The mining industry uses chemicals as ‘flotation’ agents in the recovery of sulphide minerals containing metallic elements (e.g., copper, nickel, silver, gold) from ore slurries. Sodium ethyl xanthate (SEX) is one of most common flotation agents, and it decomposes to form ethanol, carbon disulfide CS2, and Carbonyl Sulfide COS. These harmful gaseous compounds must be monitored from the indoor air at the enriching plant.
Ultrasonic sensors mount at the top of the tank facing down toward the liquid surface. By measuring the distance to the liquid, and knowing the tank height and geometry, the level or volume is calculated. Tanks can have a nitrogen blanket or be open top. The sensors typically thread into a tank fitting, and can connect to other equipment by analog or serial data means. They can also identify full, empty or reorder levels. A wireless connection can also be provided to access local tank data without installing...
As a result of global industrialisation and increasing mobility, the demand for crude oil and natural gas continues to grow. As the amount of oil and gas produced increases, so too does the need for transportation and further processing facilities.
STS has many years of experience in the area of desalination facilities. In these situations, STS products are primarily used in the pressure monitoring of pipe systems and water level measurement in tanks and basins.
Senix offers wireless monitoring of local tank or streams using our battery powered AirWire technology. Levels can be monitored inside plants or corporate campuses without running wires or conduit, saving significant cost. Level data can be displayed on a local area network (LAN) or transferred to the cloud for viewing by authorized users. Transmitters located at each site can report to one or multiple receivers, and level alarms can be set to warn of high or low levels.

Banner Engineering`s SureCross product line offers reliable wireless industrial I/O monitoring and control solutions for most applications, including these examples of wireless installations for the oil and gas industry.
A Surge Tank is used at the Okatokes Rec Centre Swimming Pool to regulate pool level. By monitoring level in a surge tank the non-contacting Greyline LIT25 Level Indicating Transmitter controls makeup water flow through a solenoid valve.
The pollution flows into the feeding tank. The optimal fill level can be controlled manually, using a switch through a fixture. The pollution is lifted upwards by the spiral over the divider pipe, which can be fitted with up to four filter columns. The solid material is concentrated and dehydrated in the spiral on the way up and released over the solid waste chute at the top. From there, it can be taken away by a conveyor. The precipitator efficiency is much higher using a very small 100μm fi lter than a...
