For food & beverage producers, managing the quality of each batch can be challenging when there are manual processes involved. For instance, if the raw materials are manually added, variations can cause batches to fall outside of the recipe’s specification. In a Processing magazine article, Monitoring recipe and batch quality in real-time with flowmeters, Emerson’s […]

Density and concentration measurements are important in many applications in industries such as food & beverage, life sciences, oil & gas and chemicals to name a few. A density meter performs this measurement. This educational 4-minute YouTube video, Compact Density Meter Overview describes how density, temperature and concentration are directly measured. It explains the calibration […]

We often discuss aspects of some of the basic measurements in process control—flow, temperature, pressure, level, etc. Some other very important measurements in applications such as custody transfer, liquid interface detection, blending, separating, evaporating and product change—are density and viscosity—due to the changing composition of hydrocarbon liquids. In a whitepaper, Application of Density Meters to […]

I received this question on density measurement and wanted to share what I found out. I understand all dP flow measurements are affected by the density of the fluid (liquid or gas) flowing through orifice, annubar, pitot tube, etc. Most dP measurements in process measurements make an assumption of the density of the fluid. I […]
