Viscosity & Density Measurement Enabling Mass Flow Measurement

 Open the catalog to page 1

Most of the operating costs of a ship are fuel related. Therefore it is very important to use fuel in the most efficient way. Calculated Carbon Aromaticity Index (CCAI) is the index for the ignition quality of residual fuel oil and is calculated from density and viscosity of the fuel. The measurement and control of the viscosity and density ensures an improved combustion efficiency preventing engine damage and reduction of fuel and maintenance costs. ViscoSense®3D is able to measure inline the actual dynamic viscosity and density of a large range of liquids. The unique measuring principle...

Cost-effective solution To enable mass flow measurement, only a small upgrade of your current system Is required. *®l ^ = mass flow One ViscoSense®3D can be combined with one or multiple Flowmeters in the same fuel system, independent of configuration. Fuel consumption measurement by VAF Instruments’ Positive Displacement Flowmeters in combination with density measurement by the ViscoSense®3D is a cost-effective solution that enables mass flow measurements with highest accuracy, reliability and repeatability. Features and benefits As a result of the torsional vibration technique, the flow...
