The ITS flow loop in our R&D lab

New Flow Loop Investment at ITS

ITS has ambitious plans for both product development and for working closely with our customers on demanding applications.

A key part of the infrastructure to support these plans is our investment in a new flow loop. This was custom engineered to ITS’ demanding requirements and was installed in our lab in summer 2022. It has already been used in a wide variety of projects.

Key specification parameters are:

  • Flow in 25mm, 50mm and 100mm (1”, 2” and 4”) pipes
  • Agitation tank to make up slurry suspensions, with 1400 RPM mixer.
  • 3 x high power submersible pumps to control flow rate (15 to 111 m3/hr, 66GPM to 488 GPM (US gallons)
  • Sight glass so we can see what is flowing into the tomography system / Dens-Itometer under test
  • Conductivity compensation conductivity meter
  • Slurry separation tank for clearing up after test.
  • Electromagnetic flow meter

“This is an important addition to our laboratory and is already fully scheduled for tests and evaluation work of our new development into Summer 2023.”
