New level switches to optimize operations in solids applications

By Chemical Engineering |

Emerson Automation Solutions

The new range of Rosemount solids level switches (photo) was designed to increase safety and reduce waste by providing reliable point-level monitoring and supporting overfill prevention. The vibrating fork, paddle, capacitance and vibrating-rod switches monitor solid materials, such as powders, grains and pellets, in all silo types. The compact switches require low levels of maintenance and are suitable for operation in extremely challenging environments, including those with high temperatures, high pressures, dust and risk of explosion. The switches can be used to provide standalone point-level monitoring to help optimize filling and emptying cycles. They can also be deployed within an overfill-prevention system. — Emerson Automation Solutions, Austin, Tex.
