Water content determination

Liebherr develops and manufactures reliable measurement systems to determine the water content in emulsions and fluids. The systems can be integrated into various production plants such as pipelines and tanks. Customers benefit from a fully-automated production process. Our systems measure, monitor and regulate the water content automatically. Continuous measurement guarantees high precision.

Reliability that promotes trust

Liebherr developed the first sensors more than 30 years ago as part of its concrete technology. We therefore design our sensors traditionally for use under extreme conditions. This guarantees high process reliability for our customers. Our WMS sensors can therefore withstand pressures of up to 85 bar. Furthermore, the sensors meet the requirements for use in potentially explosive areas.
