Definition of Inline measurement:
Inline measurement implies that sensors or instruments are situated in a flow-through system, e.g., on board a ship, in which water is pumped from the outside. The advantages of "inline" measurements are:
  • The sensors are well protected and therefore have a longer lifetime
  • The calibration of the sensors is more stable and the calibration procedure is easier
  • Biofouling can easily be prevented by applying chemical methods (cleaning).
Inline measurement is closely related to in situ measurement.
This is the common definition for Inline measurement, other definitions can be discussed in the article
