Features of the SDM (4)

Posted on Wednesday, 2 September 2020 at 09:08

In the last couple of weeks, we have shared some of the features and benefits of the non-nuclear Slurry Density Meter (SDM). Some of the discussed features are: it is a non-nuclear density meter based on ultrasonic technology, it is is safe for health and environment and it is a compact and lightweight design with easy operation. In this blog you can read about the pipe orientation and the high flexibility for the installation point.

All pipe orientations

There are no pipe orientation restrictions, which is a great advantage over other density meters. The device can be mounted in all pipe orientations, whether it is horizonal, vertical or diagonal. You can install the device everywhere as long as it is mounted in a 45° angle from the bottom of the pipe.

High flexibility for the installation point

The SDM measures on the interface between the pipe and the slurry. Therefore, the SDM has a high flexibility for the place of installation, allowing it to be installed in-line or side mounted in a tank, for example. It is not necessary to measure through the cross section of the pipe, which gives it the unique feature to measure in half-filled pipes as well. This is not possible with other technologies, since most of these technologies require a full pipe.

No special pipe supports needed

The SDM technology is not influenced by vibrations, therefore the device doesn’t require any special pipe support system to exclude ambient vibrations. Prior to installation, you only need to choose a spot where the slurry mixture is representative and homogeneous, and then you are all set for installation.
