Lincoln (NE), United States – The simple-to-install 1-1/2” NPT BinMaster NCR-80 non-contact radar now offers optional Class II certifications for hazardous locations. This 80 GHz sensor focuses its powerful signal in a narrow 4° beam to penetrate dust and accurately measure solids in silos up to 80 feet tall.
Los Alamitos (CA), United States – The EchoPro® Pulse Radar Solids Level Sensors from Flowline offer reliable and cost-effective non-contact level measurement for difficult applications. These 26 GHz pulse radar sensors work with powders, grains, pellets and aggregates in dusty environments with limited space and varying angles of material repose.
Lincoln (NE), United States – Companies that store materials in bins and stockpiles can now manage inventory for both using a single system. BinMaster and Stockpile Reports have joined forces to improve material management for companies that demand better control and accuracy of inventory volume and value.
Lincoln (NE), United States – The BinMaster SmartBob level sensor measures solids and powder levels automatically in bins, tanks, and silos. Inventory management programs, wireless communications, and display consoles simplify data monitoring from a desktop, tablet, or phone.
Lincoln (NE), United States – Mining, aggregate, and cement operations challenged with managing inventory in covered storage bunkers have a new option available from BinMaster that combines leading-edge software and the 3DLevelScanner acoustic sensor to measure the level of materials piled under structures. Multiple sensors measure and map levels across the material surface, while MultiVision software separates the piled material into virtual sections.
Lincoln (NE), USA — Operations burdened with managing inventory in pie-shaped segments of silos now have a solution that provides very accurate volume data—thanks to new firmware for the BinMaster 3DLevelScanner acoustic sensor. The 3DLevelScanner measures and models the topography of material contained in these unusually-shaped wedges. The newest firmware then applies the measured distances to a 3D model of vessel dimensions and converts it to a highly accurate volume measurement.
Shakopee (MJN), USA — Emerson has launched a dedicated version of its Rosemount™ 5408 Non-Contacting Radar Level Transmitter to meet the specific demands of bulk solids level measurement. Through advanced technology and Human Centered Design principles, the SIL 3-capable device delivers enhanced accuracy, reliability and ease-of-use, supporting improved process optimization and plant safety across a wide range of industries.
