MiniSonic ISD; & PSD
The Ultraflux range of Minisonic Interface, Sphere and Pig Detectors are predominantly used in the downstream oil and gas industry
The MINISONIC ISD measures the speed of sound in a liquid (or gas) product. The measured value is a precise characteristic of the product which is asssociated with its density. For both models PSD & ISD, the ultrasonic path is interrupted by the passage of a sphere (product separator) or pig even when they are travelling at high speed.
Early warning of approaching interface of hydrocarbon products in a pipeline of refined or crude petroleum products : analysis of density, concentration and speed of sound.
Detection of spheres or pigs
Pipe sizes : 4'' to 60''
Programmable measurement range 500-2000 m/s
Wide range of fluids with possibility of measurement on gas (insertion probe)
MINISONIC ISD & PSD DESCRIPTION
Using advanced acoustic-signal processing, MINISONIC ISD & PSD use the signals of the associated probe to track :
The change of products in the pipeline : ISD
The passages of spheres or pigs : PSD & ISD
