Electromagnetic flowmeter for pulp and paper applications by Krones


Krohne offers the Optiflux 4000 electromagnetic flowmeter, for pulp and paper industry applications, including chemical dosing, bleaching, coloring, and black liquor processing. It offers reliable measurement under demanding conditions, including temperatures up to 356°F, pressures up to 36,259 pound-force per square inch (psi), and solids contents as high as 70%. With its robust fully welded construction, full bore pipe construction, absence of moving parts, and wear-resistant liner materials, the Optiflux 4000 is the choice for harsh environments or with aggressive and abrasive media like those found in pulp and paper applications.

Part of the Optiflux line of trusted and accepted flow sensors for process applications, the Optiflux 4000 has rugged construction that extends equipment lifetime. With corrosion resistant and leak tight electrodes, it offers good corrosion, erosion, and abrasion resistance. It is available with a wide choice of housing and flange materials, including stainless steel, duplex, and 6mo. To deal with the challenging noisy process fluids like extremely viscous pulp stock, low noise electrode options are also available. The Optiflux 4000 features bi-directional flow metering and provides extensive diagnostic capabilities.
