BIODE, INC.: This company has introduced a new low-shear-rate version of its solid-state ViSmart™ viscosity sensor. Designed to instantaneously measure samples of low- to mid-range viscosity fluids, the sensor provides continuous, real-time, in-line viscosity measurements for in-line process control systems that require high resolution and accuracy. The new sensor is 1.3 × 1.1 × 0.4 in. and weighs only 4 oz. It has no moving parts, and it is sealed so it can be completely immersed in the process stream where it is unaffected by vibration or flow conditions. The sensor simultaneously measures fluid viscosity from 1 to 500 centipoise and temperatures up to 125°C, and requires no field calibration. Call 207.856.6977 or visit
