Our German partner MOLLET is the right choice for level measurement of a wide range of bulk materials, bulk solids or bulk cargoes in closed systems - check out their wide range of advanced and reliable gauges
Levels need to be monitored and/or measured in almost all industries. When it comes to bulk materials, bulk solids or bulk cargoes, these raw materials are stored in closed systems (tanks or silos).
In order to control the filling processes and avoid possible overloading of closed systems, we present below a set of solutions from our long-standing German partner MOLLET Füllstandtechnik.
In this context, we present MOLOSsafe below. This protects against overflows, damage to silo tanks and filter systems caused by overpressure or vacuum, dirt in the production plant and incorrect filling. The system indirectly serves occupational safety, the preservation of the asset value of the plant and the protection of the environment.
MOLOSsafe works on the principle of a signal from the fullness detector to the controller, whereby the silo filler automatically closes the filling hose. Depending on process and/or user requirements, the system can be supplemented with accessories such as a signal light, pressure valve, pressure indicator, demand indicator or void detector, which can be controlled by the control information system.
Level indicators for aggregates and mining industry
MOLLET’s robust level gauges and level switches are the right solution for a wide range of applications in the aggregates industry, mining, storage, processing and bulk solids transport.
Typical bulk solids: sand, silica sand, gravel, crushed stones, cement, concrete, lime, mixed minerals, stones, clinker.
Level indicators for the chemical industry
Many production processes in the chemical industry require level gauges that provide reliable measurement results even under extreme conditions – in contact with substances that can be corrosive, explosive, hazardous …
Typical bulk solids: fertiliser, calcium carbonate, talc powder, salts, toner, phosphate, aluminium powder, calcium carbide, magnesium sulphate, sodium carbonate, sulphur, zinc oxide.
Level indicators for pharmacy
In pharmaceuticals, only level sensors that meet the highest hygiene requirements and reliability levels are used. MOLLET products meet the highest hygiene standards.
Typical bulk solids: lactose, cellulose, sucrose, sodium dihydrogen phosphate, starches, silica, magnesium stearate, talc, cyclamate, gelatine.
Level indicators for the wood industry
The timber industry requires applications ranging from simple to quite robust level gauges, such as the DF11 and DF21 rotary level switches suitable for use in explosive atmospheres (EX). MOLLET products meet the highest ATEX standards.
Typical bulk solids: sawdust, wood chips, wood shavings, wood dust, wood pellets, grit.
Level indicators for plastics production
The plastics industry needs reliable and highly accurate sensors to measure filling levels
Typical bulk solids: plastic powder, plastic granulate, polystyrene (EPS), dry mix, compound, PET cuttings.
Level indicators for the food industry
The food industry needs reliable level gauges that meet high hygiene requirements.
Typical bulk solids: cereals, flour, powdered milk, sugar, salt, coffee, cocoa, tea, baking powder, spices.
Level indicators for the control industry
The control industry requires robust and reliable sensors to measure filling levels, partly under extreme operating conditions.
Typical bulk solids: cereals, various intermediates, pet food, cattle feed, chicken feed, pork feed.
Level indicators for the paper and pulp industry
Depending on the application, the paper and pulp industry uses very simple level gauges on the one hand and robust level gauges on the other.
Typical bulk solids: wood chips, wood shavings, cellulose, bleached cellulose, powdered cellulose.
Level indicators for power plants
In the field of power generation (power plants), very robust and reliable level sensors are used.
Typical bulk solids: mineral coal, lignite, carbon dust, coke, ash, wood chips, filter dust, refuse, special waste, ammonium sulphate from flue gas desulphurisation plants.
