:: Continuous In-Line Density Meter Launched for Mining Industry

SCIAM Worldwide has introduced an innovation set to transform density measurement of slurries within the mining industry. 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. The DM3© has proven to be safer and more cost effective than hazardous nuclear techniques or inefficient auto-sampling within any slurry processing operation.

The DM3© effortlessly measures abrasive media thanks to its highly resilient gum-rubber lined flow tube with customizable options for high pressure and extreme temperature applications. Designed for optimal use within mining applications, the DM3 is insensitive to plant vibrations, noise, vacuum and temperature. Continuous readings of the slurry occur 110 times per second with a 45 millisecond data response time giving a truly representative sample of production volume and efficiency data.

Early adopters include industry leaders looking to improve their bottom line by utilizing SCIAMís cutting edge technology. An example of the density measurement systems use is the calculation of % dry solids of zircon slurry in the north of Florida as well as the density of phosphate sludge in a leading phosphate mine. 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.

Each unit is custom designed and manufactured within the United States and distributed throughout the globe. Certified by CE, UL, NTEP and IECEE with directly NIST traceable measurements, this proven technology is positioned to be the industryís leading density measurement instrument.

SCIAM Worldwide 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.
