Title
(EN) GEAR FLOW METER WITH OUT OF PRODUCT SENSOR
(FR) DÉBITMÈTRE À ENGRENAGE DOTÉ D'UN CAPTEUR HORS DE PRODUIT
Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments of the invention are directed toward methods and systems including a flow meter. The flow meter can include one or more sensors and be capable of detecting parameters of the fluid flowing therethrough. One or more sensors can include capacitive sensors having a plurality of electrodes and configured to detect capacitive properties of a fluid flowing through the flow meter. Detected changes in detected properties of the fluid can be evidence of important changes in the fluid, such as an out of product event or a contamination of the fluid.
(FR)
Des modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent des procédés et des systèmes comprenant un débitmètre. Le débitmètre peut comprendre un ou plusieurs capteurs et peut détecter des paramètres du fluide s'écoulant en son sein. Un ou plusieurs capteurs peuvent comprendre des capteurs capacitifs ayant une pluralité d'électrodes et conçus pour détecter des propriétés capacitives d'un fluide s'écoulant à travers le débitmètre. Les changements détectés des propriétés détectées du fluide peuvent être une preuve de changements importants survenus dans le fluide, tel qu'un événement hors de produit ou une contamination du fluide.
