Metal

Sensors for use in the metal industry or metallurgy have to meet high requirements for durability, reliability, efficiency and economic viability. Typical applications are in pressure conveying systems, quenching or storage silos.

  1. Manage dust & corrosion with measurement technology as hard as steel

    Manage dust & corrosion with measurement technology as hard as steel

    Solutions with guided wave radar technology in iron ore

    In the metallurgy and metal sector, conditions are often harsh, noisy and dusty. The level measuring devices must be robust and absolutely reliable as standard in order to ensure a continuous, stress-free production process. A modern solution for continuous level measurement with guided wave radar sensors was configured for a global steel producer near Santo Domingo. For precise results, the level measurement technology had to be unaffected by dust, abrasion and high process temperatures.

    Level measurement detection in tanks for gas cooling

    Practical solutions for cooling water with H2 gas of steel industry: Capacitance sensor for content level measurement detection

    For a steel-producing plant in India, a continuous level measurement, which works unaffected by steam or pressure fluctuations within a very small measuring range, was implemented with the NivoCapa® NC 8000 in water for gas cooling. The proven technology with active buildup compensation and a tunable oscillator was a flexible solution for optimizing the manufacturing process.

  6. Vibrating fork series for process solutions in different industries

    Vibrating fork series for process solutions in different industries

    Different project planning options for plant operators with vibrating rod or vibrating fork


    When projecting the equipment with measurement technology for plants around the globe, technicians and engineers have noticed that in recent years there has been a noticeable increase in demand for more compact limit switches that have a very high level of compatibility worldwide. There is a demand for measuring solutions that are characterised by common technical features and can be used in very many applications without much configuration effort. Compact, robust single-bars are preferred, for example for small containers in material-processing operations. One design that has become established on international markets has very small connection threads and works according to the vibration principle.
