A project of operating a brand new waste-to-energy line gave an electrical engineer the chance to work with a field mounted HART temperature transmitter like TXUN-HT for the first time. This municipality-owned waste management company with several facilities provides, among other, waste incineration, district heating and recycling. In all, the company services a population of ca. 202,000 people.
The facility opened their newest waste-to-energy line. It is designed for burning 10 tons of waste per hour and together with the already existing line, it will produce 80 GWh of energy per year and 370 GWh of heat per year. Part of the project are also 45 pieces of field mounted HART temperature transmitters like TXUN-FD. They are used to monitor a steam circuit and for flue gas control.What’s Next?
After the very positive experiences with the temperature transmitters on the new line, the company expects that more of them will be installed on the older line in the future. That way monitoring both waste-to-energy lines will become easier and more efficient, and the teams maintaining them would be able to enjoy fully the benefits of the visual control and detailed diagnostic.
