Instrumentation: OPTIMASS Coriolis Mass FlowmeterSource: KROHNE, Inc.
OPTIMASS the new family of Coriolis mass flowmeters is now improving performance in more applications for more customers than ever before.
OPTIMASS overcomes the constraints on flow, materials and applications traditionally associated with single straight tube Coriolis meters.
OPTIMASS provides superb accuracy and reliability, as well as a whole host of innovative features and benefits for the user.
No limits with tube materials
Titanium, Hastelloy, or Stainless Steel allow straight tube metering for almost any process.
No limits with flow
From 0.3 to 560,000 kg/h with a full range of meters for low and high flow applications.
No limits with measured product
High viscosity, particulate matter, inhomogeneous mixtures, normal entrained air, have little effect on the accuracy of the measurement.
No limits with installation
Support on the process pipe or the meter body, without the need for accurate positioning. A complete range of process connectors for all existing and future installations is available.
No limit with electronics
OPTIMASS has been designed with all new electronics, which incorporates Front End signal processing that is permanently mounted to the meter. This provides high speed and low noise measurement, as well as remote connection to the signal converter up to 300 m. Dual redundancy of configured data, calibration constants etc ease maintenance.
No limits with applications
KROHNE can provide metering solutions whatever your requirement including: Flow, Density, Concentration and Temperature.

KROHNE has re-designed the Coriolis flowmeter from the inside out to produce an instrument that is inherently balanced under all operating conditions. The result is a meter that can cope with the most demanding process conditions and still deliver accurate and reliable measurement time after time. KROHNE's patented AST design is extrememly stable and will adaptively tune each meter independent of external forces and fluid density.
Tried and tested technology
To ensure the highest standards of quality and accuracy, all meters in the OPTIMASS family have been rigorously tested. Both Series 7000 and Series 7100 have been comprehensively trialed at major chemical, pharmaceutical and food and beverage sites in Europe to actively measure the mass flow of substances such as margarine, coffee extract and pesticides, and are delivering previously unattainable levels of performance.
