The Echo Acoustic Sand Detector monitors solid particles in gas and fluid flow.
Employing ultrasonic technology the Echo detects acoustic noise generated by sand and other particles when they collide into the walls of pipeline and notify operator if their concentration reaches minimum acceptable level.
Being the next generation of smart instruments the Echo uses digital signal processing algorithms to provide real time data to operator.
The output signals from the Echo sand detector are transmitted directly to a control system for online data monitoring via SIIS Level 2 or SIIS Level 3 communication protocols.
The Echo non-intrusive device can be easily tied into any existing system or implemented into new pipeline installation.
ESPs Acoustic sand detector is recommended to be installed in combination with our erosion-corrosion detectors to minimize sand intrusion (the main cause of erosion corrosion), detect early signs of corrosion and extend life of pipelines.
