    Rotary paddle in material handling processes of the grain industry

    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.

    Tailor-made solutions for the textile industry

    RF measurement in clean and contaminated acetone for synthetic fiber manufacturer producing special protective clothing and packaging solutions 

     

    Single-rod probes using the capacitive measuring method are in many cases a clever solution when it comes to level detection. They can be found in overfill protection and as demand or empty detectors in process or storage containers. These limit switches are suitable for almost all bulk materials from different industries, due to high sensitivity, high mechanical load and the variety of probe extensions. But these qualities also make them a suitable solution in the fascinating world of varied liquid applications, be they in food, wood, rubber, plastics, environmental and power plants, building materials and chemical industries. The use of the RFnivo® capactive rod is fully explained here within the textile production process featuring the aggressive substance of acetone. The Rotonivo® rotary paddle switch having provided the solution for many years for the plant operator, this time the application required an alternative answer from the UWT team.

  8. TDR solution for cement

    Guided wave radar in narrow storage silo for overfill protection and empty message

    Guided wave radar in narrow storage silo for overfill protection and empty message


    Every year, over 40 million cubic meters of ready-mixed concrete is processed in Germany. Already 85% of all concrete and fresh mortar required on construction sites are mixed in ready-mixed concrete plants. In aggregate, quarry and mining applications, the conditions are often harsh, noisy and dusty. The TDR level measurement devices with their high compatibility are used for consistently accurate continuous level detection under difficult varying process conditions, such as high pull-off forces, caking or condensate formation.

    Empty detection in sulfuric acid

    Capacitance measurement solutions for chemical sector


    For the manufacturing of aluminum sulfate a plant operator in Peru was looking for a compact level measurement for its raw material tanks with 98% sulfuric acid. Due to the strong corrosion caused by the acidic material, the decision was made to implement the robust capacity indicator Capanivo® CN 7000 enclosure version for implementing reliable empty messages.

    Overfill protection in fish oil

    Easy installation and automatic calibration

     

    A fish feed manufacturer based in Denmark was looking for a consistently precise, yet simple, user-friendly level monitoring for its fish oil storage tanks. In addition to being used as a lubricant, leather tanning and, due to its omega-3 fats, as a food supplement, fish oil is mainly used in the manufacture of pet food and for aquaculture. Fish farming, as a rapidly growing global industry, necessitates plant operators to continuously optimize their production technologies and processes. In the storage processes, the robust, capacitive RF rod probe proved to be the optimal solution for the fish feed manufacturer thanks to the precise surface detection and automatic calibration capabilities of the device.
