Creating a Detailed and Accurate Picture of Solids Storage
Using two storage silos, Chemours can alternate filling and emptying cycles while the solids scanners provide an accurate continuous indication of inventory.
Figure 1: An acoustic level measurement instrument with phased-array antennas, such as the Rosemount 5708, uses three antennas to provide multiple vantage points so the signal processing software can create a detailed topographical surface profile.
Figure 2: Working with the known dimensions of the vessel combined with the surface of the product, a level instrument’s analytical software can calculate product volume with a high degree of accuracy.
Figure 3: With a detailed picture of the product distribution, it is a simple matter for a level instrument’s software to calculate the center of gravity for the contents in a vessel.
Figure 4: Virtual mapping divides the surface of the product into sections that can be monitored individually. It can call attention to specific areas where there is no change throughout any defined period of time.
