    for the metal sector

The Metal Industry

Sensors for use in the metal industry must meet high requirements for durability, reliability, efficiency and economic viability. UWT has the right measurement technology for typical metal industry applications in pressure conveying systems or storage silos.

The challenge

The vibrating sensor VIBRANIVO VN4020 offers a perfect cost-/performance ratio and best technical attributes. It works at a process pressure of up to 10 bar and has the necessary mechanical stability due to its stainless steel extension.

Our solution

The vibrating sensor VIBRANIVO VN4020 offers a perfect cost-/performance ratio and best technical attributes. It works at a process pressure of up to 10 bar and has the necessary mechanical stability due to its stainless steel extension.

Products

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

RN 3002 Rope Extension

Full, Demand, Empty Detector
Rope Extension

  • Vertical installation.
  • Extension can be shortened or lengthened as required.
  • Increased tensile strength.

The challenge

Our customer required to measure the sludge level in a lamellar separator. The contaminated water comes from a large metal recycling plant, and the sludge level measurement is used to control a pump, which pumps the sludge into a press.

Our solution

In this particularly difficult application, the UWT VIBRANIVO VN1000 vibrating fork with a specially developed electronic module for interface measurement is ideal. The adjustable sensitivity means the sensor can be set to the required switch point. The VN1000 functions maintenance-free and has also been well proven in other interface applications. The excellent cost-/performance ratio is another plus in comparison with other measurement principles.

Products

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

VN 1030

Full, Demand, Empty Detector
Tube extension version

  • Vertical, horizontal and oblique installation.
  • Mechanically highly durable due to short vibrating forks.
  • Shaft length up to 4000mm available.
  • Flexible height adjustment
  • Also suitable for Interface measurement.

The challenge

Our customer was looking for a solution for full and demand detection in a pressurised demand vessel for quartz sand. The high pressure combined with the strongly abrasive material required a mechanically robust and tightly sealed instrument.

Our solution

The UWT rotating paddle detector ROTONIVO RN3000 is suitable for such difficult applications. In particular, the pressure resistant sealing of the extension tube together with special shaft sealing rings and multiple shaft bearings ensure the high mechanical durability of this instrument.

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

Our electromechanical system NIVOBOB NB3200 is an electromechanical system with additional advantages because of the tape version with integrated tape cleaner. Thus, the costs for maintenance is reduced. The NB3200 delivers reliable results and offers long-life and stableness also in difficult conditions. All in all, 90 units of series NB3200 have been installed in various applications.

NB 3200 Tape Version

Continuous Level Measurement

  • Suitable for use in most bulk materials.
  • Integrated tape cleaner to remove aherent materials.
  • Mounting with threaded or flange connection.
  • Measuring range up to 50m.
  • Convenient level monitoring via Modbus interface together with cost competitive Nivotec 3500/4500.

The challenge

A polish company required a backlog detection in copper. The measuring system needs to control the conveyer bands. The particular challenge poses the necessary fast reaction time of the system.

Our solution

The rotating paddle switch ROTONVIO RN3002 rope version solves reliably the descriped application. A motor with 5 rpm allows the fast reaction time. The customer is more than satisfied with this stable and reliable solution for his plant.

The challenge

One of the biggest steel plants in India was looking for a solution to measure the sinter level at a stock-house of a I-blast furnace unit. The measurement is very critical due to high dust content. In the past, this company used ultrasonic level transmitter and 26GHz radar, but the performance was not up to the expected level. They asked UWT for a solution in this difficult application.

Our solution

The first activity of UWT was that this steel company received a test sensor of the 78GHz NR3100 high-frequency radio in the 40m version. We wanted to convince these customers with facts, because the previous experience with ultrasonic and radar sensors was not good. Especially the high dust content has made the sensors so far. The NR3100 sensor was calibrated with the process parameters in the Quick Start menu. No further adjustments had to be made. The performance was very good and the sensor worked reliably and with high measuring accuracy. This convinced the customer and he began to use this sensor at other measuring points.

Products

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

NR 3100

Content measurement

  • 78GHz FMCW-Radar Level transmitter
  • Suitable for use in almost all solids
  • Fixed flange and adjustable flange option
  • Measuring range up to 100m
  • Connection to our user-friendly visualisation systems Nivotec 3500/4500 possible using 4-20mA signal
