Slurry Concentration Detection Theory Based on the Ultrasonic Echo Attenuation


Article Preview

Decay theory based on the ultrasonic echo, with ultrasonic sensors measure the concentration of the slurry through the use of the controller to control the ultrasonic transmitter and receiver circuits, this system will be integrated waveform chip MAX038 generate burst, and then after the power amplifier drive ultrasonic transducer transmits ultrasonic, use of the logarithmic amplifier attenuation of the echo signal through the mud interface to reach the receiving transducer in the ultrasonic detector amplification, concentration data processing obtained by the microcontroller.
