The determination of flow regimes and gas holdup (e. g. in pipes) is a frequently encountered problem in process diagnostics. A wire-mesh sensor can solve this task comprehensively. Wire-mesh sensors are robust and allow a detailed analysis of flow structure with high temporal and spatial resolution.
The investigation of multiphase flows can also be done with non-intrusive tomographic imaging techniques. HZDR disposes of an ultrafast X-ray tomography system, which achieves frame rates of up to 8,000 images per second for scanning transient flows up to 3 m/s and a high-resolution gamma ray tomography scanner for time-averaged cross-sectional imaging. Both systems can be employed for customer-specific flow investigations.Learn more about how the wire-mesh sensor works
