Sallehuddin Ibrahim, Mohd Amri Md Yunus, Mohd Taufiq Md Khairi . Flow Imaging in a Vertical Gravity Flow Rig using Optical Tomography. International Conference on Recent Developments in Science, Technology, Humanities and Management. ICRDSTHM2017, 1 (April 2018), 1-4.
Process industries need a system that can image flow so that they can monitor the effectiveness of their process plant as well as detect any possible leakage or damages that might occur. This paper presents an optical tomography system which made use of infrared sensors to monitor the concentration profiles of solid flow in air conveyed by a vertical gravity flow rig. Several tests were conducted involving single pixel flow, multiple pixels flow, half flow and full flow. The results showed that the system is capable of providing vital information on the flow inside the rig in the form of concentration profiles.
