The Rhosonics emulsion separation scanner is a measurement system that can monitor and log a separation proces in time. The emulsion is located in a vertical cylinder. During the measurement ultrasound tranducers are moved up and down the cylinder and the system records the reflection and transmission signals. From these signals several material constants are derived. This results in a very detailed log of the separation process.
For the emulsion separation scanner Somatidio has developed in LabVIEW:
