SONARtrac HD Series Process Flow and Entrained Air Measurement System
SONARtrac® HD Series Process Flow and Entrained Air Measurement System with Phase Fraction Management for Mineable Oilsands
SONARtrac HD Series systems offer a compelling economic value and a superior technical solution to measuring flow and entrained air content in aggressive, dynamically complex flow applications in the mineable oilsands. The HD system, like the VF/GVF-100 system for homogeneous slurries, clamps onto existing pipe, including lined pipes, does not "pinch" the flow and has no wetted parts, thereby maintaining the full integrity of the piping system and ensuring measurement certainty. SONARtrac non-contact flow systems have delivered improved accuracy over existing in-line flowmeters, thereby enabling more accurate and reliable mass balance measurements
As well, CIDRA’s patented passive sonar, non-contact technology provides dual measurement capability of the volumetric flow and air content (gas void fraction (GVF) in slurries and liquids. This unique combination finally enables true phase fraction management leading to unprecedented improvement in process efficiencies and operations.
Whether used to correct total volumetric flow in bubbly flows, correcting the measurement error in density meters for a more accurate mass balance or for detecting the cause of process flow upsets, SONARtrac PFM delivers both top and bottom line value for thousands of customers around the world.
