technology provides a non-intrusive and robust way to accurately and
repeatedly measure a wide range of singlephase and multiphase flows,
including pulp slurry, sewage, and flows with entrained air.
emerging technology is based on sonar techniques used for decades in
submarine tracking and other underwater acoustic applications. CiDRA, which
introduced its SONARtrackô flowmeters in October 2003, developed it for
the highly demanding oil and gas production
CiDRA is still the only manufacturer offering sonar flow
processing captures two measurements: 1) volumetric flow rate (phase
fraction) monitoring turbulent eddies and 2) compositional (sound speed)
detecting the speed at which sound waves propagate through the fluid within
some conventional flowmeter technologies (e.g. differential pressure,
turbine) that create pressure drops by introducing obstructions, sonar
measurement measures naturally occurring turbulence, eliminating pressure
loss and clogging.
applications for sonar include:
Oil & gas
Oil sands processing
Paper & pulp
Water and wastewater
Food and beverage Industry
