About flowplus16 Compact Inline Fluid Sensor


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 analyse static and dynamic application flow mechanics using the output and appropriate software.

flowplus QC control monitor

The ViscoTec flowplus QC control monitor is designed and produced for the monitoring of dosing processes. Up to two pressure sensors can be attached. The pressure values determined from the measurement signals are shown on it’s 5” colour touch screen.

When used in conjunction with the flowplus16, the monitor outputs signals from the flowplus16 into visual lines on the screen. Unstable or pulsating flow rates, e.g. pressure variations can be individually selected and evaluated to optimise your process. The intuitive user guidance of the software and the user-friendly touchscreen grant optimal process control for your application.
