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

Plant operators are busy keeping pace of the wide range of challenges presented by raw materials of the building sector, the changing operating conditions in silos or pipelines or the need for ex-certificates. Such requirements call for measurement solutions that are versatile, whilst representing a cost-effective investment and offering versions fully equipped to meet a wide variety of these requirements. Due to the fast development of the building and quarry industry in the MENA countries during the past years, the demand for more solution approaches for applications of cement plants there has increased. Solutions of appropriate sensor technology for content and point level measurement have to be found in order to support the process flow of the cement production in the most reliable way. Case study cement plant In one of Saudi Arabia’s largest cement plants UWT was confronted with especially harsh working conditions. For his cement silos the plant operator was looking after reliable contents measurement technology as well as after a flexible sensor system for level limit detection. The combination of a very high dust generation and an extremely high process temperature

Solutions by UWT for level control of cement in Italy
One of Italy’s largest building industry suppliers equipped its storing processes with suitable level measurement technology. Robust level measurement you can build on. The challenge was to find a system which can measure reliably even in this extremely dusty environment. Together with UWT a free-radiating continuous level measurement was configured. In addition to that a vibrating fork was installed for overfill protection within the truck transporters. - Smart non-contact continuous radar determination Due to the fast development of the building and quarry industry in many European countries during the past years, the demand for more solution approaches for applications of cement plants has increased. Solutions of appropriate sensor technology for content and point level measurement have to be found in order to support the process flow of the cement production in the most reliable way. A manufacturer of concrete and plaster products for the building industry in Italy wanted to modernize his process flow with a redesign of the measuring equipment. Pre-dosed products are mainly offered,

POWER UP with smart Level Measurement Solutions
One of India’s largest energy suppliers equipped its coal handling processes with suitable level measurement technology to optimize the whole power plant flow. How to equip the lifeline of the power plant In addition to natural gas, oil and nuclear power, coal is a major factor in the generation of electrical power. In line with the rapid development of the economy and of technology we have a continuously growing demand for electricity as mankind invents computers, intelligent home appliances, electric cars, intelligent robots and many more products that use electricity. Still rising consumption e.g. in China, India and the United States could bring global coal-fired power demand to a new all-time high. The requirements for electric power equipment are increasing: the need for them to be safe and reliable, with high availability, easy to install, no leakage, maintenance-free and to meet the requirements for environmental protection. End of last year a big coal-fired power plant, located in Kharagpur, West Bengal, was looking for uncomplicated, high-performing and absolutely reliable measurement technology at an affordable

Upgrade of level monitoring system in grain storage A large grain storage facility in the south of England required a reliable content measuring device to replace an old acoustic wave system which was no longer functioning.
Upgrade of level monitoring system in grain storage
A large grain storage facility in the south of England required a reliable content measuring device to replace an old acoustic wave system which was no longer functioning. Non-contact continuous level measurement UWT (UK) Limited proposed the use of the free-radiating radar NivoRadar® NR 3100 which could be supplied with an aiming flange. The integrated aiming flange allowed the radar to be mounted in the same position as the previous acoustic wave device which was close to the silo side wall and which allowed for the narrow 4˚ beam to be aimed towards the lowest point of the silo. This saved the customer time and money as they didn’t need to move the mounting position towards the centre of the silo where the silo was filled from. Bring the levels to where the planner needs them The visualising system that the customer had been using previously was very basic and limited and did not allow them to display the contents in any other way than the level of the material. The customer required the contents of the silo to be displayed in tonnes or percentage of fill. The NivoTec® NT 4600 with cabinet mounted digital display fulfilled

Solutions for the sugar industry - Webinar on Demand
Sugar beet - as versatile as UWT level measurement devices Our Product Manager N. Oppenberger has been looking into the specific requirements for measurement technology in hygiene-sensitive processes in the food production. He discovered that the requirements vary very much depending if you are looking at it at a national or an international level. Bearing this in mind he explains what should be considered when choosing measurement technology. In this seminar a focus is put on the field of sugar processing which cover solutions for overfill protection and empty notification of bulk goods and liquid media. In this live session J. Bareth, Area Sales Manager Central Europe and N. Oppenberger, Product Manager give you an insight into the different level measurement devices used in sugar plants around the world.
