Instrumentation & Control
Instrumentation and process control for powder and bulk solids handling operations
All powder and bulk solids processing and handling equipment or systems require some degree of monitoring and control. The more complex an industrial process becomes, the more critical it becomes that it is correctly controlled and monitored, and this is where instrumentation and control systems are crucial.
Silo contents measurement is a crucial area. Because the bulk density of silo contents may vary, level indication and level detection instrumentation are vital to prevent overfilling. In other industrial processes, controls need to react to explosions, system blockages, sifter screen breakages, metal detectors, over-heated mills, etc. and take the appropriate action to prevent system damage or compromise product quality.
