Instrotech’s multi-function weighing transmitter technology

Instrotech has on offer the multi-function weighing transmitter, the DPM6004MFl. It’s a powerful, compact, field-mounted unit that can be selected for a variety of weighing functions.

Monitoring Gas Burners with Kobold’s UTS Variable Area Flowmeter

Whenever flow of gases need to be adjusted or monitored the Kobold UTS offers a practical and affordable variable area flowmeter for monitoring gas burners.

4 Ultrasonic Level Meter for liquids and solids

KOBOLD has on offer an ultrasonic level meter, The Kobold-NUS-4, to be used for non-contact, continuous level and volume measurement in vessels or for flow measurement in open channels.



Accelerometers and velocity meters are used to measure a wide range of frequencies, including low frequency vibrations found in building maintenance. They occur at less than 2Hz, and can also be useful in monitoring bearing wear in cooling tower fans and gearboxes for example.

Having problems measuring/monitoring difficult media?

Kobold has a turbine wheel flowmeter, the Kobold model DOT, that is perfectly suited to low viscosity applications. Proven turbine wheel technology measures and monitors even difficult media such as distilled water, acids, bases, alcohol and additives as well as several chemical or pharmaceutical compounds.

Multi-sided digital manometer

KOBOLD as on offer the model Kobold MAN-SD intelligent digital manometers that offer reliable pressure monitoring of plant and machinery and has application in the fields of mechanical engineering, environmental technology and hydraulics.  The Kobold MAN-SD is battery-powered devices, which are fitted with piezo-resistive sensors, resist overloads up to three times nominal loading. 

Heavy-duty magnetic flow meter for mining and wastewater treatment

ELIS has on offer a special type of magnetic flow meter, the ELIS FLONET FS10, with an induction sensor for the precise flow measurement of conductive liquids.  The ELIS FLONET FS10 has a special wear-resistant lining made from natural stone and is fitted with FISHER-ROSEMONT evaluating electronics.

Humidity validation and compliance in food and pharmaceutical manufacturing

Because the control of humidity is vital for many processes in pharmaceutical manufacturing, there are a large number of probes in use at anytime – all of which will need to be regularly calibrated to ensure accuracy. Sending RH probes away for calibration is a time-consuming exercise for both food and pharmaceutical companies, but is often seen as necessary as creation, modification, archival, retrieval and transmission of electronic records is essential business practice.

Measuring volumetric flow by means of oscillation

KOBOLD offers their KOBOLD-DOG range of flowmeters that use the unique oscillation principle to measure dry or humid gases even in low pressure applications.

In this measuring procedure, a partial stream of the medium is led into the measuring cell by means of a bypass.  In the measuring cell, the medium flows through a chamber with two flow channels.  A gate allows the stream to flow through either the left or the right channel. The flow creates over-pressure on one side and under-pressure on the other.  The difference in pressure directs the media stream to the other side.  This results in the stream between the two sides oscillating, which sets the medium in the connecting channel into vibration. The frequency of the oscillation is directly proportional to the flow speed.  A detector determines the oscillation in the connecting channel and converts it into an electrical signal.  The signal is processed further in the downstream electronic unit and then displayed or output in another form.

Now you can measure very low flows of liquids and gasses

KOBOLD has on offer model KDF/ KDG, low volume flow meters and monitors, now available with shorter (90mm) installation length.

The Kobold KDF / Kobold KDG operate on the suspended float principle with a stainless steel ball, and are available in special versions for liquids and gases (air). The The Kobold KDF / Kobold KDG, with stainless steel housing are installed vertically with flow direction from bottom to top via 1Ž4” thread or hose connection of 8 mm diameter. The needle valve enables an optimal setting of the flow rate. The respective flow rates can be read quickly and easily by a direct view of the measuring tube made out of rugged borosilicate glass.
