Paper Abstract

Tomographic techniques are most frequently used as a research tool but they are now being implemented in industrial environments. A development of sensor design and manufacturing procedures for electrical tomography is described. Issues such as sensor multi-modality, robustness and maintenance are addressed and illustrated by examples of sensor design for the oil and chemical industries. These sensors were constructed for imaging and controlling multi-phase and multicomponent processes at elevated temperatures and pressures in an environment where an acute deposition may occur. The paper discusses two important and diverse issues namely multi-modality and a development of on-line and in-situ electrode cleaning methods.
