Mounting

Olpas sensors can be mounted in any direction using any type of process connection due to their small size and stainless steel housing. The sensor is sensitive to all types of solid particles independent of density or size, from fine nanometer-sized particles in nanofluids up to millimeters. Organic or inorganic particles, polymers or slurries: the OLPAS analysis of ultrasound backscattering signals is inherently robust and reliable to determine the solids concentration.

Pool and inline measurements are both feasible with the majority of mounting solutions or process connections directly compatible with our sensors. The ultrasound signal is measured locally, allowing mounting of the sensor in small and large pipes without interference from surrounding materials.
