In modern ethanol plants, commodities such as grains, sugar cane or sugar beets are processed into alcohol and ethanol. Even the by-products and waste materials of the process are completely utilised. The ethanol is later blended with gasoline. Through the use of renewable resources for fuel, the consumption of crude is oil reduced and the carbon footprint of this energy is significantly lessened.
Level measurement with VEGAPULS 68
The different varieties of grain are stored for subsequent processing in silos over 20 m high. The non-contact radar sensor VEGAPULS 68 continuously measures the level in the silo. It ensures optimal filling without effect from the huge quantities of dust generated and without any cables stressing the silo mechanically.
Level detection with VEGAVIB 62
The vibrating level switch VEGAVIB 62 is particularly suitable as an additional level detection system. The rodshaped probe can be used for practically all solid bulk materials.
