  • Patent number: 9541515
    Abstract: A characterization apparatus for characterizing a liquid containing insoluble particles includes a housing including an inlet portion defining an inlet passage between an inlet end and a first channel end, a channel portion defining a measurement channel between the first channel end and a second channel end, and an outlet portion defining an outlet passage between the second channel end and an outlet end. The channel portion includes a first electrode and a second electrode at a first and second side of the channel. The apparatus also includes a measurement device configured for measuring an electric measure representative for properties of the liquid flowing between the first electrode and the second electrode. The inlet passage gradually changes shape from the inlet end to the first channel end. The outlet passage gradually changes shape from the second channel end to the outlet end.
