New Fluid Quality Sensors offer Innovative Fluid Property Detection for OEM Applications

11. June 2024

Leinfelden-Echterdingen, 11 June 2024. EBE’s new QCRB corTEC® quality sensors open up groundbreaking possibilities for measuring fluid properties in OEM and process applications. These innovative sensors combine capacitive and conductive measurements for precise media detection and enable comprehensive monitoring of fluid properties.

Many OEM and process applications require the detection and monitoring of fluid properties. Quality degradation over time, concentration measurement, air/gas bubble detection or the determination of the medium itself are just some of the tasks that today require different sensors to achieve the required detections. EBE fluid quality sensors now offer a way to achieve all this with a single sensor. Applicable for gases, liquids, solids and even highly viscous media, EBE’s corTEC® sensors can be housed in special hygienic, robust or miniature housings and excellently detect media properties even without direct contact to the medium.

Simultaneous acquisition of capacitive and conductive measured values

The QCRB sensors enable simultaneous and real-time acquisition of capacitive and conductive measured values, which previously required the use of two or more measuring devices. They cover capacitive measuring ranges from 0.1pF to 80pF and enable the detection of media in a range of relative permittivity (εr) from vacuum to water and beyond. To enable a comprehensive analysis of the media a conductivity measuring range extended from typ. 0.1 to 200mS/cm is available. In addition, the sensors offer real-time calibration to compensate for environmental influences, ensuring high short and long-term stability and repeatability. The sensors are ideal for mass production and enable OEMs to offer excellent quality analysis on a large scale in a cost-efficient manner.

Increasing efficiency and quality with QCRB sensors

In industrial and medical applications, EBE fluid quality sensors help to comply with regulations, improve health and safety and increase production efficiency through predictive maintenance and process optimization. Especially in industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and medical technology, where strict regulations apply, the sensor technology provides valuable real-time data, reduces the need for frequent laboratory testing and minimizes the associated costs. With the corTEC® fluid quality sensors, EBE offers a cost-effective, universal solution for the sophisticated detection and analysis of fluid properties in a wide range of industrial applications.
