Other Industries

For the various applications found in many other industries, UWT provides efficient level measurement with modern, service-friendly device technology.  UWT can tailor make measuring techniques for individual bulk solids applications in order to solve all challenges presented. 

The challenge

Combined measurement in silicic acid

Our customer required continuous, full and empty measurement of a silo containing silicic acid, which is used for the further processing of paper coating. Furthermore discharge monitoring is also required in the pipe manifold. The challenge is that the material is very dusty and has a very light density, particularly in flow form.

Our solution

Combined measurement in very light silicic acid

The UWT lot NB 3200 fulfills the continuous measurement requirements. The sensor weight is a specially constructed folding cloth weight that sits on the silicic acid. The integrated tape cleaner prevents heavy contamination of the NB inner chamber. The NB measurement results can be totally relied on. Neither strong dust development, nor the surface of the silicic acid nor material caking, cause problems for the NB. To complement contents measurement, the VIBRASIL90 probe is the ideal solution for full and empty detection. Flow detection in the pipe manifold is achieved with the VIBRASIL70. Both the VIBRASIL70 and VIBRASIL90 are so sensitive that they can detect material with a density of just 5 g/l.

Products

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

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.

Vibrasil 70

Full, Demand, Empty Detector
Short version, pipe or cable extension shaft from series VN2000 / VN6000 series 

  • Ideal for extremely light or pneumatically conveyed bulk solids.
  • Very high sensitivity <5g/l.
  • Shaft with aluminium fork.

The challenge

Interface measurement of sludge in water

The government of Belgium required a continuous level control for ablated sand in harbour basins. With the help of special dredges the harbour basins are regularly cleared from sand which is conveyed on the ships. The particular challenge is to find a measuring system that on the one hand can withstand the very aggressive conditions and on the other hand delivers precise measuring results. After a testing period that compared three suppliers, the UWT NB3 interface solution convinced the customer in the end.

Our solution

Interface measurement in sand and water

With the special lot system NB 3300 for interface measurement could fulfill the requirements of the belgian government for precise measurement and corrosion resistance in salt water. The weight was specially adjusted for the surface of the sand in water in order to get a measurement accuracy of 1cm. Each part that tangents the aggressive salt water are rather coated with a special material or have been produced with a corrosion resistant material.

Products

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

NB 3300 Rope Version

Interface Measurement

  • Suitable for the continuous level measurement of sludges and solids in liquids.
  • Continuously reliable measurement results.
  • Flange mounting.
  • Measuring range up to 30m.
  • Version with improved corrosion resistance for chemical and salt applications.
  • Sensitivity adaptable depending on sediment density.
NR 3100 in other sectors

The Challenge

A customer in South Corea is looking for a reliable level measuring sensor in slurry tanks. They produce ceramic accessories for bathrooms like toilets or washbasin. In the production process is an application for level sensors in a tank, where a slurry mixture is stored. In the 12m high tank is a fast moving agitator (10-12RPM), which is a challenge for the level sensor. It should ignore the agitator and should not cause wrong level signals.

NR 3100

Our Solution

The sensor NivoRadar NR3100 with 4° narrow beam allows the precise intallation point, so that the measurement will not be influenced by the fast moving agitator and very limited installation space. The compact sensor measures also through a movable and high socket. The high frequency of the radar with 78GHz guarantees a good reflection from the slurry and a great echo confidence. The sensor has a robus stainless steel housing with a high protection class of IP68. The plug on display makes an easy setup possible.

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

The Challenge

A customer who manufactured railway cleaning machines had the task of checking the level of the machine tanks. The system collects or sucks various materials in the rails, such as coal, cement, asbestos, ore, gasoline products, etc., using a vacuum generated by a vacuum pump. Excavated material is transported pneumatically through hoses or pipes into a material container and can be transported away from the machine with other additional tools from a distance of 100 meters. The max alarm should be detected in these collecting containers.

Our Solution

The application was solved with a rotating paddle switch RN3002 rope version. This limit switch detects reliable any kind of solids and waste and is very robus. The construction inside of the hopper is done with a protection pipe. It protects the probe from falling stones and heavy objects.

 

 

Products

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

The Challenge

The customer required chute blockage sensors for feed conveyors of dried animal waste into their boiler system. The switch was required to sense a feed blockage and stop the conveyors and indicate that their was a feed problem.

Our Solution

Using a RN3001 mounted over the head drum of the conveyor this would allow the plant to know when a chute had become blocked. The sensor is robust, durable and tolerates caking, dust and harsh conditions.

Products

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

RN 3001

Full, demand, empty detector
Short version

  • Vertical, horizontal and oblique installation.
  • Compact boom length, from 70mm.
  • Particularly suitable for small process vessels.

The Challenge

The customer has five calcium carbonate storage silos which has high and low level switches however no continuous monitoring.

He required a method to monitor the contents within the silos to allow them to better understand the stock levels and when a bulk delivery could be required.

Our Solution

Using the NR3100 with the NT4600 the operators were able to know when they needed to change the feed silo and to know when to arrange a bulk delivery. The main challenge was the amount of dust within the silo. Thanks to the high-frequency radar technology, a very good reflection is achieved even in this dusty application and a permanently reliable measurement is guaranteed. The fill level can be easily read on the touch panel. Up to 15 silos are shown on it. The view can be configured as required and volume calculated.
