Density is certainly a fundamental physical attribute of any liquid that is the subject of a process control operation. The ability to accurately measure liquid density in a process application is achievable using specially applied technology from Yokogawa.

The company's latest version, the model DM8, is a vibration type liquid density analyzer with reliable, multi-function operation. It is the culmination of manufacturing and density measurement technology experience extending back over 40 years. The DM8 employs a converter with an incorporated microprocessor to directly convert sensor frequency signals into displayed density values. One touch calibration, internal diagnositics, and digital communications are also provided.


The DM8 liquid density analyzer measures liquid density of general process liquids with high sensitivity and excellent stability. It has a measuring density range of 0 to 2.0 g/cm3, and is unaffected by flow rate and viscosity. Sensor options include general-purpose, sanitary, and explosion proof versions.
