By C. Schmelzer – Cement production involves a good deal of bulk material handling. As the base materials, and especially their handling behaviour, are prone to humidity, special action must be taken to keep these materials moving in the course of the production process.

Copenhagen, Denmark – Xuan Thanh Cement has awarded FLSmidth a contract to deliver equipment for a brownfield cement production line in Ha Nam province in Vietnam. The contract has a value of around DKK 550 million (approx. USD 82 million). The order is due to be fully delivered by the end of 2020, and once operational the production line will have a capacity of 12,500 tonnes per day.
Lincoln (NE), United States – Using a continuous level sensor to monitor the material level in your storage vessels can help your operation maintain efficiency – preventing costly process interruptions and keeping you up-to-date on your inventory level. This whitepaper is intended to help operations choose a continuous level sensor without having to wade through volumes of technical data. It will briefly describe the sensor types available, address the pros and cons of each type, and explain what information you need to gather before working with a sensor supplier.
Quickborn, Germany – Die MBA Instruments GmbH präsentiert dem Fachpublikum der diesjährigen POWTECH eine weitere Produktoptimierung innerhalb der Füllstandmesstechnik: Die MBA800-Drehflügelserie wird durch den neu konzipierten Schwenkflügel ergänzt. Die neue MBA801 Halfpipe ermöglicht eine Messung im fallenden Schüttstrom und kann dadurch in noch mehr Schüttgütern zum Einsatz kommen. Continue reading MBA Instruments auf der POWTECH 2019: Drehflügelmelder misst auch im fallenden Schüttgutstrom
Lincoln (NE), United States – For almost a decade, 3DLevelScanners have been providing highly accurate level and volume measurement in challenging materials contained in bins, tanks, and silos. Measuring and mapping the material surface, these sensor sends pulses in a 70° beam angle, taking multiple level measurements and accounting for uneven surface topography when calculating volume. Continue reading BinMaster: 3D Level Sensors can solve the toughest Food Storage Challenges
