Easily measure the concentration of sludges or slurries without the reading being affected by color using the Markland Model 502 Suspended Solids Meter. It uses the attenuation of ultrasound to read the concentration. The meter can be mounted in open top tanks or pipelines. It measures slurries that are too thick for optical methods. Ultrasound is inherently safe so it requires no permits or regulatory approvals to operate.
