The Point of Measurement
In analytical measurement loops consisting of a sensor, fitting, and process analyzer (transmitter), the application is crucial to the choice of individual components. The measurement problem can rarely be reduced to the transmitter alone, but usually comes down to understanding the complete interplay between the individual elements of the point of measurement.
By confronting the problems directly where they arise, Knick has been able to gain significant additional knowledge from the close interaction of customer know-how and the experience and expertise of its own employees. Some years ago, to complement Knick’s more than sixty years of expert knowledge of circuit technology and pH electrodes, the company acquired the Hagen-based specialists Regnault, known for their ultrapure-water applications with steel fittings and conductivity sensors, and integrated its products within its own range.
In its usual way, Knick began by addressing the most complicated applications with the greatest challenges, starting where existing fittings fail. This required a huge investment in terms of time and materials and resulted in the set-up of mechanical production centers of the highest standard.
