What is the Best Level Measurement Solution for Pulp and Paper Industry?

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

The paper making production process creates a very harsh working environment for the level instruments and it is very important that manufacturing companies monitor the progress of these critical production processes. For decades Drexelbrook has provided instruments for accurate level measurement with the safety features required for working with chemicals, pulp slurry materials and wood-based medias. 

When working with wood materials and in dusty environments, explosion hazards and fire risks are always a concern. However, another thing to consider is the risk of sawdust sticking to the level sensors causing faulty measurement. In that case, the IntelliPoint RF admittance level probe is an ideal product as it ignores coatings on the sensor, and still provides reliable level measurement.

Pulp production can be extremely harsh on level instruments used, and in some cases, it can even affect the longevity on the instrument. Drexelbrook frequently recommends radar level transmitters for performing high accuracy, point level or continuous measurement on this type of media. Drexelbrook’s line of open air radar and guided wave radar products utilizes the most advanced signal processing techniques that matches the complex needs of pulp production, providing the customers with some of the most accurate level transmitters on the market.

The process of paper production is complex, therefore Drexelbrook has created an overview of optimal solutions depending on the individual application. The right solution not only provides safety for production workers, but also improves the workflow, thereby creating a better bottom line.

So, what is the best level measurement solution?  When calculating the most cost-effective solution, we take for granted that quality measurement and minimizing production breakdowns due to product failure is crucial for all professionals. If you do your calculation with the lifetime of the product in consideration, then Drexelbrook should be a part of your solution.
