NIR/VIS absorption sensor for suspended solids and phase detection

OUSAF12 is an optical sensor for the inline detection of suspended solids and product interphases in many industries. It supports you with reliable absorbance measurements to accurately control the quality of products and processes, and to improve production efficiency. OUSAF12 is ready for all kinds of environments, from hazardous areas (ATEX, FM) to hygienic processes (CIP/SIP).
