3D Particle Tracking Velocimetry Services
For multiphase flow and particle tracking analysis consulting, our engineers provide fully tailored image-based flow measurement solutions, including design, component assembly, setup, recording, post-processing, and analysis.
With 20+ years of experience at the cutting edge of engineering research across North America, our expertise in 3D particle tracking velocimetry (3D-PTV) stands amongst industry’s finest.
Customized project requests, with even more complicated physics, such as phase change, chemistry/reactions, dispersed phase breakup, and flow regime variation, can also be included within a single project quote.

Recent Particle Tracking & Multiphase Flow Consulting Projects
Spray Quench Tower
Calculated the cooling, corrosion, and erosion effects of water spray using particle tracking and phase change models to capture the complex multiphase interactions on the internal surfaces of the quench tower.
Oil and Gas Pipeline (Flow Assurance)
Calculated the resulting turbulent fluid motion resulting from the mixing of black oil/natural gas and water in unusual operating conditions for undersea pipelines.
Flow Control Devices (FCD) and SAGD Liners
Predicted pressure drops and erosion in “Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage” bitumen recovery systems and production. This required modeling the multiphase bitumen-water emulsion flow through various flow control devices at downhole conditions, including the flashing effect for the SAGD extraction process.
Diesel Spray Injector
Modeled the spray injector to predict the cavitation location and rate. This was used to look at the implications on the resulting spray during the cyclic transient injection of a diesel injector.
