You can install the best monitoring equipment, but if it’s not tested, it might not prevent potentially explosive situations. Material handling equipment such as bucket elevators and conveyors can create dust hazard conditions. Monitoring this equipment can prevent malfunctions resulting in serious injuries or death, damage, and loss of revenue. Thorough system testing of the sensors and controllers is important.
A live working bucket elevator will demonstrate functional testing methods and verification of sensor and controller operation. Learn about a remote monitoring website to record test results. You can even try out the testing tools.
