Best Flow meters for Slurry & Sludge flow measurement Solutions.
The slurry flow meter is mainly used to measure the volume flow of sludge and mud in pipelines. Such as cement slurry, mud, paper pulp, various acids, alkalis, salt solutions, food pulp and so on.
The most commonly used slurry flowmeter is an electromagnetic flowmeter. Portable ultrasonic flow meters and mass flow meters can also be selected.
Slurry flow meters are widely used in sewage treatment, environmental protection industry. Municipal management, river dredging and other fields also need slurry flow solutions.
Sino-Inst supplies a wide range of flow meters for slurry&sludge flow measurement, if you need any further help or information, please contact us.

Features of Slurry Flow Measurement
Slurry is a semi-colloidal suspension of tiny particles of clay dispersed in water and mixed with water. In colloid chemistry, solid clay is called dispersed or solid phase, and water is called medium or liquid phase. If the solid phase disperses molecules and ions, there is no homogeneous body at the phase interface between the solid phase and the liquid phase, which is called a true solution. Such as the solution of common salt dissolved in water. For example, the particles dispersed in the liquid phase are composed of many molecules. Although the particles are very small, there is a phase interface. Such a mixture is called a colloid solution. Various commonly used glues belong to this category. If it is similar to a colloidal solution, but more than 40% of the solid particles are larger than 0.2 μm (1 μm = 0.001 mm), it is called a semi-colloid or suspension. Slurry belongs to this semi-colloidal suspension.
- Velocity and contour. Keep the balance of the solid movement, but not too fast.
- The amount of solids in the carrier liquid.
- The nature of the solid in the carrier liquid. They have many qualities, including shape and size.
- The chemical composition of the fluid. Lining of corrosive liquids.
- Strong abrasive. Rough solids can cause system noise and interfere with measurements. If necessary, an abrasive lining can be used.
Electromagnetic Flow Meter for Slurry Measurement
A Magnetic flow meter, also called electromagnetic flow meter, mag flow meter, or magmeters. A magnetic flow meter is a volumetric flow meter that works with principle of magnetic technology. Magnetic flow meters do not have any moving parts. An electromagnetic flowmeter consists of two parts: Electrode (sensor) and Transmitter. Installation types of magmeters could be: Compact, remote, insertion.
Electromagnetic flow meters, also called mag meters or magnetic meters. Magnetic Flow Meters are volumetric flow meters. Mag meter is ideal for wastewater applications, or any dirty liquid which is conductive or water based. Accuracy over a wide flow range can be as good as ± 0.5% of flow rate or better.
Ultrasonic Flow Meter for Slurry Measurement
Ultrasonic flow meters are non-intrusive type liquid flow meters. Ultrasonic flowmeter measures the flow by detecting the effect of fluid flow on an ultrasonic beam (or ultrasonic pulse). There are two types of ultrasonic flow meter technologies: Doppler shift and transit-time. Ultrasonic flowmeters measure the fluid flow rate in a pipe. With the sound waves transit time principle to determine the flow rate. Ultrasonic flow meters, with easy installation, could be clamp on, handheld, and portable.

Ultrasonic flow meters, with easy installation, could be clamp on, handheld, and portable. Ultrasonic meters are ideal for liquid applications. Like: water, wastewater, Fuel, applications or any dirty liquid in the pipe. And for Natural Gas flow measurement, SI-3404 Ultrasonic Gas Flow Meter is a new type flow meter.
Coriolis Flow Meter for Slurry Measurement
Coriolis mass flow meter also called micro motion flow meter. Coriolis mass flow meter is the mass flow meter beasd on the coriolis force. Coriolis mass flow meter and thermal mass flow meter are the most common mass flow meters. Corolis mass flow meters are best choice for all process and custody transfer (CT) applications. Coriolis mass flow meter can measure different values at the same time. Mass, volume flow, density and concentration measurement of liquids and gases. This is the most important difference among Coriolis mass flow meter, DP and oval gear flow meters.
Mass Flow meters for all industrial flow measurement. Coriolis mass flow meters and Thermal mass flow meters. Coriolis Mass flowmeters are ideal for liquid flow measuring applications. And Thermal Mass flowmeters are for compressed gas applications. Thermal mass flow meters are available in types of in-line, insertion, and remote mount transmitter
Selection of Flow Meter
What Flowmeter Will Work Best for Your Application
From single-use to magnetic to variable-area to Coriolis, the options in flowmeters are plentiful. Yet there are distinct differences in functionality, accuracy, and certainly price. Ultrasonic sensors that accurately and non-invasively measure through commonly used tubing is an excellent multi-use option that is positioned on the higher end of the price scale. If low unit price is desirable without sacrificing accuracy, then single-use turbine type sensors are a good option particularly if working fluid is low viscosity. If higher viscosity working fluids are involved, the single-use flow through disposable ultrasonic sensors are the best fit.
When selecting a flow meter consideration must be given to:
- Flow measurement type – momentum (velocity), volumetric or mass flow measurement
- Media – type of media (liquid, gas or slurry) and any special condition such as particulates in the media and viscosity of the media
- Media conditions – pressure and temperature of media and whether media conditions are likely to remain constant or vary
- Flow range – required flow range of media (min and max readings required)
- Accuracy – required accuracy of the readings
- Environmental considerations – special installation considerations such as hygienic installation, installing in to an ATEX zone or requiring tamper proof readings
