Very viscous liquids (above 5000 mPa·s at 1/s) may require additional pressure to flow unhindered into the RheoStream instrument.
In case the pressure in the factory piping/tank is not sufficient to drive the liquid flow, RheoStream is fitted with a feeding pump
The pre-filter is flushed automatically to keep it clean.
It is possible to separate sample (product) and/or cleaning liquids or calibration check liquids, to make sure that foreign liquids do not re-enter the product stream.
Alternatively, larger containers may be placed close to RheoStream or RheoStream can be connected to e.g. CIP liquid supply and waste.
- Hygiene – sterile valve
- ATEX – zone 2 compatibility
If the liquid being measured and/or the cleaning liquid employed are volatile and lead to the presence of flammable gasses, the ATEX zone 2 version of RheoStream must be installed.
