The paper presents γ-radiation proposal to control a multiphase flow, independently from circumstances. So this method may be applied even in compound industrial or environmental processes. Moreover in many cases, it is the only method for applications for dense mixture containing coarse angular grains. The constructed equipment allows continuous measurement of density as well as solid phase for both concentration and average velocity. Due to pressure loss, it gives the output digital signal convenient for cybernation of the control process. The proposed procedures were tested at a laboratory installation modeling conditions expected during planned excavation of nodules from Pacific bottom.
