Rhosonics develops, manufactures and supplies in-line measuring instruments based on ultrasonic technology. Since the company was founded in 1992, the company has continuously focused on the development and improvement of the ultrasonic measurement technologies for a variety of applications. At Rhosonics, we believe that we can offer a measurement solution for virtually all process liquids in any industry.
RHOSONICS SDM: SLURRY DENSITY METER
NON-NUCLEAR DENSITY MEASUREMENT
Rhosonics introduces the newest generation non-nuclear density meter, the SDM Slurry Density Meter. This instrument is suitable for real-time density measurement in all kinds of slurries. The product uses sustainable ultrasonic technology and is specifically designed for dredging and mineral processing applications after ten years of experience with the predecessor, the model 9690 density meter. The SDM uses a non-intrusive ultrasonic sensor to measure the real-time density of mineral slurries under high density levels and at very large pipes.
By measuring the acoustic impedance of a slurry, the SDM calculates the density of the slurry real-time during the process. The sensor is made of stainless steel and ceramic material. Because of the new sensor material, the sensor has lots of better properties. By making use of ceramics material, the ultrasonic signal is more brightful and powerful than before. Also, the sensor is more wear resistant than its predecessor, model 9690. Installation is easy and can be done by means of wafer cells, spool pieces or a weld-on piece (weldolet). The weldolet technology is a low-cost solution, especially for larger pipe sizes, since this method only requires a small hole in the existing pipe.
Typical application such as :
- mining (thickener, cyclone feed, & etc)
- washing plant
- cement concrete
