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 important it becomes that it is correctly controlled and monitored. This is where instrumentation and control systems are crucial.
Silo contents measurement is a key area. Because the bulk density of silo contents may vary, level indication and level detection instrumentation is vital to prevent overfilling. In other industrial processes, controls need to be able 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 to product quality.
