Maturing Drum Temperature Monitoring


Maturing drum temperature monitoring

  • Replacement of gauge temperature sensor
  • 150 seconds per revolution
  • Each batch process takes about four hours


  • Temperature is monitored to maintain consistency of the viscous fiber entering the drum.
  • Existing system requires manual temperature readings.
  • Wired temperature measurement is not available because the tank is rotating.


Wireless temperature measurement

  • Gateway x1, transmitter (YTA) x1 at measuring point on the maturing drum
  • Repeater x2 at fixed locations pointing in different directions (for redundancy)
  • High quality wireless communication was confirmed.The PER (packet error rate) was 0%.
  • The installation locations of the repeaters must be carefully chosen because the radio signal path changes dynamically as the transmitter rotates.


  • On-line temperature measurement.
  • Stable measurement of rotating tank.
  • Robust communication with lower packet error rates.
