flowplus16 Compact Inline Fluid Sensor

flowplus compact inline sensor section

The ViscoTec flowplus16 compact inline fluid sensor delivers optimum process assurance for fluid dispensing or dosing applications. It finds application in critical processes where the highest levels of quality control are mandated, or where simple, reliable fluid pressure sensing is required.

By measuring the pressure of the liquid being dispensed or dosed, the flowplus16 provides precise monitoring of flows up to 100ml/min, enabling you to achieve consistent results by detecting issues such as inconsistent material feed, clogging needles or nozzles, unsuitable needle-to-substrate distance or the presence of air bubbles in the fluid.

For laboratory or analytic work, the flowplus16 will deliver pressure and flow information, and can analyze static and dynamic application flow mechanics using the output and appropriate software.

  • Helps achieve optimum dispensing/dosing process control
  • Precise flow pressure measurement
  • Simple to connect and integrate
  • Industry-standard output signal
  • Can be used with all fluids
  • FDA-certified interior surface
  • Compatible with all media via an FDA-certified FFKM perfluoroelastomer interior surface
  • No dead space in the sensor
  • Connects with any commercial PLC or intelligent evaluation system via M8 connector
  • Standard 0-10V output signal
  • Built in signal amplifier eliminates need for external transducers or boosters
  • Standard luer lock fitting at both ends
  • Easy to install and integrate into existing dispensing or dosing systems
  • Maintenance-free, easy to clean
  • Can be used in static or moving applications

Measurable, consistent liquid flow enabled by the use of flowplus16 helps users to guarantee reliability, safety and standards compliance in a wide range of industries, including:

  1. Life Sciences
  2. Laboratory
  3. Pharmaceutical
  4. Research & Development
