Measure density and flow in a gravity line

How is it possible to measure flow and density of slurry flowing in a 12" pipe without pump, with gravity only?
Is it possible to connect to the big pipe a smaller pipe in upward
direction and measure density and flow in the smaller pipe?
If yes, what will be the precision of the measurements?
