The new L-Com 5500 Combined Density and Sound Velocity Sensor

The new L-Com 5500 Combined Density and Sound Velocity Sensor

For concentration measurement of three-component mixtures

L-Com 5500 represents Anton Paar’s new density and sound velocity sensor combination in one instrument for the measurement of 3-component mixtures. It consists of an L-Dens 7500 density sensor with a piezo-excited U-tube, which is expanded with a sound velocity module. Density and sound velocity values are directly calculated at the sensor electronics.

This fusion results in a high-end sensor with the highest accuracy on the market (5×10-5 g/cm³ for density measurement and 0.1 m/s for sound velocity measurement). It is ideal for the monitoring and controlling of chemicals such as formaldehyde-methanol-water mixtures, or for the production control of beers, which are analyzed by their alcohol, extract, and water content.

L-Com 5500 uses digital signal processing and can be equipped with the new Pico 3000 transmitter and Pico 3000 HMI.
