SONARtrac’s proven application in resource industries such as mining, and the region’s tremendous growth, presents a strong opportunity to serve customers in Asia Pacific.” says Charlie Neagoy, Managing Director of Product Line with CiDRA.Patrick Matthews, Managing Director of Krohne Australia, adds: “The sales agreement with CiDRA is a strategic partnership of high importance for Krohne in Asia and the Pacific. We have already worked together for several years in applying SONARtrac technology to difficult minerals processing applications and based on this experience, we strongly believe that the combined knowledge in flow application of our two global companies will become a real success story across multiple industries.”Krohne is a full-service provider for process measuring technology for the measurement of flow, mass flow, level, pressure and temperature as well as analytical tasks.
