Smart Sense Viscosity System
Rivertrace Engineering have developed a Viscosity System for Heavy Fuel Oil & Marine Distillate applications. The technique used in the SMART Sense sets it apart from other viscometer’s as it incorporates an improved method of using the vibrating rod at resonance frequency. The technique is Electro Magnetic which is far more robust than other piezo electric methods. Through this new principle it is now possible to measure accurately viscosity and temperature without frequent calibration or maintenance. The SMART Sense Viscosity System is designed for full flow, inline installation in Heavy Fuel Oil and Marine Distillate applications allowing for improved accuracy at lower viscosity when switching between HFO and Marine Distillate.
SMART Sense Viscosity System
The SMART Sense Viscosity System comprises of an oscillating Viscosity Probe which is connected to the Viscosity Controller Module via a 5m cable.
The SMART Sense Viscosity Probe Housing has standard flanges for easy installation and retro-fitting against other makers probes.
The SMART Sense Viscosity Controller electronics are housed in a robust die-cast enclosure that can withstand the harshest environments in marine applications.
The SMART Sense PID Module consisits of two separate controllers for displaying Viscocity and Temperature allowing for redundancy in the case of failure. These are attached to a aluminium anodised plate for fitting into the customer console.
