Application

For flue gas desulfurization a continuous production of the lime milk is required, the lime is kept on hand in sufficient quantities in large silos. Lime tends to readily adhere to more or less anything, depending on its type and consistency, interfering with equipment like the operation of instruments. A robust, non-susceptible level measurement is therefore absolutely necessary for reliable lime logistics and stocking. That’s why a non-contact measuring instrument that also works well in the very dusty environment is essential here.
