Dynamic imaging of flowing multiphase mixtures

An instrumentation and data recognition system has been developed to allow rapid imaging (100 frame/s) of electrically conducting liquids, slurries and emulsions. The method is based on electrical resistance tomography, and enables visualization of conductivity profiles within one or more cross sections in a process pipe or reactor. The sensor electrodes are robust and low cost. Imaging allows optimization of process design and a means of validating fluid flow models.
