Abstract: The invention relates to a device for determining the dew point temperature of a measurement gas, having a light guide, a condensation surface located on the light guide and whose reflectivity is dependent on the condensation of the measurement gas, a light source for emitting light through the light guide onto the condensation surface, a light sensor for determining the light intensity reflected back into the light guide by the condensation surface and means for adjusting the temperature of the condensation surface, which has a semihydrophobic construction.
Abstract: The invention relates to a device for discharging liquid from a tank, having a line section which is formed on a tank-side end region for a fluid connection with the tank and which line section comprises a discharge opening on a discharge-side end region lying opposite the tank-side end region, a feed unit for gas which is provided on the line section and via which gas can be introduced into the line section, a line shut-off valve for shutting off the line section and which is provided on the line section between the tank-side end region and the discharge-side end region, and a residue removal line which branches off at a branch-off from the line section and runs at a run-in back into the line section, whereby the branch-off is arranged between the tank-side end region and the line shut-off valve on the line section, and whereby the run-in is arranged between the line shut-off valve and the discharge-side end region.
Abstract: The invention relates to a method and a sensor for determining the hydrocarbon dew point in a gas, in particular in a gaseous fuel. According to the invention a roughened condensation surface is provided on a planar measurement surface of a transparent body. Light is shone onto the roughened condensation surface through the transparent body and the intensity of the light reflected back into the transparent body is measured. The hydrocarbon dew point temperature can be inferred from changes in the intensity of the light which is reflected back when heating or cooling the condensation surface.
Abstract: The invention relates to a device for detecting an amount while receiving and/or discharging a fluid having a gas portion comprising a measurement line for conducting the fluid, a flow measuring unit for the fluid, which is in fluid connection with the measurement line, a degree of filling measuring unit for the fluid, which is in fluid connection with the measurement line and which comprises an electrode arrangement for determining electrical properties of the fluid present in the measurement line, and an evaluation unit for determining the fluid amount conveyed which is in a signal connection with the degree of filling measuring unit and the flow measuring unit. According to the invention it is provided that the electrode arrangement of the degree of filling measuring unit has a plurality of electrode plates which form a plate stack in the region of the measurement line.
