Ultimo Introduces Non-Invasive Density, Viscosity Meter

The non-invasive Density and Viscosity Meter from Ultimo Measurement LLC measures the absolute or relative density or viscosity of any liquid or loose solid material with process temperatures up to 800 degrees F. Featuring vibration-based (non-acoustic) technology, the DVM strikes the outside wall of a vessel to create an oscillation of the vessel wall and the material on the other side of the wall. It then captures and analyzes the oscillations to determine the density or viscosity of the material inside. The system works with steel, aluminum and plastic-based vessels and pipes. 401/647-9135; www.ultimompd.com.

Duperon Offers Perforated Plate Screen

The Perforated Plate Screen from Duperon uses Hydropression to clean the static perforated plate of hair, grease, plastics, paper and small particulate matter. Front-mounted debris skimmers guide materials released by Hydropression to the surface for disposal. 800/383-8479; www.duperon.com.
