Mass Measurement

Seven measuring functions in one device

May 2014 Mass Measurement

Krohne’s Optimass 6400 makes it possible to mass flow rate, mass counter, density, temperature, volume flow rate, volume counter and concentration of fluids and gases from a single device. This ‘7 in 1’ solution leads to lower investment costs with minimal maintenance.

So as not to lose sight of the fundamentals amongst so much functionality, the Optimass 6400 is factory-fitted with an extensive diagnostics package that not only monitors the meter itself, but also the process and the process conditions. This new high-performance Coriolis mass flowmeter for liquids and gases is suitable for high temperature, high pressure and cryogenic applications.
