SCIAM Worldwide has introduced an innovation set to transform density measurement of slurries in processing applications.
The in-line, continuous density meter, DM3©, calculates density by measuring direct mass over a known volume within a flow tube. By directly calculating density rather than inferring or estimation, this technology improves the accuracy, value for money and environmental viability of sensor and mass flow systems. Originally designed to replace obsolete technologies for the mining and dredging industries, the DM3© has proven to be safer and more cost effective than hazardous nuclear techniques or inefficient auto-sampling within any slurry processing operation.
This refreshingly green alternative is suitable for the density measurement of countless industries including water and waste, paper manufacturing, power, oil, food and beverage processing and fracking. The DM3© effortlessly measures abrasive media thanks to its highly resilient gum-rubber lined flow tube with customization options for high pressure and extreme temperature applications.
Early adopters include industry leaders looking to improve their bottom line by utilizing SCIAM’s cutting edge technology. An example of the density measurement systems use is the calculation of % dry solids of zircon slurry in a mining application in the north of Florida. The DM3© is also implemented to measure mass flow and density of waste sludge as it is transported from sewage lagoons in waste processing operations of major US cities. By replacing nuclear density meters and auto samplers, early adopters benefit from an increase in accuracy of more than 2.5% resulting in millions of dollars of savings and an immeasurable increase in safety and efficiency.
SCIAM Worldwide, located in the heart of Florida, is managed by business professionals, working closely with renowned engineers and scientists with decades of expertise ranging from Harvard University to NASA. This dynamic combination has enabled SCIAM to develop, patent and manufacture a technically advanced, user and environmentally friendly density measurement system, breaking the molds of historical methodology.
