Non-nuclear density meters
Alia Instruments is a builder of production monitoring equipment for the maritime and mining industry. Our innovative non-nuclear slurry density meter offers accurate real-time data, allowing clients to truly optimize their production while eliminating the costs of RSO certifications and the disposal of hazardous materials.
The working principle of the Alia Density Meter (ADM) for slurry is based on the second law of Newton. The Force and Acceleration of the slurry flowing through the full volume of the pipeline is measured. With this a direct and accurate figure for the density is calculated.
It is a very simple method that only needs a simple and robust system. This suits perfectly with the demanding environment and applications in which the ADM is used.
Made to measure
