Description

Noninvasive device provides both static and dynamic measures of void fraction in gas-vapor mixes.

NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center is offering opportunities for its new fiber optic mass flow sensor system. Capable of measuring multiphase flows in a pipe, the technology is minimally invasive, cost effective, retrofittable, and compact. MSFCs new technology combines high accuracy, intrinsically safe operation, and low-cost flow sensing for virtually any optically transparent medium, providing a superior product for measuring multi-phase flows.
