The ITS V5R Electrical Resistance Tomography System is suitable for a wide range of research applications. The instrument operates by taking data from an array of 32 electrodes which can be non-intrusive. Developed in collaboration with Leeds University and supported by the Technology Strategy Board, the V5R is a simple to use, high performance device based on a new voltage-voltage measurement technique. This means that the instrument is able to respond to changing process environments, optimising its performance without the need for re-calibration. It has the added benefit of delivering a much wider performance envelope thereby producing high quality data in large vessels (diameters over 4m) or highly conducting media (brine and other highly ionic substrates).
