The Glass Industry

UWT level controls can be found in all areas of processing within the glass industry: both in the storage and processing as well as in the manufacturing stage.   Here you can see practical examples of how the robust sensors withstand high mechanical load and deliver reliable results, even in corrosive media environments.

The challenge

Our customer owns a big glass factory in Moscow. During the processing of chalk, soda and dolomite the process temperature rises to 130°C. Also, the process pressure rises up to 7 bar. The special challenge is the difficult mounting position of the full detector on top of the vessel.

Our solution

The usage of our vibrating probe VIBRANIVO VN4030 with tube extension is the best solution for this application. The reliable sensor measures even at high temperatures of up to 150°C and pressure of up to 16 bar. The maintenance-free technology fulfills all of the customer‘s requirements.

Products

With the following products our customer has solved this measurement task optimally:

VN 4030

Full, Demand, Empty Detector
Tube extension version

  • Vertical, horizontal and oblique installation.
  • Cost competitive level detector.
  • Able to withstand high mechanical loads due to short extension length.
  • Shaft length up to 4000mm available.
  • Flexible height adjustment.

The challenge

Our customer is a glass factory from Russia. He required an empty detector for the measurement of broken glass that are in the mill. The vessel has a height of 9.7m. A long lifetime and a stableness of the measuring system are one of the core requirements of our customer.

Our solution

The rotating paddle switch ROTONIVO RN3004 is the best solution for this application in glass. With an extension length of 150mm the unit measures reliably and safe the empty state in the silo. The rotating paddle switch of UWT is one of the most reliable and safe measuring principles on the market. True to the motto “Install and forget!“

Products

With the following products our customer has solved this measurement task optimally:

RN 3004 Horizontal Tube Extension

Full, Demand, Empty Detector
Protection tube version

  • Horizontal, vertical and diagonal installation.
  • Extremely robust due to protection tube, able to withstand heavy mechanical load.

The challenge

One of the largest producers of glass containers worldwide needs to measure the storage of materials in 15 meter silo in the Seville plant - Spain. The materials are aggressive and abrasive combined with humidity and very dusty, in the internal and external environment. Also, there was difficulty in the installation to measure the level of silo with mixture of caustic soda and sand, due the ambient temperatures exceeded 75-100ºC by the installation location.

Our solution

In this case the most suitable solution was the non-contact level transmitter, Nivoradar 3100 with 78Ghz frequency and 4º beam angle. The use of the air intake was very important to keep the lens clean and also to lower the ambient temperature by blow in cold air (45ºC). In this way it was possible to keep the equipment measuring with high performance without any process interference.

Products

With the following products our customer has solved this measurement task optimally:

NR 3000

The challenge

Control level limit of the charge (sand, soda, lime, water) in the hopper:

- large vibrations

- 100% humidity

- aggressive athmosphere

 

 

Our solution

The solution is the vibration fork VN1020 with electronic for slurry detection. The universal voltage electronic has an adjustable sensitivity. The probe is stainless steel and resists the aggressive athmosphere.

Products

With the following products our customer has solved this measurement task optimally:

VN 1020

Full, Demand, Empty Detector
Short version

  • Vertical, horizontal and oblique Installation.
  • Compact from 165mm shaft length.
  • Ideal for small process vessels and large sized silos.
  • Mechanically highly durable due to short shaft length.
  • Also suitable for interface measurement of solids and liquids.
