CiDRA announced that it has entered a channel partner agreement with iKontrol, based in Izmir, Turkey. iKontrol will be one of the representatives of CiDRA’s SONARtrac® range of flow meters in the European minerals processing sector. This extension of coverage aligns well with CiDRA’s strategy for growth in this region and commitment to provide process optimization solutions and support across Europe.

CiDRA’s line of SONARtrac process flow measurement systems provide accurate and reliable flow measurements for mining applications, as well as other industrial process applications. Their non-contact design translates into long life, no maintenance, no recalibration, improved safety, and enhanced operational effectiveness for the monitoring of industrial flow processes. CiDRA’s SONARtrac model VF/GVF system with Phase Fraction Management (PFM), provides a unique dual measurement capability, flow and air content (gas void fraction) in slurries and fluids, leading to effectively supporting an operation’s production and recovery initiatives.

iKontrol Managing Director Sebati Yilmaz said: “The opportunity to represent CiDRA and their SONARtrac technology is excellent, as it will allow both companies to be able to reach and support a wider range of minerals processing applications and properly support customers to successfully implement process optimization technologies.”

Ralf Dopieralla, CiDRA’s regional director for Europe, is very pleased to have iKontrol on board.

He says: “iKontrol has a proven track record of providing customers with effective solutions using process control systems and instruments from the world’s leading manufacturers, and their technical knowledge and support align very well with CiDRA’s dedication to world-class service and support.”
