Radar Transmitter: Casting factory

Foundry plants

Application: Cast sand storage tanks and sand bins


Most cast sand bins in foundry plants have agitators inside, which is not allowed to apply contact-type level sensors and switches.

Therefore, many foundry plants monitor only the upper level by a non-contact level sensor to avoid over-flow.

However, Matsushima radar transmitter can monitor the full range of the cast sand bins because of diminish the noise from the agitator.


Chemical resin tank


1. The non-contact sensor does not get mechanical impact with agitators operating inside the bin.

2. Matsushima radar transmitter can minimize the influence of facility constructions including agitators as the noise reflections.


For additional proposal:

Matsushima Dust Monitor is applied for monitoring the filter deterioration in foundry plants to detect filter deterioration in advance.
