Point Level Capacitance Switch to Measure Fly Ash in Hoppers

Choosing the right level switch technology for this demanding application can be tricky

Monitoring fly ash level poses a lot of challenges for the operator at a power plant. Specifically in the hoppers around the electrostatic precipitator area of a coal-fired power plant, it is crucial to monitor the level of fly ash. An overspill condition around the fly ash hoppers can lead to paperwork dealing with OSHA and EPA regulations for a hazardous material spill, apart from lost production time due to cleanup.
