There are multiple reasons for measuring density, which may differ per application. It is important to control the process, because if this process is incorrectly managed, this may lead to additional costs and have a negative effect on the profitability and sustainability of the operation.
Density measurement is usually done by radiation-based measuring devices. This technology has been used in the mineral processing industry for decades. However, nowadays government regulations are getting stricter, and more nuclear density meters are being replaced by alternatives. These alternatives can do the same job, without administration costs and health and safety risks related to the nuclear source.
The SDM eliminates all costs, health and safety risks related to the radiation source. The device is easy-to-use, has no need for any license and provides reliable density values to monitor and improve the production output.
