). Besides playing an important role in brand recognition and customer appeal, these colored dyes also serve a more functional purpose. […]

  • Turbulent non-Newtonian liquid flow
    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 […]

    Hydrogen fuel cell regulation and testing solutions

    Hydrogen fuel cell regulation and testing solutions Hydrogen fuel cells are a clean, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional combustion processes. While they show tremendous promise, fuel cell regulation is critical to achieve the process efficiency required for them to become truly viable as an alternative energy source. Precise and adaptive regulation of system pressures and […]

    Optimizing supercritical CO2 solid-liquid extraction with Coriolis mass flow

    Optimizing supercritical CO2 solid-liquid extraction with Coriolis mass flow CO2 is used in all kinds of industrial applications; for example, liquid CO2 is commonly used as a cooling agent and solid CO2 (dry ice) as a dairy preservative. Here, we focus on the industrial applications of supercritical CO2 (sCO2). What is sCO2? A supercritical fluid […]

  • Measuring vent and greenhouse gas emissions

    Portable gas flow meters are use multiple flow sensors to capture pressure, temperature, and flow data quickly at the source.

    Calibrating and verifying ventilators used to treat COVID-19 patients

    Calibrating and verifying ventilators used to treat COVID-19 patients The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in unprecedented challenges for modern medicine. Procuring and manufacturing the medical supplies needed for hospital staff to support the critically ill while protecting themselves from the disease has become a priority for governments everywhere. To meet growing demand, companies that manufacture […]

  • Calibrating in-field PM air samplers with the FP-25

    Calibrating in-field PM air samplers with the FP-25 Flow measurement is critical to air monitoring processes, and quality data requires consistent airflow with minimal fluctuations. This is easy to achieve inside a lab where temperature, air pressure, and humidity are all carefully controlled. Of course, most environmental air monitoring takes place outside, where the instruments […]
