SensAction moves under the roof of the Endress + Hauser competence center for flow measurement technology based in Reinach, Switzerland. "The new technology fits our modern portfolio for flow measurement technology," emphasizes Dr. Bernd-Josef Schäfer, Managing Director of Endress + Hauser Flowtec. "We are thus expanding our range of measurement of quality parameters." SensAction's headquarters in Coburg, Bavaria, will be retained, and the 13 employees will continue to be employed.

Focus on new markets for flowmeters

Coriolis flowmeters from Endress + Hauser can already determine the density in addition to the mass flow; Magnetic-inductive devices are able to measure the conductivity parallel to the volume flow. "These physical analysis parameters create direct benefits for the customer," emphasizes Bernd-Josef Schäfer. Endress + Hauser will integrate the SensAction devices into its own program and open up new markets via the group's international sales structures. In addition, the technology will also be combined directly with Endress + Hauser flowmeters in the future.

New technology: measurement with surface acoustic waves

SensAction systems measure the concentration of liquids using surface acoustic waves. These are high-frequency sound waves whose physical behavior can be compared to seismic waves like an earthquake. By evaluating the transit time and wave amplitude, acoustic parameters of the liquid such as speed of sound, impedance and density and - derived from this - the concentration can be determined precisely and quickly. The systems have no moving parts and are therefore wear-free and low-maintenance.

SensAction not only develops and manufactures systems for concentration measurement, but also offers complementary services - for example, software products that, based on a laboratory measurement, then ensure that the application is particularly accurate and user-friendly. Important areas of application for the SensAction devices are concentration measurements in liquid process media.

SensAction AG will be taken over retroactively as of January 1, 2017. Both parties have agreed not to disclose the details of the sale. Stefan Rothballer and Michael Münch, two of the founders of SensAction, will continue to run the company.
