SensAction, a manufacturer of systems for measuring the concentration of liquids, will remain in Coburg, Germany and keep its 13 employees.
Key fields of application for the instruments include concentration measurements for liquid process media.
Stefan Rothballer and Michael Münch, two of SensAction’s founders, will continue to manage the business.
It will operate as a division of the Endress+Hauser center of competence for flow measurement technology in Reinach, Switzerland.
Endress+Hauser plans to integrate SensAction instruments into its own program and open up new markets via the group’s international sales structures.
Dr Bernd-Josef Schäfer, managing director of Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG, said the technology fits with its modern flow measurement portfolio.
“It allows us to further expand our range of products for measuring quality parameters.”
Coriolis flow measurement devices from Endress+Hauser can determine mass flow and density.
Electromagnetic instruments can measure conductivity parallel to the volume flow.
SensAction’s systems measure the concentration of liquids with the help of surface acoustic waves, which are high frequency soundwaves.
By analyzing the transmission time and amplitude, the acoustic parameters of the liquid, such as soundwave velocity, impedance and density can be measured to determine concentration.
SensAction also offers software products that rely on laboratory measurement to provide accuracy for customer applications.
