Process instrumentation and control

All bulk solids handling and processing equipment and systems require some degree of monitoring and control. Most SHAPA members offer electronic controls for the equipment they offer. Some are independent suppliers of control systems, whilst others are specialist suppliers of instrumentation. So, whether you are looking for a state-of-the-art SCADA controls package, controls for a specific process, or instrumentation to install yourself, SHAPA members can assist.

SCADA systems


A single conveyor or processing machine will need controlling. The more complex a process becomes, the more important that it is correctly monitored and controlled. This is where the all-important instrumentation is essential.Silo contents measurement is a key area. Many silos are mounted on load-cells for stock control purposes and to enable specific weights of material to bedischarged. However, becausethe bulk density of silo contents can vary,level indication instrumentation is vital to prevent over-filling.Conveyors often need to be monitored, especially when they are enclosed or otherwise out of sight. Sensors can detect under-speed, over-speed, over-filling and belt-tracking for example. Elsewhere, controls need to be able to react to explosions, system blockages, sifter screen breakages, metal detectors, over-heated mills, etc. and take the appropriate action to prevent system damage or compromise to product quality. Because there are so many parameters associated withdry bulk materials handling systemsthe monitoring and control should be entrusted to those who understand the nuances of solids handling. SHAPA members are, of course, ideal partners – whether through the equipment suppliers themselves or the specialist instrument and control systems suppliers among them.
