08.02.2016 Improved level measurement technology for solids

Emerson Process Management, St. Louis, MO, has enhanced its range of level measurement devices for bulk solids and powders. A number of new functions and certifications are expected to help minimise maintenance, whilst facilitating integration and expanding the range of suitable applications. “Uneven surfaces, irregular build-up and harsh, dusty and potentially explosive environments make measuring the level of solids in large vessels problematic, impacting inventory control decisions,” said technical director Asael Sharabi. The Rosemount 5708 Series 3D Solids Scanner, which uses acoustic measurement and 3D mapping technology to provide highly accurate continuous level and volume measurement, is now suitable for a broader range of applications. The device is now ATEX/IECEx certified for installation in areas with potentially explosive atmospheres, often found in solids measurement applications. A new mounting adaptor also allows the device to be installed within electrostatic precipitator hoppers. To overcome the difficulty of installation and integration, Emerson has introduced full SCADA integration support for the solids scanner. The company has subsidiaries or agents in most European countries.
