Storage in bulk solids stockpiles

Storage in bulk solids stockpiles

Stockpile monitoring

After being extracted and screened, gravel and sand are stored according to different grain sizes on different mounds. Reliable level measurement is an absolute must here for automating the dumping process and ensuring optimal levels. Transmitting measurement data from the mobile conveyors is often difficult since data cables generally do not exist at such sites. Wireless data transmission ensures safe and economic operation of the facility in such cases.

Stockpile monitoring with VEGAPULS 67

By mounting the radar sensor directly beside the point where the material is dropped from the conveyor belt, mound accumulation can be optimally monitored. The sensor always delivers the exact mound height completely independent of the material stream and ambient influences like rain, fog or strong wind.

Belt empty signal with VEGAMIP 61

The microwave barrier VEGAMIP 61 detects if conveyor belt is running empty. As soon as the material stream stops, an empty signal is transmitted and the conveyor belt can be moved to another position.

Wireless transmission of measuring signals with PLICSRADIO

PLICSRADIO offers a very simple way of wirelessly transmitting the measurement data to a receiving unit up to one kilometre away. It is not necessary to install signal cables on the mobile conveyor systems.
