Endress+Hauser integrates concentration measurement specialist

SensAction is now Endress+Hauser Flow Germany

Endress+Hauser Flow Germany specialises in instruments for measuring concentrations in liquids with the help of surface acoustic waves (SAW).

Endress+Hauser has wrapped up the integration of SensAction, a specialist in the field of concentration measurement for liquids based in Coburg, Germany. Now operating as Endress+Hauser Flow Germany, the company’s products and technologies broaden Endress+Hauser’s offering for measuring and analysing quality parameters.

SensAction was founded in 2008, and has been part of the Endress+Hauser Group since 2017. The fully owned subsidiary of Endress+Hauser Flowtec based in Reinach, Switzerland will now be integrated into the group.

The instruments for measuring concentrations in liquid utilise surface acoustic waves (SAW), a form of ultrasonic.  This technology can be deployed in all Endress+Hauser target markets. In the food and beverage industry, for example, it can determine the sugar content in mixed beverages such as soft drinks.

The measurement instruments made in Coburg are thus an “ideal fit” for the Endress+Hauser strategy, as Dr Mirko Lehmann, CEO of Endress+Hauser Flowtec, explained: “Our customers not only want to monitor physical parameters but also directly obtain information regarding product quality. Our goal is to be the market leader in ultrasonic flow measurement technology in combination with quality measurements.”

The company has also been integrating SAW technology to expand the Endress+Hauser product offering. “By combining quality and flow measurement, we can provide our customers with information for process optimisation. We also want to use Industry 4.0 solutions to help our customer improve efficiency and quality,” Michael Kaiser, head of ultrasonic and IIoT solutions, concluded.
