    Monitor Dredging Slurry Flow

    Thousands of dredges are operated to maintain navigation channels in our rivers, lakes and harbours and to mine sand and gravel for the construction industry. Managing and optimizing production from a dredge requires continuous monitoring of pipeline pressure, vacuum and slurry velocity. The operating conditions are extremely harsh and any sensing components in contact with the abrasive slurry can be damaged. But dredge operators need accurate real-time flow information to properly manage production so equipment manufacturers have been seeking innovative monitoring solutions...

    Water Monitoring and Flow Measurement Systems for Water Supply

    Although there is enough water on earth, its uneven distribution, the rising population and our carelessness drinking water starts to get short. In the future more and more pipelines for drinking water will be built all over the globe. In order to operate huge and complex pipe networks efficiently, water flow measurement and flow monitoring will become necessary. The increasing efficiency of ultrasonic flow meters will make such calculations more and more effective.

    Soil density, hardness, lithology, and sediment particle size distribution can create slurry of variable makeup and density. At a constant pump speed, the slurry will have a variable flow velocity, which is undesirable and potentially dangerous. If the velocity is too low, there is a risk of sand outs in the pipeline. If the velocity is too high, the pump will wear and be inefficient. Traditional velocity flow meters with wetted parts are prone to wear, causing measurement inaccuracies, and require frequent, costly replacements. In addition, the presence of entrained gases may disturb the readings of traditional flowmeters and cause slurry density measurements to be inaccurate.

  • Dye Tracing

    Monitoring the dilution and movement of a tracer introduced into the water column provides an excellent means of determining the path that may be followed by a discharge and the rate at which dilution is likely to take place. Fluorescent dyes such as Rhodamine, Fluorescein or Agma are the most frequently used tracers for such investigations. Chelsea Technologies has been providing dye tracing systems for over 30 years. Typical applications include sub-sea pipeline leak detection, pollution studies, natural water flow analysis (rivers, lakes, ocean currents, cave water flows, groundwater filtration etc), sewer and storm water drainage analysis. The Chelsea systems can be configured for a wide variety of tracers, are highly sensitive, robust, and deliver real-time data. They can be moored, profiled, towed or affixed to ROV / AUV platforms.
