A project is a targeted, one-off project consisting of controlled activities.

  1. Build on robust level measurement!

    Robust level measurement for building cement industry

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. Reliable level measurement of sterile injection products

    Reliable level determination of sterile injection products with guided wave radar technology

    Solution for animal pharmacy with guided wave radar technology

    A manufacturer of veterinary products equipped several of his process tanks for various liquids with modern level measurement technology. Due to the process conditions, the coaxial version of the guided wave radar sensor from UWT was installed within the injection reactors. TDR sensors meet the highest safety standards, which makes them the preferred technology, especially in the pharmaceutical sector.

  4. 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.

  5. POWER UP with smart Level Measurement Solutions

    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.

  8. Rotary paddle in material handling processes of the grain industry

    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.

  10. Tailor-made solutions for the textile industry

    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.
