Universal voltage is the electric force that sets the electrons in motion and thereby causes a current flow.
How to configure solutions for level control of cement manufacturing processes
One of Italy’s largest building industry suppliers equipped its storing processes with suitable level measurement technology. The challenge was to find a system which can measure reliably even in this extremely dusty environment. Together with UWT a free-radiating continuous level measurement was configured. In addition to that a vibrating fork was installed for overfill protection within the truck transporters.
How to equip the lifeline of the power plant with two classic solutions with modular design for many configuration options to implement transparent and more efficient process performance
One of India's largest energy suppliers equipped its coal handling processes with suitable level measurement technology to optimize the whole power plant flow. Together with UWT an adaptable limit level switch for the demand notification as well as a continuous level measurement was configured. The challenge was to find a system which can measure reliably even in this extremely dusty and harsh environment.
The rotary paddle detector regulates the supply of wood chips in the reactor and withstands extreme temperatures
Modern solutions for efficient storage processes in grain, standing and flour silos
What can happen if plant engineers choose unsuitable measurement technology in their applications? In addition to overfilling of the silo or reduced productivity, production may even come to a halt. When choosing measurement sensor technology, plant operators should therefore always be careful to use high-quality and reliable system components in line with the changing challenges, depending on the process. The rotating paddle detector, which detects limit levels in silo containers according to the rotation principle, can be found in almost every grain processing plant.
Lot solutions as quick and easy measurement device, rotating paddles for extreme temperatures & capacitance RF probes for specialities
Plant operators are busy keeping pace of the wide range of challenges presented by raw materials of the building sector, the changing operating conditions in silos or pipelines or the need for ex-certificates. Such requirements call for measurement solutions that are versatile, whilst representing a cost-effective investment and offering versions fully equipped to meet a wide variety of these requirements. Due to the fast development of the building and quarry industry in the MENA countries during the past years, the demand for more solution approaches for applications of cement plants there has increased. Solutions of appropriate sensor technology for content and point level measurement have to be found in order to support the process flow of the cement production in the most reliable way.
In one of Saudi Arabia’s largest cement plants UWT was confronted with especially harsh working conditions. For his cement silos the plant operator was looking after reliable contents measurement technology as well as after a flexible sensor system for level limit detection. The combination of a very high dust generation and an extremely high process temperature was a challenge for the right choice of instruments.
Thus the selection of measurement technology included first of all for the storage silos an electromechanical plumb bob that fits also perfect with the connection to a visualization system. Further for limit detection during several process steps rotating paddle switch and capacitive rod probe were installed. Here respectively the high temperature version was demanded.
Point level detection and continuous level measurement combined with smart silo management
A supplier to the automotive industry modernized his plant with regard to manufacturing processes for plastic granules. He also wanted to invest in a complete level monitoring system in order to automate his manual measurements in the future and to read the filling levels conveniently on the PC screen.
