Solids level

The Rosemount 5708 Series 3D Solids Scanner, which uses acoustic measurement and 3D mapping technology to provide continuous level and volume measurement, is now suitable for a broader range of applications.

The device is now ATEX/IECEx certified for installation in areas with potentially explosive atmospheres, often found in solids measurement applications. A mounting adapter allows the device to be installed within electrostatic precipitator hoppers. By using its 3D visualisation capability to map out the surface of the fly ash that builds up in the hopper, operators can optimise the process, reducing cost, risk, and wear and tear on the hopper.

To overcome the difficulty of installation and integration, Emerson has introduced full SCADA integration support for the solids scanner. Users can now seamlessly integrate 3D visualisation of the surface level into the company’s Ovation or DeltaV distributed control systems, delivered directly to control room operators. Additionally, the scanner’s self-cleaning function can be complemented with a PTFE-coated antenna which helps extend maintenance intervals, especially where sticky materials are present.

Both the solids scanner and the Rosemount 5402 non-contacting radar, which provides bulk solids level measurement for applications with smaller sized vessels, can now be connected to a WirelessHART network using a Smart Wireless THUM Adapter. This enables easy integration to the automation architecture, reducing installation cost and time.
