The radiometric measurement of density is based on the Gamma transmission principle. The radiation, emitted from a shielded source is directed through the pipeline towards a scintillation detector at the opposite side. When irradiating the pipeline, the radiation is attenuated. The extent to which it is attenuated is directly proportional to the density of the measured material, since type of radiation and measuring geometry are constant.
Moreover the measurement performance is not affected by temperature, pressure, viscosity, color or chemical properties of the measured material.
