Lenterra Drag Force Flow (DFF) Sensor
The Drag Force Flow (DFF) sensor offers in-line, real-time flow measurement to a number of industries looking to improve process understanding and manufacturing efficiency. The DFF
is mounted on a stationary base, and contains two optical strain gauges, made up of Fibre Bragg Gratings, which are connected to an Optical Interrogator via a fibre optic cable. When immersed, the DFF sensor bends under the force of the flow and quantifies the drag force, allowing the user to determine in-process properties of materials. The data collected allows for optimised cycle times, reduced costs, and improved product quality and consistency.
