Process optimization for hydropower plants
Solutions in the dam - Compact limit switch for process optimization for hydropower plants as a backwater detector for wood chip conveyance. One of the largest energy supply companies in the UK was looking for modern equipment for its northern dam with flexible metering technology. The electricity and natural gas supplier for local households and businesses has been focusing on hydropower generation for several years, in addition to wind power. The centrepiece of the dam’s hydropower plant is the installed wood chip system, which was recently implemented to curb pollution in the dam. Accumulated wood chips are transported to a designated storage area via a series of chain conveyors. These chain conveyors need to be monitored with modern and robust measurement technology. Namely, an indicator that functions as a full detector is required in the transfer chutes in order to detect a blockage with the wood chips in good time. Full detection for wood chip conveyance Together with the subsidiary UWT (UK) Ltd in Shrewsbury, a safe solution was found after several tests with oscillating probes that work according

Continuous & point level measurement with guaranteed Quality Level detectors detect media at a predefined position depending on the installation position.
Continuous & point level measurement with guaranteed Quality
Level detectors detect media at a predefined position depending on the installation position. Level detectors are mainly installed as full or empty detectors in the upper or lower part of a silo or container. This prevents the silo from overfilling or running empty. In combination with a level sensor, this results in a redundant system which additionally increases plant safety. If a certain fill level is of particular interest, the sensors can also be used as demand detectors. There are different technologies for level detection, which have their advantages and disadvantages depending on the application. For the selection, numerous process conditions have to be considered, which the sensor technology has to cope with. In addition, the requirements for bulk solids sensors differ from those for liquid sensors. For this reason, UWT offers a broad portfolio of different technologies such as rotary paddle switches, vibration level switches and capacitive sensors. This allows us to individually address their requirements in order to always provide them with the

Innovative custom solution with UWT Radar Sensor Solution-oriented: Side-mounted radar sensor for continuous level measurement on fly ash hoppers
Innovative custom solution with UWT Radar Sensor
Solution-oriented: Side-mounted radar sensor for continuous level measurement on fly ash hoppers In a coal power plant in South Carolina, continuous level measurement for fly ash hoppers was required. This specific challenge was effectively addressed by installing a side-mounted guided radar sensor with a 90° elbow shaft. In the energy sector, where environmental protection and safety are of high importance, UWT has once again demonstrated its ability to shine with thoughtful solutions and technical expertise. The challenge: Promoting environmental safety through precise level measurement. Fly ash is a byproduct of coal combustion and is an environmental hazard. Coal-fired power plants are obliged to collect this material for disposal or reuse. Precise level measurement is of the utmost importance in this context in order to avoid overfilling, which can lead to safety risks, high cleaning costs and possible fines. Proven methods, innovative approach In such situations, free-radiating sensors such as the NivoRadar® 3000 or NivoRadar® 4000 are usually

Radar provides the level monitoring solution within a UK paper mill
Radar sensor from UWT is the bespoke solution for content measurement Continuous level monitoring devices regulate and control liquid or solid levels in a processing plant, helping to streamline the operation, eliminate human error and thus maximise overall efficiency. And so level control devices should be and are an investment that needs careful research and consideration to ensure that the investment in such kit is wisely made. Our customer, a large paper mill based in the UK, approached UWT UK Ltd to achieve all the above for the monitoring of their coal silo and in a backwater tank. A mechanical system in the coal silo and ultrasonic technology in the backwater tank had both failed leaving the monitoring task being executed manually using a tape measure dropped in through the tops of the silo and tank. Clearly, it was time to upgrade. So the customer approached UWT UK Ltd to visit and inspect the applications and to advise on a long term, reliable solution within budget. Time & consideration During the site visit the UWT
