  9. Development of an Industrial On-Line Sensor

    SBC: Bradley Experimentation Software Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The need for economical on line sensors in the food industry is clear. Discussions with the food industry have led us to conclude that existing sensors do not meet their needs in terms of price and accuracy. Such a sensor must be non-contact and sufficiently rugged to withstand the industrial environment. Most important, it must be robust enough to accurately measure one component (i.e. salinity) ...
