Solids Scanner Uses 3D Mapping Technologies
Emerson Process Management introduced the Rosemount 5708 Series of 3D Solids Scanners for the continuous measurement of level, volume and mass of bulk solids and powders in large vessels, bins and silos. The new series uses acoustic measurement and 3D mapping technologies to provide results even when measuring uneven or sloping surfaces under dusty conditions.
Rosemount 3D Solids Scanners provide continuous volume measurements that are representative of the material’s surface. They can measure practically any kind of material including difficult-to-measure fly ash and materials with a low dielectric. The self-cleaning design requires low maintenance even when used in the dustiest environments.
Rosemount 3D Solids Scanners are suitable for measuring solids in silos, large open bins, bulk solid storage rooms, stockpiles and warehouses. Available models deliver either level data only or both level and volume data using intuitive monitoring software. The Rosemount scanner maps the uneven surface typically found in solids applications and can provide the minimum and maximum level, the total volume and a 3D visualization of the surface.
The Rosemount 5708 Series includes level scanners for silos up to 5m (16 feet) diameter and 70m (230 feet) height. There is also a version for larger vessels and silos up to 12m (39 feet) diameter and 70m (230 feet) height. Emerson can also supply systems of multiple devices to cover large areas such as 30m x 70m (98 x 230 feet) warehouses.
