Density Tester is a device used for measuring the density of solid, liquid and gaseous substances. Density is a vital physical indicator that provides indications regarding the quality, concentration, purity and other critical parameters of a substance. Density Tester is a device which measures, records and reports results of density tests conducted on different substances. The density tester may report the values in a real-time setting or at a later time that is pre-determined. Many different density tester devices, also known as density meters, use different technologies for conducting density tests, depending on the state and type of the material to be tested. For example, solids such as fine powders, flakes or granules are often tested using a tapped density tester. This type of density tester measures the tapped density (also known as bulk density) of powdered solids. Tapped density measurement using a density tester is of importance for analyzing flowability of powders. Given the need of accurate measurement of important physical parameters such as density in industrial production set-ups, a wide variety of national and international standards are applicable to the density tester equipment and testing methods, based on the product to be measured and the conditions in which it is tested. Apart from such physical devices, density tester technologies such electronic & sensor based (including ultrasonic density tester, microwave density tester etc.) and nuclear are also used.
Considering these aspects of the Density Tester, the study of the trends and forecasts of the Density Tester market becomes an important read.

A density tester is a critical piece of equipment as it provides accurate measurement of density, which in turn is vital for maintaining raw material and product quality in many industries. Density tester used for measuring density of solids in powder, grains or flake forms is widely used to ascertain the optimum packing volume. In the plastics industry, density tester is used to measure different parameters of raw material such as bulk factor, density and pourability. In many cases, physical methods and density tester equipment are used to ascertain the density of plastic films for industrial application. Density tester is used to make accurate measurements of density for various substances in the food &beverages, pharmaceutical and chemical industry, to ensure raw materials and semi-processed materials are of desired quality, because changes in material quality (reflected in density changes) can hamper the quality of final product. Density test results emanating from a density tester are used to monitor and control processes and product outcomes in chemical industry, with density measurement being an adept way to check parameters such as percent by weight, percent by volume, Molarity, Normality, etc. In the petroleum industry, density measurement forms the core of crude oil trade volume, as measurements from the density tester are used to calculate the API gravity for produced crude oil. These density and thereby API gravity data is then used to calculate the number of barrels of crude per metric ton, thus giving the density tester a pivotal role in crude oil trade and custody transfer operations. The market for density tester is thus projected to witness increasing demand from end users Oil & Gas and Petrochemical, Chemicals, Food & Beverages and Pharmaceuticals.
