WALLINGFORD, Conn.--()--CiDRA Oilsands announced today that the largest known full-bore, non-contact flowmeter in the mineable oilsands industry was successfully installed by CiDRA. The 54” SONARtrac® system was installed on a recycle water line (RCW), where the meter will measure the flow of recycle water, which is the top layer (water) in the tailings pond. The recycle water is removed and transferred into a newly created pond, out of which some is diverted for plant operation.
Since it began serving the oilsands industry in 2003, CiDRA has successfully launched a series of innovative products and services, based on SONARtrac®, SANDtrac™ and SMARTring™ technologies, that have been tailored to meet the unique challenges of its customers involved in mineable oilsands operations. These solutions help enable customers to enhance recovery production and resource sustainability.
CiDRA is headquartered in Wallingford, Connecticut with an increasing number of international offices. CiDRA’s patented SONARtrac® flow technology has established itself as a new class of industrial flowmeter, utilizing measurement principles that are distinct from all other flowmeter technologies operating today and is ideally suited for measuring flow in difficult slurry applications within the energy and natural resource industries. CiDRA has been aggressively developing various service offerings related to flow management and assurance, slurry rheology characterization, slurry sand bed detection pipeline integrity and overall plant monitoring and process optimization in mining, oilsands and pulp and paper applications.
