Optimizing Grain Bin Systems: A Comprehensive Guide to Conveyor Systems and Dwyer Instruments

Grain bin systems are the cornerstone of modern agricultural storage, offering a secure and efficient solution for managing harvested grain. Among the critical components of these systems, conveyor systems play a pivotal role in ensuring the smooth movement of grain within the bins. In this article, we will delve into the workings of various conveyor systems used with grain bins, providing insights into their functionality. Additionally, we will explore how Dwyer Instruments’ innovative products can enhance the monitoring and control of these conveyor systems.  Continue reading “Optimizing Grain Bin Systems: A Comprehensive Guide to Conveyor Systems and Dwyer Instruments”

Lift stations are used to transmit wastewater to a treatment facility. In residential areas, lift stations may be located in a central point to a subdivision or community. Lift stations are pits located at points in the wastewater system to collect the wastewater and usually have two submersible pumps. In order to use gravity to move the wastewater along, it must be continually elevated to provide height to generate the flow. Wastewater in the lift station is pumped out to a higher level, from where it can flow on to the next lift station or to the treatment facility. As excavation and trenching for sewer pipes can be costly, using lift stations (and gravity) saves a substantial amount of money.  Continue reading “Pump Controller with Level Transmitter Control Pumps in Wastewater Lift Stations”

Rock & Roll with Belt Conveyor System Solutions

With one huge scoop, you grab the rock and stone in front of you, collecting it in the bucket of your front-end loader. You move forward, ready to dump the material into the load chute of the conveyor. Someone gives a shout, arms waving and signaling you to stop: “Hold up! We’ve got a jam.” The belt conveyor is down again for maintenance, and you’ve got some time on your hands; this could mean several hours of downtime for the team.

Hauling components is an important part of the production processes of varying industries including concrete, chemical, mining, wastewater treatment, and more. Within these bulk handling operations, belt conveyors are an economical way to transport materials of varying sizes.  Continue reading “Rock & Roll with Belt Conveyor System Solutions”
