This is a comprehensive reference on state-of-the art controls and systems for measuring and monitoring bulk solid materials. Written by Joe Lewis, 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.
