Reliable level measurement with guided wave technology
TDR sensors meet the highest safety standards, which makes them the preferred technology, especially in the pharmaceutical sector. 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 was installed within the injection reactors. Modular device design for flexible installation solutions In the course of expanding investments in machinery, equipment and buildings, a manufacturer of various pharmaceutical veterinary preparations in Argentina was looking for an accurate and durable solution to automate level measurement within his production facilities. Over 500 registered veterinary products are manufactured there for the global veterinary market. A special installation with radar measurement technology was implemented for level measurement within several 2000 liter reactors with different injection products. Due to the implemented heating system of the tanks, the interior space for the installation was very limited. The various

Capacitive measurement technology for cooling water containing H2-gas
Capacitance measurement technology realizes a very fast measurement (<1s) and is not influenced by the prevailing steam or pressure fluctuations. Capacitance level measurement in tanks Level sensors that work according to the capacitive measuring principle are used in different liquids, pastes, foams and slurries and can be implemented in all types and shapes of tanks, metallic or non-metallic. They have a very high level of precision in both conductive and non-conductive media. If you look at the whole thing in practice, it becomes clear how versatile the capacitive measuring principle is in very different process conditions. Proven technology For a steel-producing plant, a continuous level measurement, which works unaffected by steam or pressure fluctuations within a very small measuring range, was implemented with the NivoCapa® NC 8000 in water for gas cooling. The proven technology with active buildup compensation and a tunable oscillator was a flexible solution for optimizing the manufacturing process.

Process optimization for hydropower plants
Solutions in the dam - Compact limit switch for process optimization for hydropower plants as a backwater detector for wood chip conveyance. One of the largest energy supply companies in the UK was looking for modern equipment for its northern dam with flexible metering technology. The electricity and natural gas supplier for local households and businesses has been focusing on hydropower generation for several years, in addition to wind power. The centrepiece of the dam’s hydropower plant is the installed wood chip system, which was recently implemented to curb pollution in the dam. Accumulated wood chips are transported to a designated storage area via a series of chain conveyors. These chain conveyors need to be monitored with modern and robust measurement technology. Namely, an indicator that functions as a full detector is required in the transfer chutes in order to detect a blockage with the wood chips in good time. Full detection for wood chip conveyance Together with the subsidiary UWT (UK) Ltd in Shrewsbury, a safe solution was found after several tests with oscillating probes that work according

Vibration level sensor meets rigorous standards in tea production
Precise level measurement in dusty environments: UWT’s vibrating level switch Mononivo® ensures the highest quality in the food industry A renowned producer of yerba mate in Argentina was faced with the challenge of reliably monitoring the limit levels in a new production plant. The product itself presented particular challenges: A high-dust suspension with a low density of 400 g/l - and the need for specific certification for the food sector. Given the importance of this monitoring of over 100 measuring points, the customer focused on the durability and reliability of the sensors to be used. The plant operator needed a solution for precise control of low and very low fill levels that could meet the demanding conditions of the dusty and lightweight product. Additionally, the sensors had to comply with strict food safety standards and offer high reliability across a multitude of measuring points. Precise measurement at minimum fill levels For these specific requirements, UWT GmbH selected the Mononivo® - MN 4020 vibration switch. This sensor impresses with its high sensitivity, which can be adjusted

Continuous & point level measurement with guaranteed Quality Level detectors detect media at a predefined position depending on the installation position.
Continuous & point level measurement with guaranteed Quality
Level detectors detect media at a predefined position depending on the installation position. Level detectors are mainly installed as full or empty detectors in the upper or lower part of a silo or container. This prevents the silo from overfilling or running empty. In combination with a level sensor, this results in a redundant system which additionally increases plant safety. If a certain fill level is of particular interest, the sensors can also be used as demand detectors. There are different technologies for level detection, which have their advantages and disadvantages depending on the application. For the selection, numerous process conditions have to be considered, which the sensor technology has to cope with. In addition, the requirements for bulk solids sensors differ from those for liquid sensors. For this reason, UWT offers a broad portfolio of different technologies such as rotary paddle switches, vibration level switches and capacitive sensors. This allows us to individually address their requirements in order to always provide them with the

Innovative custom solution with UWT Radar Sensor Solution-oriented: Side-mounted radar sensor for continuous level measurement on fly ash hoppers
Innovative custom solution with UWT Radar Sensor
Solution-oriented: Side-mounted radar sensor for continuous level measurement on fly ash hoppers In a coal power plant in South Carolina, continuous level measurement for fly ash hoppers was required. This specific challenge was effectively addressed by installing a side-mounted guided radar sensor with a 90° elbow shaft. In the energy sector, where environmental protection and safety are of high importance, UWT has once again demonstrated its ability to shine with thoughtful solutions and technical expertise. The challenge: Promoting environmental safety through precise level measurement. Fly ash is a byproduct of coal combustion and is an environmental hazard. Coal-fired power plants are obliged to collect this material for disposal or reuse. Precise level measurement is of the utmost importance in this context in order to avoid overfilling, which can lead to safety risks, high cleaning costs and possible fines. Proven methods, innovative approach In such situations, free-radiating sensors such as the NivoRadar® 3000 or NivoRadar® 4000 are usually

Radar provides the level monitoring solution within a UK paper mill
Radar sensor from UWT is the bespoke solution for content measurement Continuous level monitoring devices regulate and control liquid or solid levels in a processing plant, helping to streamline the operation, eliminate human error and thus maximise overall efficiency. And so level control devices should be and are an investment that needs careful research and consideration to ensure that the investment in such kit is wisely made. Our customer, a large paper mill based in the UK, approached UWT UK Ltd to achieve all the above for the monitoring of their coal silo and in a backwater tank. A mechanical system in the coal silo and ultrasonic technology in the backwater tank had both failed leaving the monitoring task being executed manually using a tape measure dropped in through the tops of the silo and tank. Clearly, it was time to upgrade. So the customer approached UWT UK Ltd to visit and inspect the applications and to advise on a long term, reliable solution within budget.
