Teqwave from Endress & Hauser
Teqwave – Real-time concentration measurement of fluids
Teqwave is an ultrasonic based device for the single point or continuous measurement of fluid concentration levels. Each liquid combination has an acoustic fingerprint that Teqwave tracks and monitors in real-time, enabling much tighter control of your wet processes with minimal effort and great ROI.
The applications are many, but some of the common uses are: –
- Detergent levels in aqueous cleaning plants.
- Monitoring cleaning fluids to understand filtration performance.
- Polymer quenching applications.
- Citric acid baths.
- Fluid cross-contamination, such as leaking heat exchangers.
- Plating and coating line baths
Challenges of traditional titration methods
Many process concentration levels are controlled by titration, which:-
❌can be a slow process,
❌involves some nasty test fluids,
❌requires trained staff to carry out the test
❌can be somewhat subjective,
❌allows human error to creep in when manually recording data.
❌is a single point test for the here and now,
❌even tested daily, your fluids may be outside spec. almost a day.
The customer benefits of Teqwave, on the other hand, are: –
✔removes uncertainty through continuous measurement,
✔reduces H&S risks.
✔improves your environmental credentials.
✔Flags up non-conformance at the point it happens.
✔Option to immediately adjust levels via the system outputs.
✔Optional monitoring of a second concentration.
✔Deliver real ROI in a matter of months.
