Coal Bunker Temperature Monitoring

Application

Coal Bunker Temperature Monitoring

  • Temperature monitoring is required to prevent wind-fueled fire hazards.
  • The measuring points are up to 600 meters away from the control room.

Challenge

  • The temperature sensor measuring points change each time, because the shape of the coal mountain at the bunker varies with the amount of stock at any given time.

Solutions

  • Wireless system for flexible temperature measurement
    Survey system, gateway x1; transmitter (YTA) x3; repeater (YTA) x1
  • Verified communication of up to 600 meters without a repeater
  • Packet error rates of less than 2%

Benefits

  • Longer range communication
  • Less hardware
  • Robust communication with lower packet error rates

  • Chemical

    Chemical plants rely on continuous and batch production processes, each posing different requirements for a control system. A continuous process calls for a robust and stable control system that will not fail and cause the shutdown of a production line, whereas the emphasis with a batch process is on having a control system that allows great flexibility in making adjustments to formulas, procedures, and the like. Both kinds of systems need to be managed in available quality history of product, and to be able to execute non-routine operations. With its extensive product portfolio, experienced systems engineers, and global sales and service network, Yokogawa has a solution for every plant process.
