Resin Powder Silo Solids Level Sensor

When a Southeast specialty plastics manufacturer needed reliable level measurement of their powder silo’s, they turned to Flowline. The plant formulates and manufactures plastic pellets for use in medical and biopharmaceutical products. During which, colored resin powder is blended with other resins to achieve the specified color. Powder inventory management is critical to production, and the company had ongoing failures of mechanical paddle and rotary type level switches. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our radar level sensors that provide reliable, non-contact measurement of powder in dusty applications. The pulse radar sensors provide continuous level data to the PLC, which in turn, monitors the silos and alarms for powder replenishment. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
