Case study: How and why 80GHz level radar is increasing productivity in the screen house at E&JW Glendinning

27. June 2016
It's well known that following the extraction and crushing operations of aggregates, the screen house is the ‘engine room’ of a quarry where it processes and grades the aggregates. Its principle function is to sort the sizes of aggregates and ensure the right product is there, ready for coating, stockpiling or direct loading out onto transport. The main process challenges encountered in the screen house are the high dust levels, noise and vibration from the screens themselves and the associated machinery, as well as it being a very inhospitable environment for personnel.

80 Ghz a matter of frequency

06. June 2016
Understanding the benefits of 80 GHz radar and its importance for all liquid level measurement applications. With the recent launch of radar instruments in the 80 GHz frequency range for liquid level measurement, now is a good time to examine what’s behind this new direction in radar technology. So where does it come into its own and what are the benefits of using these new sensors in automated processes for control and inventory?
