Biosolids Dusty Powder Silo Radar Level Sensor

When a Texas wastewater treatment plant needed reliable level measurement of their biosolid silos, they turned to Flowline. The plant dewaters sludge to cake, and further processes the cake to powder using a digester heat exchanger and vortex mixer. The nutrient rich powder is then stored onsite and sold to fertilizer companies who mix it into compost or pellets for resale to farms. With the consistency of cement powder, the media is very dusty, and it builds up on everything. Plant operators were tired of removing, cleaning and reinstalling a different radar level sensor that often became intermittent due to material build-up. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our radar sensors with high power parabolic antennas that are unaffected by build up, and ideal for dusty applications. The radar sensors provide continuous level data to the SCADA, which monitors the silos and alarms when full. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
