Analyzer Monitors Oil Concentration In Cooling Processes

Analyzer Monitors Oil Concentration In Cooling Processes
SensoTech Inc.

Designed for refrigerant applications, the LiquiSonic OCR analyzer monitors the oil circulation ratio in the refrigerant online and directly in the process using sonic velocity measurement. Due to the chemical and physical properties of refrigerants, sonic velocity measurement is allegedly ideal for determining the concentration. A LiquiSonic sensor is installed in the pipeline and combined with a pressure transducer. Additionally, two Pt1000 temperature probes are integrated in the sensor, so that the temperature- and pressure-compensated oil concentration can be calculated in real time. The measurement accuracy is ± 0.1% m and the sensors are completely maintenance-free due to the robust design. At temperatures between -30 °C (-20 °F) and 120 °C (250 °F), the sensors can be used in oil/refrigerant mixtures such as polyester oils (POE), polyalkylene (PAG), polyalphaolefins (PAO), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) R134a, 1234yf, carbon dioxide R744 or ammonia R717 in various industries like automotive or building air-conditioning. The LiquiSonic controller displays and stores the real-time information. Via 4-20 mA signal, digital outputs, serial interfaces, fieldbus or Ethernet, the controller can be integrated into the network and control system.
