THE BENEFITS OF NON-INVASIVE FLOW METERS FOR BIOPROCESSING
Bioprocessing is a general term encompassing the research, development, manufacture, and marketing of products prepared from or used by biological systems, including food, feed, fuels, biopharmaceuticals, and pharmaceuticals. cosmetics. In other words, bioprocessing is the modification or application of materials of biological origin to be used as products or raw materials to formulate products that are beneficial to society.
The bioprocess industry requires the frequent and repeated use of liquid-based operations. To support these applications, fluid flow and level must be closely monitored and maintained. The question is: what is the best way to achieve this?
Using non-invasive ultrasonic flow meters for daily flow management makes processes more accurate and repeatable. With the use of pressure sensitive film, applications can be automated and if there are any errors, the system can automatically shut down and notify the user to resolve any liquid inlet or level issues.
How Flow Meters Simplify Flow Management
Flow meters have pressure indicating film inside that can automate both flow and fill rates. To prevent the sensor from contaminating the liquid, the flowmeters are of the clamp type: the flowmeter attaches to the outside of the tube, which allows precise and non-invasive measurement. Ideally, it is preferable to have a flow meter that offers real-time management. This way the pump speed can be adjusted manually when needed.
What makes our flow sensors so unique? Flowmeters
Flowmeters designed by Pressure Metrics provide exceptional time resolution at lower flow rates. SMD flow technology combines an in-line or clamp-on flow meter sensor or multiple sensors, which work with the FlowDAQ electronic touch screen module to obtain flow rate information, system parameters and flow meter sensor control. The FlowDAQ system can integrate time-of-flight, temperature, sound velocity, and signal strength parameters to determine flow rate, accumulated flow volume, viscosity, density, and even fluid identity.
