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, which is expanded with a sound velocity module.
This fusion results in a high-end sensor with the highest accuracy on the market (5x10-5 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 can be equipped with the new Pico 3000 transmitter and Pico 3000 HMI.
The smart combination of process density and sound velocity sensors enables highly sophisticated concentration measurement with one single instrument.
Concentration determination of 3-component mixtures
With sensor dimensions of 260 mm x 145 mm x 200 mm (L x W x H) the L-Com 5500 can be mounted in the smallest space using various process connections which are common and standard for all industries.
Benefit from in-house concentration formula development for your application, which is then integrated into your instrument.
The L-Com 5500 sensor combines the outstanding accuracy of the L-Dens 7500 with the signal processing technology of L-Sonic.
L-Com 5500 stands for
Unstable process conditions are compensated and changing process and environmental conditions have no impact on the performance of L-Com 5500.
To provide the utmost flexibility for all types of process installations, different options are available to satisfy your needs:
For inline, bypass, and direct tank installations, L-Com 5500 comes in combination with various media pump units (Inline Pump 520, integrated sample pump) to ensure constant media flow through the sensor to guarantee stable measurement values.
For inline and bypass installations standard process adapters, without the need for a media pump, are available.
Delivered ready-to-use, L-Com 5500 does not require extensive on-site effort for commissioning or adjustments. L-Com 5500 delivers reliable concentration measurement values right from the beginning, without the need of a start-up phase.
You simply fit the sensor and can rely on concentration measurement at the highest accuracy over the entire working life of the sensor. No additional operating costs for consumables or maintenance have to be calculated, which enables you to keep competitive production costs.
