    POWER UP with smart Level Measurement Solutions

    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.

    SIL2 for rotating paddle series

    First rotating paddle limit switch with SIL2 worldwide

     

    The terms ‘functional safety’ and ‘safety integrity level (SIL)’ have occurred more frequently since the publication of the international standard IEC 61508/IEC61511. Particularly in systems with hazard-causing processes, such as in chemical plants, the consideration of functional safety has become indispensable. On this basis safety-related practices, design principles and error considerations must be met in order to minimize the risk of a dangerous failure.

    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.
