Solids level

Emerson Process Management has enhanced the features of the Rosemount 5708 Series 3D Solids Scanner, for accurately measuring level and volume of bulk solids and powders in large vessels, bins and silos.

The scanner, which uses acoustic measurement and 3D mapping technology to provide accurate continuous level and volume measurement, is now suitable for a broader range of applications. The device is now ATEX/IECEx certified for installation in areas with potentially explosive atmospheres. A mounting adaptor allows the device to be installed within electrostatic precipitator (ESP) hoppers. By using its 3D visualisation capability to map out the surface of the fly ash that builds up in the hopper, operators can optimise the process, reducing cost, risk, and wear and tear on the hopper.

Emerson has also introduced full SCADA integration support for the solids scanner. Users can now integrate 3D visualisation of the surface level into Emerson’s Ovation or DeltaV distributed control systems.

For remote solids applications or where there is no existing cable infrastructure, both the solids scanner and the Rosemount 5402 Non-contacting Radar, which provides bulk solids level measurement for applications with smaller sized vessels, can now be connected to a WirelessHART network using a Smart Wireless THUM Adapter.

The air purging connection for the Rosemount 5402 prevents clogging of the antenna in applications with dusty environments. The self-cleaning function on the Rosemount 5708 can be complemented with a PTFE-coated antenna that helps extend maintenance intervals, especially where extremely sticky materials are present.
