The VEGA Multi-Point Density Array (MDA) Solution for Separation Applications


The VEGA Multi-Point Density Array (MDA) solution for fixed-point interface profiling measurements. It provides high resolution and an unparalleled method of measuring interfaces, especially those with emulsion layers and operates reliably in the most difficult of applications.

Why Use the MDA?

The MDA system provides continuous density data at each individual measurement point, specific to each horizontal plane of elevation. As the outputs change from the multiple detectors, the operator can determine the movement of the interface or the size of the emulsion layer for optimal running efficiency of the unit. The density profile created by the MDA system provides actionable data that allows for real-time process monitoring, leading to unit efficiency that is unachievable by other measurement technologies.
