Non-nuclear density meter at hopper dredger KB1649

Posted on Friday, 24 November 2017 at 02:11

Beens Dredging took the non-nuclear density meter of Rhosonics into use on their new hopper dredger kb1649 during a project in the port of Amsterdam a month ago. The customer wanted a non-nuclear density meter to determine the real-time density of the sludge.

The SDM slurry density meter is a good solution for this measuring task, because of its reliable, stable and real-time measurement results. The SDM contributes to the dredging operation and offers many advantages thanks to its ultrasonic technology.

In the port of Amsterdam, a certain amount of sludge needed to be removed from the port to ensure a safe passage for ships. The SDM contributes to:

  • Determination of the optimal dredging condition
  • Efficient completion of the dredging session
  • Reduction of time and money spent on a project
  • Quicker response to changing process conditions
  • Less obstruction of the pump
