Emerson Process Management Rosemount 5708 Series 3D Solids Scanner

Monday, 25 January, 2016 | Supplied by: Emerson Automation Solutions


The Rosemount 5708 Series 3D Solids Scanner from Emerson Process Management is designed to accurately measure level and volume of bulk solids and powders in large vessels, bins and silos using acoustic measurement and 3D mapping technology.

Uneven surfaces, irregular build-up and harsh, dusty and potentially explosive environments make measuring the level of solids in large vessels problematic. Designed to meet these challenges, the device provides users with greater control of inventories and entire manufacturing processes. It is also ATEX/IECEx certified for installation in areas with potentially explosive atmospheres.

The solids scanner features a mounting adaptor to install the device within electrostatic precipitator (ESP) hoppers. By using its 3D visualisation capability to map out the surface of the fly ash that builds up in the hopper, operators can optimise the process, reducing risk and wear and tear. It also has a self-cleaning function which can be complemented with a PTFE-coated antenna, helping extend maintenance intervals, especially where extremely sticky materials are present.

The solids scanner is also compatible with full SCADA integration support, enabling 3D visualisation of the surface level into Emerson’s Ovation or DeltaV distributed control systems, delivered directly to control room operators. The device can also be connected wirelessly to a WirelessHART network using a Smart Wireless THUM Adapter.
