  • Simplify Solids Inventory in Silos: Let software do the hard stuff.

    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 automating the measurement of solids and powders using level sensors and in the software that processes and presents the measurement data is vastly simplified. It is graphically friendly, presented in real time, and accessible from wherever there is internet access.  

  • NFPA 652 Countdown: Crucial Elements to Include in Your Combustible Dust Hazard Analysis

    Dust collection systems are one of the most critical elements to be included in a dust hazard analysis because they are a leading cause of combustible dust incidents. This eBook will discuss how to use a simple checklist analysis for your DHA, the most common areas to address in your DHA (dust collector housing, inlet ducting, return ducting and hopper) and the most common controls or protection devices used to make these areas safe.

  • Dangerous Dusts in Manufacturing: Knowing the Facts Helps Protect Your People and Facilities

    Many dusts can be dangerous when they are produced in a manufacturing or processing setting. When allowed to accumulate in the air or on surfaces, they can quickly cause various hazards. This white paper briefly discusses a variety of dangerous dusts including combustible, silica, hex chrome, beryllium, mining, and metalworking dusts.   Camfil https://www.camfil.com/en  https://www.camfil.com/en/privacy-policy  

  • DHA Methodology: Using a Prescriptive vs. Risk-Based Approach

    The purpose of this white paper is to examine the differences between Prescriptive and Risk-Based methodologies for conducting Dust Hazard Analysis, or DHA. Readers of this paper will come away with the knowledge to understand the differences and determine which approach better suits their needs.


    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 your inventory level. This whitepaper is intended to help operations choose a continuous level  sensor without having to wade through volumes of technical data. It will briefly describe the sensor  types available, address the pros and cons of each type, and explain what information you need to  gather before working with a sensor supplier. 


    For almost a decade, 3DLevelScanners have been providing highly accurate level and volume measure- ment in challenging materials contained in bins, tanks, and silos. The only sensor to measure and map  the material surface, it sends pulses in a 70° beam angle, taking multiple level measurements and  accounting for uneven surface topography when calculating volume. Each sensor comes with 3DVision  software that reports the lowest and highest points detected and the average level based upon a weighted  average of all measurements in the bin. For the MV and the MVL models, a colorful graphical representation  indicates where high and low spots exist in the silo.


    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.    

  • The Definitive Guide to Powder Characterization

    From pharmaceuticals, paints and coatings to metal components, catalysts and batteries, particles and powders underpin the performance of a vast array of every day products. In this white paper, we will showcase the suite of analytical technologies to support the control and engineering of powder performance, from the structure of individual particles through to the flow of bulk powders. The aim is to provide an overview of how different techniques work, the data that can be generated and its value in industrial applications.

  • 7 Keys to Selecting an Equipment Supplier for Collecting Combustible Dust

    If your operation generates combustible dusts, you are at risk for an explosion. Whether you have a dust collection system in place or plan to install a new one, it is critical that your equipment supplier has the experience and know-how to provide the best advice. This eBook provides seven questions that will help you determine if your supplier is the right fit for your company. The book covers NFPA compliance, filtration efficiency, dust testing and more.

  • How Various Types of Screening Motion Can Impact Performance

    Download this white paper to learn about the basics of mechanical screening motions and how the different types of screening motion can impact the efficiency and efficacy of screening in different applications. Screening is the mechanical process of separating dry bulk materials based on particle size. Material is fed into a screener, which utilizes precision-woven screens configured to sort the material according to the desired size. The screeners use various types of motion, and the type of motion used can have a direct impact on performance.
