Lenterra Inline Rheometer (LIR)
A fiber-optical technology bringing a solution to your process monitoring needs. LIR provides multiple characterization of flowing material in real time in a desired locality within your processing equipment. Inline or offline. Liquids or powders.
Drag Force Flow sensor
The heart of LIR is DFF - a robust and reliable sensor that delivers sensitive measurements of shear stress and temperature in a flow. No moving parts and no electronics. Fiber-optical sensing and connectivity.

RealShearTM Wall Shear Stress sensor
An extension of DFF sensor, Lenterra’s RealShearTM is the smallest of its kind floating-element-based sensor. Installed flush with the wall of a mixer or pipe, it provides direct measurement of wall shear stress exerted by flowing liquid or gas, in real time. Small footprint. Sensitive measurement.
Data on your computer screen
Lenterra’s plug-and-play LENFLOW measurement software connects all parts of LIR, communicates with the interrogator, and displays multiple flow characteristics during the measurement. The post-processing software LENSIGHT includes a number of tools for specific and detailed analysis of the acquired data while comparing with results of other measurements. Intuitive controls. Modifiable graphics.
In line and real time
Revolutionary step in rheometry
Off-line product testing is not sufficient to assure that a process consistently results in product with predetermined specifications. Lenterra’s inline solution opens a window to adequate process design, to knowledge and control of factors that are responsible for process variability. LIR offers a prospective for reliable production of a quality product.
