Magnetic Inductive Flowmeter

Operated by electromagnetic measurement, a voltage is induced in a conductor moving through a magnetic field.

MINI Oval Wheel Flowmeter

With an all stainless steel body and temperature measurement for fuel consumption, the Kobold DOE offers different pulse output options including one to measure pulsating flow from, for example, peristaltic pumps.

Vibrating limit level detection

KOBOLD’s NSV level monitors to measure low-density (powdery), fine-grained bulk solids, such as plastic granules, cement, and food like flour, sugar and animal feed.

Compact infrared camera for laser machining processes

Temperature measurement in processes where lasers are used, provides major challenges for infrared measurement technology.

OPTRIS offers fever inspection of passengers

The coronavirus and other diseases are highly infectious and transferred by sick people or contaminated objects. Globally, aircraft are one way that this virus is quickly exported worldwide. China, the epicenter of the 2019/20 coronavirus outbreak, has more than 200 airports, making it an international challenge to detect and prevent sick people flying and reaching and transmitting the virus to unaffected areas and countries. 



3 Oval Wheel Flowmeters for Multiple Applications

INSTROTECH, a Comtest Group Company, has on offer 3 Kobold oval wheel flowmeters, that give precise flow measurement for all viscous, non-abrasive clean liquids, and can be used in a number of diverse applications, such as measurement of fuel consumption for small aircraft, motorboats, and mobile power generators. Applicable media are all viscous, non-abrasive clean liquids, like petroleum and other fuels (including diesel), oil and grease, ink and pastes, and chemicals. 

Accelerometer for general purpose vibration monitoring

Instrotech, is promoting Monitran General Purpose Monitoring Sensors, for use with PLC’s and other industrial controllers. Monitran 1185C provides the users with a continuous output of vibration usually as a 4-20mA signal. Changes in the monitor signal will allow the user to spot vibration changes in the part of the machine to which the sensor is attached. Rapid changes accompany such conditions as machinery working loose from its mountings, fan blade malfunction, bearing failure all of which require immediate attention and machine shutdown to avoid widespread damage and loss of machine time. If the signal is logged at regular intervals, gradually increasing vibration indicates wear in the part of the machine where the sensor is fitted calling for replacement or detailed study with a portable vibration analyser.

Kobold’s range of coriolis mass flow meters

Bitumen measurement under difficult conditions

A product application case history
The Task: The special challenge of this application was to determine the exact temperature of heat-tracing, and to be adapted to the respective type of bitumen product used. The meters had to be robust and temperature-stable, and their accuracy should be unaffected by portable custody transfer devices.

No more awful shower experiences with Kobold!

Imagine standing under the shower in a hotel in the morning… What usually happens when other hotel guests all start to shower at the same time? The water temperature suddenly changes from pleasant to horribly cold or unbearably hot!

Ultrasonic sensor for remote water level measurement

Instrotech has the Senix ToughSonic CHEM range of ultrasonic sensors, in service around the world in some of the most demanding and corrosive industrial environments. They measure a wide variety of materials including diesel fuel levels in rail locomotives and levels of liquid chemicals in the paper and food processing industries. Senix ToughSonic CHEM sensors are also used in object detection and other non-liquid level applications where corrosive gasses are present.
