FLEXIM GmbH, BerlinCompany, Optical Analytics

As a technogical leader in the field of clamp-on ultrasonic flow measurement, FLEXIM offers you ideal the ideal flow meter - even for the most demanding challenges.
Whether it be liquids or gases, extreme temperatures, high pressures or highly variable flow rates in thick walled pipes, our range of FLUXUS flow meters are the measurement system of choice.
With more than 20 years of engineering experience, FLEXIM also offers you solutions for a real time concentration analysis with laboratory accuracy. Depending on the individual application, PIOX analyses the process by ultrasound or optically by measuring the refractive index.
Refractometry - in other words, the measurement of light refraction - has proven itself as a method of choice for determining the concentration, density and purity of liquids in the laboratory time and time again.

FLEXIM moves the Refractometry out of the laboratory into the process, so that the advantages of this method, such as:
Speed, accuracy, reliability and independence from color, turbidity as well as gas bubbles, can be used during online-measurements.
Transferring laboratory technology into the process involves special challenges concerning material and construction. FLEXIM faces these challenges with the transmitted light principle - the determination of the refractive index directly within the volume flow. The method is thus especially reliable during process conditions with dynamic temperature and pressure changes and is further not affected by deposits.
Process analysis with PIOX R ensures many advantages:
Continous quality management, process optimization, resources savings and a higher operating reliability.

Every generation of FLEXIM products is directly driven by customer and industry needs and our focus and dedication is directed towards providing the highest quality equipment with the best support and service possible.
