Measuring Level, Volume, and Mass of Bulk Solids

Some exciting news on measuring bulk solids level, mass, and volume came out today. In a release, Emerson introduces 3D solids scanners for highly accurate continuous level and volume measurement of bulk solids, it notes:

Rosemount-5708-Series-3D-Solids-ScannersRosemount 5708 Series 3D Solids Scanners provide highly accurate measurements of stored contents for improved process and inventory control. Unlike laser-based technologies that can take several hours to take measurements and require the process to be shut down, 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 that would challenge other technologies. The self-cleaning design requires low maintenance even when used in the dustiest environments.

I wanted to share some YouTube videos developed by Emerson’s team managing the Rosemount brand. The first, Rosemount 5708 Series 3D Solids Scanner : taking the guesswork out of measuring solids (3:04) shows how these devices measure the level and volume of bulk solids using dust-penetrating, low-frequency acoustic waves.

The second video shows the installation process (4:32).

The third and final video show the quick configuration process (2:40).

If you’ll be joining us at the October 6-10 Emerson Exchange, make sure to catch up with the Emerson team showing the Rosemount 5708 Series 3D Solids Scanner in the exhibition area. Or, connect and interact with other level measurement experts in the Level track of the Emerson Exchange 365 community.
