Measuring Mined Materials On-Site

While density meters are necessary in a variety of industries to monitor slurries as well as being used for billing purposes, etc., most meters currently on the market either suffer from poor accuracy, potentially dangerous parts, or both. In most cases, slurries are pumped through a pipe, measured, and create an inferred reading from the sample. In the case of grab sampling, samples are taken out of the slurry and taken to a lab for measurement, which results in a long turnaround time. With the new real-time, non-nuclear density meter, the density of the entire sludge/slurry can be read with both high-accuracy and repeatability without the use of dangerous materials.
