Asphalt Slurry Seal Tank Radar Level Measurement

Asphalt Slurry Seal Tank Radar Level Transmitter

Asphalt Slurry Seal Tank Radar Level Sensor

When a Pennsylvania road contractor needed reliable level measurement of their asphalt slurry seal storage tanks, they turned to Flowline. The firm batches and pumps 500 gallons of slurry from an elevated mix tank to a horizontal storage tank for pump transfer to slurry trucks. The storage tank is heated to 190º F. and slowly blends with internal sweep paddles to maintain consistency. With four locations, the operator wished to centrally monitor inventories to improve purchasing and production. Due to the temperature and coating type media, Flowline suggested our non-contact radar level sensors which detect, map and reject the false reflections off the sweep paddles. The radar sensors provide reliable level data to the display and telemetry unit, which periodically transmits an inventory update. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
