With new, high-pressure capabilities working up to 500 bar, Sofraser continues to broaden the application field of its MIVI viscometer, which uses a rod vibrating at resonance frequency.
The MIVI sensor combines technological expertise with elevated performance features.
The standard MIVI sensor is regularly used for continuous product measurement from less than 2mPa.s and up to 1,000,000mPa.s in process conditions up to 300C and 150 bar.
In order to address increasingly drastic requirements in all application fields, Sofraser proposes the high-pressure MIVI sensor that works up to 500 bar.
Extremely high pressures represent even more interest to Sofraser, as they are developing a technological feature that will obtain reliable viscosity measurements at pressures up to 1,500 bar.
Performance such as this is especially useful in drilling applications.
Thanks to its thin vibrating rod, immersed in a small-volume measuring chamber (less than 15ml), the sensor is capable of handling expensive or rare samples.
The MIVI sensor can be used for small batches as well as lab-scale experiments.
It is also suitable for process installations and can be mounted either in-line, online, or on reactor.
The MIVI is available with Exproof Atex agreement for use in explosive areas and with Hastelloy wetted parts for corrosive products.
