For the dredging industry, real-time monitoring of the slurry density is important to calculate the production output and prevent problems with valuable equipment such as pumps. Normally, the density is measured through the use of radiation-based technologies. However, environmental concerns and regulations for the safe use of nuclear instruments is making it more difficult to handle this equipment. Rhosonics offers a solution to measure density by means of ultrasonic technology, to improve the production output, while reducing operational costs and creating a safer environment for employees.
The way of density measurement is based on the acoustic impendance of the slurry in question. The SDM Slurry Density Meter is used by dredging companies for reliable measurement of the dredging slurry. Please learn more about the specific applications in our case studies.
