Cement Batch Mix Plant Silo Radar Level Measurement

Cement Batch Mix Plant Silo Radar Level Transmitter

Cement Batch Mix Plant Silo Radar Level Sensor

When a Nevada concrete plant needed reliable level measurement of their batch mix silos, they turned to Flowline. The firm supplies ready mix concrete, rock and sand to municipal, residential and commercial customers throughout Las Vegas. Concrete orders are custom batched, blended and delivered via mix truck. During which, water, sand, powders and aggregates are dispensed into batch bins, weighed, mixed and loaded on to trucks. The bulk cement, fly ash and mineral powder inputs are contained in silos. There, operators complained that previous radar level sensors often became intermittent due to antenna powder build up, and required ongoing maintenance. For this reason, Flowline suggested our radar sensors with high power parabolic antennas that are unaffected by buildup, and ideal for cement silo applications. The radar sensors provide reliable level data to the PLC, which monitors the cement silos, and alarms for replenishment. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
