The new L-Dens 7000 density sensor series

Highly precise and easy to integrate
L-Dens 7400/L-Dens 7500

The new L-Dens 7000 series – the new generation of Anton Paar’s process density sensors with a tube size of 6.3 mm (inner diameter) – is a result of more than 35 years of essential practical experience. This all-in-one solution combines the highest accuracy, compact and robust design, and easy integration, which makes it best-in-class for precise concentration measurement. There are two types: 4-digit accuracy L-Dens 7400 and 5-digit accuracy L-Dens 7500. Density values are directly calculated by the sensor electronics.

The design of the oscillating U-tube follows the requirements of hygienic applications. Both, L-Dens 7400 and L-Dens 7500, have one-piece oscillating tubes (L-Dens 7400: U-shaped tube; L-Dens 7500: W-shaped tube). The L-Dens 7000 series uses digital signal processing and can be equipped with the new Pico 3000 transmitter and Pico 3000 HMI.

Key Features

Highest precision – reliable measurement under changing process conditions

Highest precision – reliable measurement under changing process conditions

The L-Dens 7000 density sensor series measures with the highest precision and an outstanding accuracy of up to 5 x 10-5 g/cm³.

The L-Dens 7000 series provides:

  • Powerful digital signal processing
  • Integrated high-precision temperature sensors
  • A hermetically sealed U-tube to withstand humidity condensations

The highest accuracy in temperature and optional pressure measurement is the basis for compensating unstable process conditions. Thus, changing process and environmental conditions have a negligible effect on the measurement. This keeps the production flexible to react to market or consumer demands.

Minimized integration efforts and costs

Minimized integration efforts and costs

The question of where and how an instrument can be integrated into a system is essential with regard to minimizing engineering efforts and costs. Being very compact und modular, sensors of the L-Dens 7000 series can even be mounted in the tightest spaces and meet the most demanding system requirements.
The L-Dens 7000 density sensor series with its wetted parts and adapters is prepared for:

  • The petroleum, chemical, pharmaceutical, ethanol, or beverage industry
  • Hazardous areas
  • Hygienic applications
  • Withstanding extremely aggressive chemicals
  • Full flow, inline, bypass, or tank installation
