Level Sensors for Fertilizers & Pesticides
Fertilizers play an essential role in refill nutrients in the soil that can used by plants. Fertilizer increases production efficiency to produce more food and sapcon will contribute to these industries by supplying our enormous variety of products.
Raw Feed Hopper
There are various types of fertilizers and the raw material feeded in the hopper depends on type of fertilizer produced. Mainly nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium fertilizers are used which is beneficial for plants. For calibration free solution SLP is highly preferred and Orbit will be a great option if you need adjustable time delay.
The buffer tank is small as compare to other hopper and silos which is used to store the phosphorus, obtained from phosphate rock. SLA Dot Display with Probe Sub Type: Heavy Duty (HD) is recommended which caters higher temperature and for vibrating rod type level sensor SLP is desirable which consumes low power.
During manufacturing of fertilizer, drying is the important part which reduce the moisture content with the help of rotary cooler and this process is subjected to high temperature. SLA Series is withstand at wide range of temperature and for continous monitoring level transmitter MPILC is suggested.
Recycle Bin Hopper
The oversized material is crushed and recycled to the recycle bin hopper in which it is stored and then again passed through the screen. In this place vibrating forks are not useful as the oversized granules are stuck in the fork so it can be replaced with vibrating rod Vibrosonde which is self-diagnose to errors and for ease of installations SLA Series can be useful.
Product Bin Hopper
Generally the sulphuric acid are stored and handled in the steel storage tank for special precautions to ensure safe operation.Elixir with halar coating insulation is recommended which create a layer on metal so that the acid has no direct contact with metal. SLC Series with full PTFE insulation is better for this application.
Bag House Hopper
The fertilizers are supplied to market in large bags. To fill these bags with fertilizers it is first delivered to large hopper which is known as bag house hopper. SLA Dot Display is better option which can be calibrated from remote location.
