    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 […]
