Waste incineration converts domestic and commercial waste into combustible gases and ash. Pyrolysis is carried out in the absence of air at temperatures up to 500 °C. The intermediate product, charcoal, is then further burned by adding air. Ash and synthesis gas with high thermal content are the end products. For continuous operation, the vessel must be loaded and emptied automatically. To this end, the level of material in the pyrolysis chamber and in the ash pan has to be measured.
Reliable backup detection in the chute
Optimal utilization of the ash container volume
Low maintenance requirements thanks to non-contact measurement
