take the guesswork out of your process
Dredging operations, whether on land or sea, rely largely on guesswork during the monitoring process. With current density meters, there is no accurate way to determine the amount of solids passing through the pipe nor measure the concentration of the slurry. With abrasive media and significant vibration profiles affecting a meter, it can cause the instrumentation to lose accuracy.
Accurately measuring data in real-time is now possible with the Red Meters’ custom, durable design – fit to maximize dredging efficiency for your process controllers. The Red Meters’ sustainable build is key in eliminating the problems of abrasive slurries and vibration profiles on readings. Our vibration compensation algorithm empowers our system to remove the effects of vibration from its own density readings and will compensate the desired outcomes of all instrumentation connected to the electronics.
