Level applicationsIntense heat, vibration, dust, unstable or difficult materials.All pose challenges for level measurement in the mineralprocessing industry. Precise and accurate measurement isvital for efficiency and continuity of operations.Bitumen level monitoringAsphalt production requires continuous monitoring of the quantityof bitumen on site. Too high a level can mean costly rejection ofdeliveries. Too low a level can endanger production schedules. Thethick viscous nature of bitumen and delivery temperatures close to200 °C make traditional contact technologies unreliable because ofhigh adhesion build-up.SITRANS LR 200 non-contacting microwavelevel measurement device■ A cost effective solution using either a horn antenna forlarge openings or a PTFE rod antenna for openings as smallas 50 mm (2")■ Low frequency microwave transmitter offering high immunityto build-up, condensation, vapour and steam■ Sonic Intelligence and Auto False-Echo Suppression as standard,giving superior performance in process vessels■ 2-wire, loop-powered device cutting down on installationcosts and a PROFIBUS PA option available for bus-enabledsitesOptimal crusher controlThe depth of material in cone crushers is critical for plant efficiency.Any variation outside of tight boundaries directly affects materialsize and product quality. With end-customers demanding everincreasing product consistency, tight and accurate depth measurementis vital. Limited volumetric capacity combined with high materialflow rates mean levels can vary extremely quickly inside thecrusher bowl. Instrumentation has to cope with high levels of noise,vibration and dense airborne dust.MultiRanger and XPS transducer combination■ A reliable continuous level device using ultrasonictechnology■ A separated transceiver/transducer overcomes extremevibration■ The high frequency, non-contacting ultrasonic transduceris free of additional electronics and fully potted to providelong-term reliability■ Sonic Intelligence and Auto False-Echo Suppression arestandard, allowing for superior performance in harshconditions

LevelWaste fuel logisticsLiquid waste fuels, such as solvents, used oils and combustible liquids,pose both a hazard and an opportunity. Spillage or combustioncan be highly damaging. On the other hand, these substances alsoprovide a resource as an inexpensive alternative to traditional fossilfuels. Accurate level measurement not only ensures safer handling ofwaste fuels, but also improves inventory management through betterforecasting of fuel migration demands. On-site storage can be moreoptimally utilised and companies can take advantage of more flexibledelivery patterns.SITRANS LR 200■ Uses a non-contacting microwave so that measurementreliability is not distorted by build-up or vapours emissions■ Built-in Sonic Intelligence prevents interference from the agitatorsand vessel obstructions commonly found in waste fueltanks■ Design resistance to a broad range of chemicals and applicationsallows for instrument standardisation, providing companieswith cost and training benefits■ 2- wire, loop-powered device scales back installation costsand a PROFIBUS PA option available for bus enabled sitesClinker cooler bed depthAfter clinker exits the kiln, clinker cooler systems force airthrough the clinker to reduce temperatures from 1200 ºC andabove to around 200 ºC so that it can be handled and storedusing conventional equipment and silos. The bed depth needsto be measured as soon as the clinker is stable on the cooler buttemperatures can still register in excess of 1200 ºC posing difficultiesfor traditional measurement devices. Often the cooler isunder the burner hall with floor depths of just one meter makinglarge diameter entries uneconomical.SITRANS LR 400■ A 24 GHz high power con tinuous microwave transmitterenables measurement through the dust and vapours foundin the enclosed cooler space■ An exceptionally narrow beam angle enables use in accessdiameters as small as 150 mm■ The standard device is able to operate at very high temperatures,reducing or eliminating the need for ancillary cooling■ PROFIBUS PA option enabled for bus-enabled sitesHot clinker storage levelOnce transferred from the cooler to storage silos, residual heat inthe clinker combined with very high dust levels, continues to poseproblems for traditional measurement devices. The use of continuousnon-contact microwave technology, capable of operating inconditions in combination with a contacting level switch, offers areliable and accurate solution.1011SITRANS LR 400 and CLS 300■ Both devices are capable of operating in temperatures inexcess of 200 °C, safeguarding instrument life expectancy,with high temperature options also available■ Non-contact microwave technology with hi-hi alarm contactingtechnology back-up for ultimate security■ Predictive maintenance functions on both de vices ensurethat maintenance demands are kept to a minimum

Flow applicationsMany minerals, aggregates and cement processes rely on the maintenance or adjustmentof flow both to deliver optimal product quality and ensure continuity of production.The variable density and changing characteristics of slurry and other materials mean thatinstrumentation must be robust as well as accurate.

FlowAdditive dosage flowThe quality of the final product relies on accurate dosing ofchemical additives. At the end of the cement production process,for example, clinker is ground together with additives such as gypsum,slag and lime to form finished cement. Grinding mill additivesimprove the mill operation by increasing the efficiency ofthe grinding process and reducing energy consumption. Accuratedosage of the grinding additive can only be obtained if flow ratesare in direct ratio to raw material flow.1213SITRANS F C coriolis mass flow meter■ Offers high accuracy over a range of flow rates■ Multiparameter measurement enables simul taneousmonitoring of density leading to higher dosage quality■ Coriolis measuring principle enables measurementof non-conducting media■ Advanced communications allow access to themultiple measuring parameters being measuredSlurry volumetric flow measurementFlow measurement is critical for many minerals, aggregates andcement processes. But in some situations, for example mining, oreslurries containing up to 85 % solids are not unusual. Solids, metalparticles and other hard objects render traditional flow metersunstable and inaccurate. Using pulsed AC technology, Siemensovercomes these challenges, and delivers a flow meter with asignal twice as strong as conventional AC flow meters.SITRANS FM TRANSMAG 2■ Operators benefit from reliable readings, evenduring process upset conditions, enabling continuouscontrol of the process■ All SITRANS FM TRANSMAG 2 use the SmartPLUG techno logy.Specific sensor calibration data is stored directly in the meterbody not in the electronics■ A secondary automatic compensation coil prevents the effectof magnetic fluctuations arising from the measured medium

Pressure, temperatureand positioningMany arduous processes require accurate temperaturemeasurement or the monitoring of pressure. Having theright controls in place enables companies to achievemini mal maintenance, near-zero downtime and enhancedfinished product quality.Process temperature monitoringFluctuations in temperature provide an early indication of variationin process conditions. It is vital that temperature movements aremonitored continuously, not just to maintain product quality butalso to avoid damage to production equipment. The smooth runningof operations is safeguarded by measuring temperature in theprocess at points such as the preheater tower, the kiln, the clinkercooler, the coal mill, electrostaic precipitator and clinker silo.Siemens offers a range of temperature transmitters,suited for use in a number of process environments:■ Remote mounting capability allows isolation from hightemperatures and vibration sources■ Local display and local programming■ Advanced communications and predictive maintenancefunctions enable optimisation of maintenance cycles

Pressure Temperature Valve positioningAccurate process responseHydroclassification of pure silica sand is critical for a variety ofhigh-grade industrial operations such as float glass, fused silicaand quartz crystal lenses. Hydroclassifiers use water pumped at afixed rate from the bottom while sand is added from the top. Theupward water flow causes the lighter sand to pass out at the topwhile heavier sand sinks to the bottom to be removed by a valvefor subsequent drying and transport. The valves on the water inputand the classifier outlet must be able to respond to small processand pressure changes respectively.1415SIPART PS2 valve positioner■ Suitable for both inlet and outlet valve positioning tasks,offering a range of advantages when used to controlthe hydroclassifier■ Compatible with both rotary and linear actuators, enablingstandardisation on one device, saving costs relating to trainingand spare parts■ Advanced diagnostics including predictive maintenanceallow operators to plan maintenance in advance of failure■ Local or remote set-up possible on every unit■ Robust design for the primary industriesIntelligent cleaning cyclesExhaust air filtration systems depend on regular cleaning of filtersand equipment. Most dust collectors clean or backwash the filtersat pre-determined times irrespective of whether the filters needcleaning. As well as wasting plant air and increasing energy costs,the increased strain on the filter reduces its life. Indeed, a certainamount of caking can increase filter effectiveness by trapping thefiner particles passing through.SITRANS P pressure transmitter■ Provides data for an intelligent cleaning cycle by measuringthe pressure differential between the clean and dirty sideof the bag filter, enabling cleaning to be based upon actualrequirements■ 100 to 1 turndown allows standardisation with one pressuresensor suitable for a variety of applications■ Local display and programming capabilities■ Predictive maintenance functions enable maintenance prior todevice failure

Weighing andprocess protectionFrom immediate early warning alerts from remote locationsto ‘right first time’ load-out, weighing and process protectionhas a vital role to play in mineral, aggregate and cementoperations.Motion detectionBucket elevators and other feed conveyors lie at the heart of manyoperations and it is important that events such as conveyor slowdown,stoppage, bucket loss or chain breakdown are immediatelycommunicated to the control room. Motion sensing probes enablefaults to be detected in their infancy, minimising downtime andenabling rapid control and rectification of faults.Siemens range of motion sensing probes■ Designed specifically for the primary industries■ 100 mm sensing range allows detection on machinery withpoor tolerances such as bucket elevators■ The sensor is capable of penetrating stainless steel anddetecting the ferrous target behind■ Detection of conveyor slowdown, a common indicator thatthe mechanical elevator is overloaded

WeighingProcess protectionAccurate loadingSignificant time and cost savings are obtained through accurateload-out. Overloading leads to the time-consuming unloading ofexcess material and increased waste levels. Underloading leads tounnecessary time spent re-loading vehicles. An accurate weighingsystem at the loading point ensures vehicles are loaded correctly atthe first pass. Final loading weights are then simply verified at theapproved weighbridge.1617Siemens range of single and multi-idler weighing systems■ Suitable for retrofit to existing conveyor systems offeringaccuracy of up to 0.25 %■ Multifunctional electronics capable of performing batch,ratio and PID control functions■ Dual load cell primary element ensuring accuratemeasurement■ Advanced communications options availableA single weighing interfaceFor plants operating SIMATIC PCS systems such as the SIMATIC S7range, SIWAREX offers an alternative to vendor-specific weighingintegrators.

The FTC can integrate withany weighing system, regardless of manufacturer, thus offering asingle uniform weighing interface in a familiar format for SIMATICS7 users, negating the need for specialist training and support.SIWAREX range■ Offers a complete solution for all weighing requirementsacross the plant with modules suitable for static andloss-in-weight measurement tasks■ Easy integration into existing SIMATIC-based control systems■ Can be supplied as a complete weighing system with theinclusion of the primary weighing element

Gas analyticsGas analytics is central to a wide range of process controlissues, and environmental, health and safety concerns.The advent of emissions trading schemes and tighter regulatorystandards has added to the importance of accurategas analysis.Continuous kiln gas analysisContinuous analysis of oxygen, carbon monoxide and nitrogenoxide is essential for the accurate management of clinker quality,fuel usage and emissions. However, temperatures of up to 1400 °Ccombined with high dust, alkali and sulphate content limit the effectivenessof conventional gas analysis equipment. The FLK probeallows extraction of gas directly from the intake area of the rotarykiln. The sample gas is extracted by the probe, conditioned, andapplied to the gas analysers at around 200 °C.FLK probe■ Extractive measurement at cement kiln inlet enables anaccurate picture of kiln gas composition, and a continuousin situ analysis of gases allows detailed assessment ofburner control, fuel requirements and product quality■ Stable kiln control safeguards product quality and preventsthe emission of toxic materials into the environment■ The synthetic liquid coolant used by the FLK probe allowsthe sample gas to remain above its acid dew point, avoidingthe need for further treatment■ A stable oval probe design coupled with an emergencyretraction mechanism ensures reliable long-term operation■ High quality synthetic liquid coolant and a pressurised airpurging system means the FLK probe offers extended maintenancecycles and excellent reliability

Gas analyticsEmissions monitoringMonitoring exhaust gases leaving the stack is necessary for bothprocess optimisation and regulatory compliance reasons. Therange of local, national and international compliance requirementsmeans that, where secondary fuels are used, companies have to beable to monitor a wide range of gases, such as CO, NO, SO 2 , O 2 anddust as well as HCI, HF, Hg and THC.1819ULTRAMAT 23 continuous gas analyser■ A cost effective method of monitoring CO, NO, SO 2 plus O 2with just one analyser■ Extractive measurement principles to suit application needs■ Autocal with ambient air■ Siemens analytics devices can be seamlessly integrated intoautomation systems and have communications on boardCoal silo monitoring solutionA major explosion risk within cement plants arises from the threatof a self-ignition of coal stored within a coal silo. Self-ignition isdifficult to predict, as it depends on a number of factors such ascoal type and quality, pressure and temperature. An increase inCO levels is an important indicator. Once permitted thresholds areexceeded, inert gas needs to be pumped into the coal silo immediatelyto control the threat. Traditional gas analysers suffer fromslow reaction times and only take samples from one part of thesilo. Operators have no choice but to set low thresholds to allow areaction time buffer but then suffer the problem of disruptive falsealarms.LDS 6 laser spectro meter coupled with SITRANS LR 400FMCW radar level monitor■ A complete coal silo monitoring solution offering highspeed, in-situ monitoring of gas composition across thewhole diameter of the coal silo and accurate levelmeasurement■ 1 second response times mean that inertisation thresholdscan be increased, reducing inert gas consumption, reducingfalse alarms and cutting process downtime■ Easy installation requiring no calibration on site and verylow maintenance demands■ No on-site recalibration necessary■ The sensors are intrinsically safe and suitable for all ExapplicationsSiemens also offers■ Scalable solutions from a single analyser tocomplete shelters■ A comprehensive analysis package enablingcompliance with waste incineration legislation
