Abstract

This paper describes work which has been carried out at Harwell to develop a method of determining the endpoint of a mixing process by monitoring the ultrasound which is produced. The method is has been shown to work on a wide variety of industrial mixing processes ranging from dry powders to slurries.

The paper also lists other processes such as extrusion, wire drawing and the detection of tramp material which can be monitored by this ultrasonic technique.
