  • Using 3D Level Sensors to Solve the Toughest Food Storage Challenges

    For almost a decade, 3DLevelScanners have been providing highly accurate level and volume measurement in challenging materials contained in bins, tanks, and silos. The only sensor to measure and map the material surface, 3D scanners keep pushing the boundaries - and addressing the concerns of increasingly complex food operations. This article shares the newest innovations in 3D level measurement, addressing some of the toughest food storage scenarios.

  • Get the Point

    Description: Only change to description is removing arbitrary line breaks. Point level indicators are an affordable, accurate tool to measure and alert to inventory high and low levels. Easy to set up and configurable to fit a wide range of application needs, point level indicators are a must-have for a safe, efficient operation. This whitepaper details what users can expect from a point level device and explores point level options in the marketplace and considerations when choosing a sensor.  

  • Using Software to Simplify Solids Inventory Management in Silos

    Inventory management is a complex and tedious job. Storing inventory you cannot see – in bins and silos – is particularly risky if manual measurements and estimations are used for calculating inventory value. Advancements in level sensors that measure solids and powders and software that processes and presents the measurement mitigate the risk, providing automated, accurate, and accessible inventory management systems to fit almost any application. Check out this whitepaper to get a deeper look at the benefits of pairing sensors with software to manage solids inventory.  

  • How to Select a Continuous Level Sensor

    Using a continuous level sensor to monitor the material level in your storage vessels can help your operation maintain efficiency—preventing costly process interruptions and keeping you up-to-date on inventory level. This whitepaper is intended to help operations choose a continuous level sensor without having to wade through volumes of technical data. It briefly describes the sensor types available, addresses pros and cons of each type, and explains what information is needed to work effectively with a sensor supplier.

  • Mixing Materials for Friction Linings - How to Avoid De-Mixing, Increase Product Quality, and Significantly Reduce Processing Times

    It is imperative that friction linings perform well, and mixtures that are pressed to form friction linings must meet very high homogeneity requirements. However, conventional mixers can pose problems and affect productivity due to long material processing times, de-mixing, and poor product quality. There is an alternative mixing technology, one that offers solutions to the above. Discover how and the various benefits in this white paper.

    Top Chemical Engineering Wages by U.S. State

    Chemical engineers are working in every part of the United States, but according to employment data released by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) this year, certain states and metropolitan areas in the country have significantly higher numbers of professionals working in the occupation than other locations. This document shows the average median wage for chemical engineers for each U.S. state. Download this file now to see where how your salary compares to other chemical engineers in your area. 

  • Selecting an indirect thermal technology

    Choosing the right thermal technology is critical to reducing time-to-market, being cost-efficient and achieving better thermal processing results.

  • AN EASIER WAY TO REDUCE FERTILIZER DUST AND CAKING

    Effectively control dust and caking in the fertilizer industry utilizing ambient-temperature coatings. Fugitive dust and product caking present unique issues for fertilizer handlers. Historically, effective solutions required complicated and often cost-prohibitive processes, such as heating of both the fertilizer and the treatment, to achieve optimal results. New solutions that do not require the heating processes and financial investments therein are now available. The question is: Are they as effective as conventional treatments?  

  • True Infrared Detection vs. Traditional Spark Detection

    Both true infrared and spark detection systems can be useful tools. So, it is important to understand the principle differences as well as some important limitations of each technology before making a decision about which to select for any given application.  

  • Buyer’s Guide: Taking the Guesswork Out of Purchasing a Dust Collector

    A variety of dry dust collection options are available on the market, some of which are optimized for specific industries or applications. But how you do decide what dust collector is best for you and what supplier to use? Sly’s new Dry Dust Collector Buyer’s Guide can help you navigate the complex specifying and purchasing process once you decide a dust collector or baghouse is the right solution for your air pollution needs.
