MLA1000 stationary, continous measurement systemconstantly measurement of inline electric conductivity of flowing light oils
Installed directly in pipelines, the new MLA1000 constantly measures inline the electric conductivity and the temperature of flowing light oils, for example Jet A-1 kerosene, and is consequently able to control continuously the dosing of additives. “Utilising the MLA1000 enhances significantly the safety in handling aviation fuel,” declared MBA Instruments CEO Hans-Heinrich Westphal, who added “At high flow speeds and simultaneous low conductivity for example kerosene can be electrostatically charged and ignite.” To prevent this, the conductivity is increased by dosing additives to dissipate the electrostatic charge to the tank or pipeline wall. “Until now conductivity has been measured at longer intervals using either individual laboratory samples or our own hand-held MLA900 device. “The dosed volumes of the required additives were often estimated,” explained Hans-Heinrich Westphal.
