Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR AUTOMATICALLY EVALUATING SLURRY PROPERTIES
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS D'ÉVALUATION AUTOMATIQUE DES PROPRIÉTÉS D'UNE BOUE
Abstract:
(EN) In some embodiments, a system for automatically evaluating slurry properties includes a down-hole measurement device configured to be lowered into slurry provided in an excavated hole, the measurement device comprising an outer housing, a flow pump, a flow meter, and a differential pressure sensor, wherein the flow pump is configured to pump slurry through the flow meter, the flow meter is configured to measure a flow rate of the pumped slurry, and the differential pressure sensor is configured to measure a difference in pressure between the pumped slurry and the slurry outside of the measurement device.
(FR) Selon certains modes de réalisation, la présente invention concerne un système d'évaluation automatique des propriétés d'une boue, comprenant un dispositif de mesure de fond de trou, conçu pour être abaissé dans la boue disposée dans un trou excavé, le dispositif de mesure comprenant un boîtier extérieur, une pompe à débit, un débitmètre et un capteur de pression différentielle, la pompe à débit étant conçue pour pomper la boue à travers le débitmètre, le débitmètre étant conçu pour mesurer un débit de la boue pompée et le capteur de pression différentielle étant conçu pour mesurer une différence de pression entre la boue pompée et la boue à l'extérieur du dispositif de mesure.
