Density Measurement for Industrial Applications

Providing accurate density and concentration readings in your continuous process

Density Measurement for Industrial Applications

Our density measurement systems work completely contactless and maintenance-free. They provide accurate density and concentration readings of liquids such as acids, alkalis, solutions and suspensions.

The density measuring systems can also be retrofitted to the outside of existing pipelines with the help of a clamping device. The density measurement can be used on pipe diameters from 25 mm to 1000 mm on chutes or vessels.

Measuring principle

Berthold's density measurement is radiometric and therefore ideally suited for use in extreme measurement environments, such as with abrasive, highly viscous or corrosive media, or even if there are vibrations. It is completely unaffected by the flow velocity of the medium. Learn more about the functionality and technology of density measurements.

Our density measurements offer a number of advantages:

  • Measurement independent of the physical properties of the material to be measured
  • Easy installation, on the outside of the pipeline
  • No changes to the piping required
  • Subsequent installation on existing systems possible without switching them off (downtime)
  • No contact with the material being measured
  • No wear and maintenance-free - high availability and thus high operational reliability
  • Long-term stable measurement without recalibration
  • [SIL2] [SIL3] [EX] TÜV Süd certified
  • Worldwide sales and on-site service from the leading manufacturer of radiometric measurement technology.

Highest sensitivity

Berthold detectors are particularly sensitive to gamma radiation. This offers the following advantages:

  • Increased measurement accuracy and faster response times
  • High long-term stability and measured value reproducibility
  • Significantly lower source activity
  • Longer lifetime
  • Use of smaller shields and thus lower costs
  • Minimum dose rate - less than 1 μSv/h

Unique long-term detector stability

A stable and reliable measurement over years is an important quality criterion when choosing a radiometric density measurement system. Accordingly, much effort has gone into the development and optimization of this detector property. Today we are proud to say that Berthold detectors offer the best long-term stability. A patented automatic drift compensation method compensates for temperature effects, ensuring high sensitivity and consistent measurement accuracy over the life of the system and years of operation without recalibration.
