Abstract [en]

The in-line assessment of the rheological properties of fluids in chemical, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and food industries is fundamental for process optimization and product quality. The rheology of a fluid in a process pipe can be investigated by combining the measured pressure difference over a fixed distance of pipe, and the velocity distribution of the fluid along the diameter. The latter data can be measured by Pulsed Ultrasound Velocimetry (PUV), which is a non-invasive Doppler technique. Till now, the few systems available need cumbersome electronics or computer for data post-processing and are not suitable for industrial applications. In this work we present a compact (10 × 12 cm), fully programmable and low cost system that embeds the ultrasound front-end and all of the digital electronics necessary for the signal processing. The board produces, in real time, 512-point velocity profiles at 45 Hz rate and is integrated in the Flow-VizTM platform (SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden).
