Keeping processes under strict and accurate control, even in the toughest conditions, is critical to minimising downtime and maximising productivity. Siemens provides a unique portfolio of process instrumentation, including best-in-class transmitters, for the widest range of applications, measuring pressure, temperature, flow and level. All provide seamless integration with management and control systems.
On the Hillhead stand Siemens will show examples from its flow and emissions monitoring ranges, along with static/dynamic weighing and point/continuous level measurement. The SITRANS LR560 continuous level measurement device, with plug and play performance, is ideal for most solids applications, including those with extreme dust and high temperatures of up to 20°C, while the SITRANS F M MAG 8000 battery-operated water meter gives the flexibility to install a reliable water flow meter almost anywhere without sacrificing accuracy and performance. The SIWAREX WT241 weighing terminal combines a powerful weighing module and Siemens touch panel with an application-specific user interface, which can also be used independently of the automation solution.
Siemens also offers electro-pneumatic positioners, weighing technology, process controllers and recorders to ensure processes benefit from the most comprehensive, robust and dependable solutions. With extensive and in-depth experience of mineral, aggregate and cement industries, Siemens' process instrumentation is unique in being able to provide precise and integrated process automation, for both new facilities and existing operations.
Inefficient process control can be costly in product quality, safety and environmental terms, and by partnering with Siemens companies can optimise efficiency and productivity by reducing downtime, decreasing energy use, keeping the workforce safe and limiting environmental impact.
