The Type 8098 flowmeter is part of the FLOWave product range. It is based on SAW (Surface Acoustic Waves) technology and is mainly designed for applications with the highest hygienic demands. This is achieved by using: • suitable stainless steel materials • a measuring tube free of any wetted parts except for the actual tube • the ideal outer hygienic design. FLOWave offers a range of integrated functions, including the advantages of flexibility, ease of cleaning, compact dimensions, lightweight, easy installation and handling, and is compliant with numerous standards. Optimal measurement results can be achieved with homogeneous liquids, free of air and solid particles. For liquids with high viscosity, an integrated viscosity compensation can be activated. Gas and steam cannot be measured; however, their flow does not have any negative effect on the device or its operation and other liquids flowing through afterwards are measured correctly as before. Special functions derived from further process values (density factor, acoustic transmission factor) offer additional information about the particular liquid in use (for details, see data sheet).
