Industrial applications

The ACECT system has been used in a number of challenging research investigations successfully. The following are some examples. 

On the right is a video of imaging a fuidised bed in real time. Fluidisation is a complicated process and is commonly used in the chemical industry. However, up to now there is no efficient tool to measure this process. In this demonstration,  solids beads are suspended by air flowing upwards. An 8-electrode ECT sensor was used to obtain images of the dynamic process. It demonstrates that the ACECT system can provide high-speed high-quality images in real time.
