Ensuring Gypsum Quality

Elements of the ACO DMMS moisture measurement system installed at gypsum production process at E.On's MPP3 Power Plant.
Moisture Measurement
E.ON operate a modern coal- and bio-mass-fired power plant in the Maasvlakte port area in Rotterdam. The necessary desulphurisation is steadily controlled to produce a salable gypsum product. Its product quality is monitored via moisture measurement. Moisture measurement is also advisable to avoid caking in the whole process and to guarantee the best flow characteristics in all following transport systems.

From Garbage to Gold

The Milltronics made MMI belt scale and BW500 integrator need only minimum space.
Conveyor Belt Scale
What if you could reduce a time-consuming, complicated task from every other day to once a month? An integrated solid waste management company in India tried just that. Organic waste from the local municipality arrives at the company's facility and is loaded onto a conveyor. The company uses a belt scale to control and totalize the feed of material. The totalized amounts are used to calculate the price of waste from the city, so the company required accuracy and reliability.

Weighing in Motion

The BS143 model weighs three idlers on an inner frame that is supported by four load cells. This makes it the most accurate belt scale from Rice Lake Weighing Systems and is particularly qualified for higher capacities and high belt speeds.
Belt Scales
Established in 1946 as a repair shop for scales, mainly from the prevalent dairy industries, Rice Lake extended its portfolio with weighing equipment, like belt scales. Today they offer all kinds of scales all over the world. The article describes how to optimize a belt scale system by choosing the right indicator for particular application.

Can you go with the Flow? Solids Flowmeters for Industrial Applications

Solids flowmeter systems are used in any industry from food to power generation.
Bulk Solids Flow
Solids flowmeters are an interesting solution to indicate flow rates in pipes and chutes. Matt Morrissey, Product Manager Weighing Technology at Siemens, says 'interesting' because “they are only moderately accurate, costly, require a lot of tuning after installation and are usually only as good as the whole process around them.”
