ALIA’s density meter for slurries offers accurate real-time data, allowing you to truly optimise production while eliminating the costs of special certifications and the disposal of hazardous materials.
This is innovative, simple and is a robust non-nuclear density meter.
ADVANTAGES OF ALIA INSTRUMENTS
ADVANTAGES OF USING A NON-NUCLEAR DENSITY METER
Traditionally density of slurries has been measured using gamma meters. This radioactive source results in numerous practical drawbacks.
The ALIA Density Meter is an electromechanical alternative to support the operator to control and enhance the production.
It offers a quick and accurate measurement of the density of slurries and can be easily with existing with existing flow meters and control systems.
ALIA’s Density Meter is positioned in-line in the slurry pipeline. The density, defined as the slurry mass per volume unit, is measured under dynamic conditions.
Inside the density meter, an actuator exerts a force with a known value and frequency onto the slurry, while an accelerometer measures its resulting acceleration.
The mass of the slurry is determined using Newton’s second law of motion. The slurry volume is a known factor in the measuring tube of the meter. Regardless of pipe diameter or slurry composition, the measured slurry density is nearly immediate and accurate.
