3D Solid Scanning in Coal Mining


Coal Silo

Application: Following a screening and grinding process, coal is typically delivered to large storage silos via rail or conveyor belt.

Challenges: The coal silos are large in size, containing thousands of tons of material. If the end user wishes to know his real time inventory of raw coal and have it connected to his ERP systems (being able to make room for raw coal coming into the silos and getting shipments ready through trucks and trains heading to end users) then an accurate measuring system is required. Rosemount's systems are the only systems that can accurately measure the coal in such big silos, by using the unique surface mapping technology.
