What is the Miners Canary?
In order to define the correct level measurement technology it is essential to analyze the different process parameters of the single application such as material properties, process temperatures, pressure and connections as well as the process atmosphere. The selection of the right level measurement technologies, their correct configuration and smart positioning will save substantial costs and add up to a significant improvement in the plants’ economic efficiency over its lifecycle.
Continuous level measurement between double filling: Optimum echo quality & dust-tight design make it possible
Many an inconspicuous component part can quickly become a problem if it does not function reliably. In the case of level monitoring, for example, cost-causing silo overfilling or running empty, which can result in a production standstill, are avoided. In order to integrate sensors perfectly into plants, the highest process compatibility is required for the individual production stages, as well as a certified design. For an animal feed producer in Chile, it should also be a non-contact measurement technology for the storage of powdered raw materials, which operates under high dust generation during the dynamic filling process.
When configuring a suitable sensor system for the plant operator, the focus was on process reliability, durability and simplicity. Furthermore, the requirements for the special installation situation had to be taken into account.
Smart TDR with helpful diagnostic capabilities
For the cellulose production of a wood manufacturing plant in South America, the guided wave radar was implemented in several water tank constructions within the maceration processes. The modern, high-quality TDR technology ensures a continuous production process of the plant. Uninfluenced by changing process conditions, TDR sensors detect the level reliably and precisely and thus offer optimum support for a smooth process flow.
High solids content & moving surface
Concerning precise interface measurement of different solids in liquids there are popular project planning options for continuous level monitoring with lot systems and point level detection with vibrating forks. A company in England who manufactures stone recovery plants for the quarrying industry implements the electromechanical plumb bob NivoBob® for the detection of interface levels with the right feeling for the separating layer. The operator was looking after a principle that is sensitive and simple.
Modern, high-quality technologies ensure a continuous stress-free manufacturing process in plants
When it comes to detecting fill levels in silos and material processing operations, sensors with a high level of compatibility for different process containers provide the optimum support for a smooth process. Depending on the processing stage, the material to be controlled can be of very different nature and place different demands on the measurement technology to be used. Users from different industries with a number of scattered storage silos consider it increasingly necessary for their plants to be equipped with automated visualisation and monitoring of the data in addition to continuous measurement of the fill levels.
