The OPTIFLUX 4000 offers reliable measurement under demanding conditions, including temperatures up to 356°F, pressures up to 36,259 pound-force per square inch (psi), and solids contents as high as 70 percent.

 With its robust fully welded construction, full bore pipe construction, absence of moving parts, and wear- resistant liner materials, the OPTIFLUX 4000 is an excellent choice for harsh environments or with aggressive and abrasive media like those found in pulp and paper applications.
