The Volcan was designed specifically for installations inside ESP hoppers, above the fly ash. Using a 3 horn array the scanner maps the entire surface of the material, not just one point, to collect necessary data. This means that managers can now literally see in real time what is going on inside the hopper.
It's dust penetrating, precise even with low dielectric constant material and its inherent self cleaning technology is very effective. These features qualify it as a highly suitable solution for the harsh fly ash environment.
Knowing the actual situation within the hopper allows managers to make informed decisions and control the process better. This could mean taking preventive measures such as turning hopper wall heating on where buildup seems to be starting. It could also mean less frequent hopper emptying and early detection of system malfunctions.
