Emerson Process Management has introduced the Rosemount 5708 Series of 3D Solids Scanners for the continuous measurement of level, volume and mass of bulk solids and powders in large vessels, bins and silos. The new series uses acoustic measurement and 3D mapping technologies to provide accurate and reliable results even when measuring uneven or sloping surfaces under dusty conditions.

Rosemount 5708 Series 3D Solids Scanners provide highly accurate measurements of stored contents for improved process and inventory control. Unlike laser-based technologies that can take several hours to take measurements and require the process to be shut down, Rosemount 3D Solids Scanners provide continuous volume measurements that are representative of the material’s surface. They can measure practically any kind of material including difficult-to-measure fly ash and materials with a low dielectric that would challenge other technologies. The self-cleaning design requires low maintenance even when used in the dustiest environments.

Rosemount 3D Solids Scanners are suitable for measuring solids in silos, large open bins, bulk solid storage rooms, stockpiles and warehouses. There are models to deliver either level data only or both level and volume data using intuitive monitoring software. The Rosemount scanner maps the uneven surface typically found in solids applications and can provide the minimum and maximum level, the total volume and a 3D visualization of the surface.

The Rosemount 5708 Series includes level scanners for silos up to 5m (16 feet) diameter and 70m (230 feet) height, and there is also a version for larger vessels and silos up to 12m (39 feet) diameter and 70m (230 feet) height. Emerson can also supply systems of multiple devices to cover large areas such as 30m x 70m (98 x 230 feet) warehouses.

The new Rosemount 3D Solids Scanners are part of Emerson’s comprehensive range of level measurement devices for many applications across a range of industries. 3D solids scanners complement Emerson’s existing Rosemount 5400 Series of non-contacting radar level transmitters and the Rosemount 5300 Series guided wave radar for solids measurement in smaller vessels.
