Measuring PVC Level In Silos

A company that manufactures and processes PVC stores a variety of PVC shapes in several slim silos reaching heights of more than 65 feet (20 m). The level in the silos must be continuously measured to ensure a reliable production supply. The atmosphere in the silos is extremely dusty and the PVC dust is very sticky. Level measurement was done using ultrasonic devices, but this method often failed due to dust build up and signal interference in the ullage space. In an effort to find a suitable device, radar measuring devices from different manufacturers were installed as test units. This paper explores the chosen solution and selection reasons.

The Challenge and Solution Inventory Management of NGLs

Endress + Hauser
Storage and reconciling inventory of Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) present different challenges depending on where this is done in the value chain. This paper is about a central storage facility where NGLs are piped in from several gas plants (single owner), trucked in liquids from diverse owners as well as liquids piped in from a third party.

Associated Apparatus: The Safe and Most Affordable IS Solution

Moore Industries
Significant savings, both initial installation and ongoing maintenance costs, for your intrinsically-safe (IS) facility or project can be achieved by selecting associated apparatus as the IS barrier in your system. Tina Todd, Director of Engineering at Moore Industries, gives you a brief introduction to intrinsic safety, the different components in an intrinsically-safe system, and the two different types of barriers. This paper also explains why selecting an associated apparatus as the IS barrier provides the most economic and effective use of IS technology.
