The Toshiba LQ500 microwave analyzer measurement technique is based on the way solids affects the propagation of microwaves compared to all other ingredients in the pipe and thus the unit is solely specific to the percent solids in the pipe.
Microwave technology has no pressure drop in the line, no fouling or depleting sensors, no nuclear issues, and has very low maintenance.
The LQ500 has a linear output and is optimized to measure true percent total solids in your process, not pounds per hour. Accordingly, very high accuracy measurement (Resolution: 0.001% Total Solids) and excellent closed loop control is easily implemente
