Accurate, Real-time Measurements of Flyash
A cement producer operating a manufacturing
plant in Festus, MO. adds flyash to the cement in order to
improve the material characteristics of the cement produced
at this facility. This is typical in cement production.
Flyash in the cement industry is the finely divided residue
resulting from the combustion of ground or powdered coal, which
is transported from the firebox through the boiler by flue
gases. Flyash is a by-product of coal-fired electric generating
plants. The flyash used at this Missouri facility comes from
a nearby power plant and is stored in silos at the cement plant
site. In order to ensure efficient production of the plant,
the cement producer needs to know exactly how much flyash they
have at any given time.
The cement producer recently added another silo for their
flyash storage, increasing the total to two silos. The new
silo is about 60ft. (18.3m) high and 21ft. (6.4m) in diameter.
The amount of flyash available can impact their production
capacity significantly. Recent demand necessitated the additional
silo and the cement producer needed a way to accurately measure
the amount of material. The other silo has an aging sonar unit
and the producer was keen on moving away from this technology
to something that would be accurate and more reliable, even
during filling when heavy dust exists within the silo.
Quenton Schott of Missouri Filter has been representing
Monitor Technologies LLC for many years and has been selling
products to this Missouri facility for quite some time so it
wasn’t a surprise when Quenton got the
opportunity to meet their needs on the flyash silo. Flyash
is a powder and the internal silo atmosphere during filling
is extremely dusty, but Schott knew he had a solution for his
customer. After quickly consulting with Monitor Technologies,
the Flexar™ guided
wave radar continuous level sensor was recommended and quoted.
Installation and start-up was quick and easy.
Monitor’s technical support manager, Greg DeRudder, made
a courtesy call at the plant a couple of weeks after installation
and everything had been done perfectly. Even though flyash
has a low dielectric constant Flexar’s direct measuring
mode was extremely successful in providing real-time continuous
updates of the material level during filling and drawdown.
In fact, the cement producer claims the Flexar unit is “excellent” and
they couldn’t be happier. In fact, the sonar unit in
the old silo has since been replaced by Flexar as well.
||Solutioned Based Training
No matter what business you are
in and no matter what product or service you sell, training
is a component of human resources management that no company
