Working principle of measurement technique
The DensX measures mud densities between 1.0 T/m³ and 1.5 T/m³ with an accuracy of 0.25 %. The technology is based on X-ray and is a direct measurement method. With a sampling speed of 10 Hz the system supports fast profiling. The X-ray technology does not suffer from strong legislation restrictions like radioactive density measurement systems. The system weighs 70 kg and is able to deeply intrude into soft sediment layers.
