ITS Dens-Itometer. Density without nuclear source
Industrial Tomography Systems from England has developed a nuclear free density meter based on conductivity. MSA-Service assisted with the development of the instrumentation.
The instrument is supplied as a pipe based sensor and a standard IP67 instrument enclosure (600x600x300mm).
On installation, the system is easily calibrated to deliver a concentration measurement based on the volume of solids flowing in the pipe.
Concentration data is provided as a simple 4-20mA signal and where density is required the specific gravity of the solids can be used to convert the volumetric concentration.
The instrument can self-adjust to changes in process conditions. The DENS-ITOMETER has been tested on slurry conveying with 100,000s of tonnes of materials having been processed and delivering data consistent with gamma densitometers. It has also been deployed in food processing as a basis for measuring solids content in pipelines.
Once fitted, the DENS-ITOMETER “Gamma Buster” does not require specially trained personnel, nor does it have a nuclear source that will need changing or maintenance.
ITS can provide advice on system suitability for particular processes, commissioning and technical support as required.
