SHIFT CONNECTOR (SPECIAL OPTION)
The shift connector allows to shift the tip of your Labasys® Control Ex 'Bulk-Flow' instrument to different measuring position in an operational and thus pressurized Spherizone plant. Lets you monitor the velocity of your bulk flow at different positions with only one instrument.
Approved by LyondellBasell for the velocity measurement in the recirculation loop of the 'multi-zone circulating reactor' MZCR of their Spherizone (PP) & Hyperzone (PE) process.
Any kind of particulate bulk material flows in tubes or reactors with known direction of solid/gas or solid/liquid systems, e.g.:
Recirculation rate of polymer material in MZCR reactor of Spherizone (PP) & Hyperzone (PE) process
Solids transport loops in Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC) for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in carbonate, calciner thermal loop or in the oxygen transport loop.
