Non-Nuclear Density Meters

Red Meters unveiled the RM Series, non-nuclear density meters. Coated with an abrasion-resistant liner to withstand rough and finely ground slurries, the RM3 is easily installed into the slurry pipeline. A Class 2 industrial laser reads passing materials continuously, which is then interpreted by the systemís algorithm and displayed on the monitoring interface.

Density is calculated with an accuracy of +/- 0.25% based on samples taken 50 times per second. The HMI touchscreen output can be set to display different variables in numerical or graph form, including: density, pressure, percent solids, totalized mass, and more. The RM3 is designed to accommodate an internal pipe bore of 2 to 60 in. in diameter with a maximum pressure of 600 psi. Replacing a nuclear meter with an RM3 increases accuracy readings by 2.5%, the company reported.
