Lorry unload system
Lorry drivers couldn't see whether there was room to dump their load of clay without getting down from the cab and having a look. A traffic light was clearly required. Unfortunately the only way of measuring the level was directly through a heavy iron grid. Not possible, surely?
Modern ultrasonic devices supplied by Pulsar are able to tackle applications that would have been impossible even a
few years ago.
Pulsar’s Level Star unit was installed to improve loading efficiency for a large Imerys china clay pit when they feed
clay to ships for export around Europe. The unit had to accurately measure level even through a large metal grid.
Pulsar DATEM (Digital Adaptive Tracing of Echo Movement) echo processing software allowed the system to handle
the application successfully, improving efficiency and speeding the operation.
