This is a comprehensive reference on state-of-the art controls and systems for measuring and monitoring bulk solid materials. "Solids Level Measurement and Detection Handbook" features:
• Definitions of standard terms and overview of typical problems and solutions in automated bulk materials handling
• In-depth coverage of Point Level Detection Technology and Instrumentation
• In-depth coverage of Continuous Level Technology and Instrumentation
• Explains how automated solids materials can be integrated into inventory management Storing, handling, and processing of bulk solid materials is fundamental to nearly every manufacturing and processing industry, from the food industry and agribusiness, to the plastics industry, to the mining and cement industries, to coal-fired electric utilities. Automating the handling and processing of solids is rapidly growing, but heretofore little has been published on the latest in sensors and controls used in such applications. This book is intended to meet that need, with full coverage, from principles of measuring solid bulk materials to controlling their flow and movement to help with choosing the right equipment for specific applications. Nowhere else in the current literature will industrial engineers, controls engineers, and manufacturing technicians find a better resource on current sensor controls and systems used to automate the handling and process of bulk solid materials.
