Improving Slurry Flow Measurements

Many manufacturing processes including pulp & paper, oil & gas hydraulic fracturing, mining and others have solids mixed in with the process fluid flows. These slurry flow applications are challenging to accurately and reliably measure.

This quick 2:47 YouTube video, Introducing the Rosemount Slurry Magnetic Flow Meter explains how the solids particles in the fluid stream create noise in the signal in traditional magnetic flow meters, a.k.a. magmeters for short. These traditional magmeters used analog damping to smooth out the signals. The downside of this approach is a sluggish signal into the control strategy which affects overall controllability.

The new Rosemount Slurry magmeter consists of an MS slurry sensor and an 8782 transmitter. Together they provide advanced signal processing, diagnostics and enhanced coil drive techniques to provide a stable flow signal without the need for analog signal damping.

Advanced process diagnostics and Smart Meter Verification provide greater insight into the flow meter installation, the surrounding process and magmeter health. Troubleshooting and environmental compliance reporting is also greatly simplified.
