Flow and entrained air percent measurements

SONARtrac passive sonar flow meters wrap around the outside of a process pipe and performs two fundamental and independent measurements, key to the accurate measurement of process flows – volumetric flow and entrained air percent. Because SONARtrac flow meters do not come into contact with the process slurry they provide high reliability thereby contributing to increased accuracy, increased process uptime and lower measurement costs.

FLOW MEASUREMENT

Oil sands and bitumen slurries are the most challenging multiphase flows, presenting numerous measurement and reliability challenges for flow instrumentation today. In-line flow measurement approaches are intrusive and subject to wear, affecting measurement certainty. Some critical processes are not instrumented at all. In addition, there is no practical way to measure a key process variable – entrained air. That is until now. CiDRA’s SONARtrac Volumetric Flow and Entrained Air Measurement Technology is specifically designed to measure aggressive multiphase and single phase slurries and fluids.
