Abstract

This paper covers application of Coriolis flow meter for continual monitoring of sucrose solution evaporation process. In this process, density, viscosity and volumetric flow rate depend on temperature and concentration of sucrose solution. Provided that the solution is of constant concentration and under constant temperature, these three parameters of solution can be successfully continually measured by using different methods. A problem occurs in the process of sucrose solution evaporation when the concentration of sucrose in the water and temperature increase in time. Application of majority of methods for density, viscosity and volumetric flow rate measurement of liquids demands compensation of these parameters due to solution temperature and concentration change, by taking these into account. This research aims to examine possibility to apply Coriolis flow meter for continual density and volumetric flow rate measurement of sucrose solution in the process of solution evaporation if temperature and concentration increase in time. Presence of air and bubbling of the solution in the evaporation process produce appreciable errors in density and volumetric flow rate measuring when using Coriolis meter. There is a need for systematic trials, closely supported by basic physical modeling, in order to gain a deeper understanding of error behavior of Coriolis meters under two-phase flow of sucrose solution.
