What happens when the trackers aren't tracking?
Problems within pneumatic conveying systems can quickly cascade into large production issues for facilities. These can cause disruptions to batch products, overflows can create cross contamination between products or processes, and blockages can damage equipment or create safety hazards including combustible dust hazards. So it's understandable that fill level indicators are carefully monitored on bins or hoppers in manufacturing processes.
However, what can be done if these indicators malfunction for some reason? Having a fail safe or backup monitoring source for these systems has proven a wise investment for many facilities.
