Emerson Process Management has released the Micro Motion Fork Density Meter, the next generation of the Micro Motion 7826 and 7828 direct insertion density meters. Incorporating the same rugged and reliable tuning fork design as its predecessors, the Fork Density Meter is built to tackle demanding process applications such as pipeline interface detection, mineral slurry solids monitoring and corrosive acid concentration control.
The direct insertion meter allows to reduce product give-away, minimise cross-contamination on multi-product pipelines and endure operator safety when sampling hazardous liquids. It is designed for applications where fast-response density and concentration monitoring is required, even when the installation footprint is limited.
The Fork Density Meter incorporates a hazardous area head-mounted transmitter that has the flexibility to digitally connect to distributed control systems (DCS) as well as output raw sensor signals to signal converters and flow computers. With 4-20mA, HART, WirelessHART, Sensor Time Period, FOUNDATION fieldbus and RS485 Modbus communications all supported, the system integration and start-up/commissioning costs are significantly reduced.
