2016 - Lumber treating plant, Arch Wood Protection, Minnesota USA :: Distributor: Process Measurement and Control Company (PMCC)
A lumber pressure treating company in Minnesota had issues with their non-contact radar level measurement product and contacted Process Measurement & Control Company to discuss the application and seek a solution.
The lumber pressure treating company has several process tanks with a high percentage of water vapor in the tank vapor space that was condensing on the radar antenna. It was determined that excessive condensation began to form on the antenna of the radar transmitter, which caused unacceptable measurement error.
After multiple re-programming attempts, it was recommended that guided microwave MicroTREK transmitters be installed as a replacement.
In the facility of Nelsa - a company owned by MOL group - hydrocarbons fuels (gasoline and diesel) and oil for heating plants (kerosene, BTZ: low sulfur fuel oil) are stored.

In the so-called contact manufacturing process of sulphuric acid continuous level measurement solution is needed for the mixing tank where oleum is diluted with water. The conditions in the tank were very challenging. There is the very aggressive atmosphere with strong fumes added with level fluctuations and not to mention the high humidity. The MicroTREK Guided Wave Radar is perfectly protected against any chemical reaction because all parts are covered with PFA/FEP coating providing long-term reliable level measurement.
Instrumentation for chemical storage tanks that needed to be continuously measured with a high level alarm indication and completed with a complex controlling system. The outside horizontal cylindrical tanks and are regarded as ATEX, hazardous environment, therefore all the elements of the measurement system must be intrinsically safe
Our partner is a Hungarian facility of a leading European manufacturer of polystyrene extruded foam insulation boards where the raw material storage tanks needed to be continuously measured. The customer is interested about the volume in the two tanks and it is calculated from the measured level value provided by coaxial probe type MicroTREK guided wave radars. The measurement data is displayed by UNICONT PMM units which are responsible for the batch controlling. There is an additional high fail-safe protection done by a NIVOSWITCH mini compact vibrating fork level switch. The complete measurement system has intrinsically safe protection.
NIVELCO solid level measurement instrumentation can be employed in practically all phases of limestone processing. The EchoTREK STD / EasyTREK SCD ultrasonic or the MicroTREK TDR level transmitters are ideal choice for accurate level measurement in extremely harsh, dusty circumstances.
