Founded in 1996, CiDRA is headquartered in Wallingford, Connecticut with an increasing number of international offices. CiDRA’s patented SONARtrac® flow technology has established itself as a new class of industrial flowmeter, utilizing measurement principles that are distinct from all other flowmeter technologies operating today and is ideally suited for measuring flow in difficult slurry applications within the energy and natural resource industries.
SONARtrac passive sonar flow meters wrap around the outside of a process pipe and perform two fundamental and independent measurements, key to the accurate measurement of process flows - volumetric flow and entrained air percent. Because SONARtrac flow meters do not come into contact with the process slurry they provide high reliability thereby contributing to increased accuracy, increased process uptime and lower measurement costs. CiDRA has been aggressively developing various solutions offerings related to flow management and assurance, slurry rheology characterization, and overall plant monitoring and process optimization in minerals processing, oilsands, and pulp and paper applications. CiDRA products and services are being used by over 250 customers in 21 countries.
The Company is ISO 9001 certified and has been since April 1999.
