Features of the SDM (3)

This is the third blog about the features and benefits of the non-nuclear Slurry Density Meter (SDM). In the first two blogs we shared information about the non-nuclear aspects of the SDM. In this blog you can read about the compact and lightweight design and the easy operation.

Compact design

The non-nuclear Slurry Density Meter (SDM) has an ergonomic and modular design. It is a very compact device, therefore it easily fits into the process of the client. Compared to other (nuclear and non-nuclear) technologies, the SDM is a very light weighted and robust product.

The SDM consists of three parts: the transmitter, mounted to the sensor cell by a triclamp, and the installation method. There are no cables between the sensor and electronics, which is a huge benefit. The SDM has its sensor, analyser, communication and software integrated in just one system. This all-in-one device is easily mounted to the pipe and does not intrude the slurry. Furthermore, the sensor is made of the most durable and abrasion resistant materials for a long service life and low maintenance needs.

Short lead-time

Because of the compact design, it can easily be transported and the transport costs are low compared to other technologies. Also, compared to nuclear devices the SDM has a very fast delivery time, due to the fact that the device doesn’t require any licenses or special transport. Therefore the purchasing costs are relatively low.

Easy operation

The SDM is easy to operate by push buttons which are suitable for gloves. The software is very simple and user friendly. Water calibration is already done in the factory, so in most cases, only a high density (slurry) calibration is required to get started.
