New modular level meters

Krohne has introduced the Optiwave 5200 C/F, a new 10 GHz FMCW radar level meter for liquid applications up to 30 m measuring range. The cost-effective 2-wireloop powered device measures level and volume in storage or process tanks with process conditions up to 250 °C and pressures up to 40 bar. Together with the recently […]

Signal converter for electromagnetic flowmeters

  Krohne has introduced the new IFC 050 signal converter for electromagnetic flowmeters. Developed for the growing water markets  worldwide, IFC 050 is designed to fit in any basic water or wastewater application. IFC 050 can be combined with Optiflux and Waterflux series of electromagnetic flow sensors. Together with Optiflux 1000, 2000 and Waterflux 3000 sensors, […]

Diagnostic approaches for process optimisation

Due to high reliability and accuracy, low maintenance requirements, low power consumption and insignificant pressure loss, electromagnetic flow meters (magmeters) are among the process industries’ preferred flow measuring devices. To cover the widest possible spectrum of applications, Krohne has developed a complete series of measuring technology sensors, all belonging to the Optiflux line. The measuring […]

Flow meter for volumetric filling machines

Batchflux 5500 C is said to be the industrial standard for volumetric filling machines. Its zirconium oxide liner guarantees extreme long-term dimensional stability and therefore no change in repeatability of filling volumes over long periods of time. It is the successor to the Batchflux 5015 C, and offers some major improvements for the most commonly […]

Level meter for liquids and solids

Krohne has introduced the new Optiflex 2200 C/F level meter for liquids and solids at Achema 2012. The two-wire device adds to the portfolio of TDR guided radar level meters offered by the manufacturer and supplier of solutions in industrial process instrumentation. Optiflex 2200 C/F is based on time domain reflectometry technology, and developed as […]

Online academy launched

The Krohne Academy online is a web-based training program where customers can train themselves on specific topics valid for the whole process industry and not only for Krohne. The content does not provide advertising either, as it decided to provide the content on an external platform, called Krohne Academy online. This platform is dedicated to […]

Empty pipe detection in electromagnetic flow meters

The Krohne IFC 300 signal converter monitors the measuring tube for complete filling using its diagnostic function “flow profile test”, regardless of electrical conductivity, viscosity and incrustations. Generally, the flow profile test only responds when the liquid level has sunk below a value of approx. 75%. The empty pipe detector must then be activated as […]

Mass flowmeter for chemical industry

BASF has been using the Tantalum version of the Optimass 7300 C device to fill tankers with highly aggressive and toxic liquids since 2009. These devices measure the mass flow of chloroformates and acid chlorides used in the manufacture of plastics, pharmaceuticals and packaging products at a rate of 60 t/h. The liquids have a […]

New cost-effective level meter

Krohne has introduced the new Optiflex100 C level meter for liquids and solids in non-explosive environments. This level meter offers a cost-effective and higher performing replacement for traditional level meters such as RF capacitance, conductive and pressure level meters. The Optiflex 1100 C is 2-wire, loop-powered and available with a standard 20 m cable or […]

Variable area flowmeter supports fieldbus

Krohne has introduced the H250 M40 variable area flowmeter featuring Foundation fieldbus functionality. This is said to guarantee complete integration into and interoperability with Foundation fieldbus control systems, including previously installed devices. The modular design of the flowmeter launched in 2009 also allows for retrofitting to Foundation fieldbus devices. It is fed completely from the […]
