Plastic Production Delays

A major plastics production plant needed to closely monitors bulk inventory to avoid production delays. The plant provides a variety of products fed from plastic pellet storage silos. The facility also uses polyvinyl chloride (S-PVC) which is the world’s third-most widely produced synthetic polymer of plastic. delivers accurate, reliable, and continuous non-contact volume measurements. Enter ResinView.

Supply Chain Education Focused on Tech

You’ve heard of Industry 4.0, but have you heard of Inventory 4.0.? Manufacturing leaders are tackling supply chain issues with digital solutions. Leveraging Industry 4.0 solutions, a recent McKinsey survey showed 39 percent have implemented a control-tower approach to increase supply chain transparency. About 25 percent are fast-tracking automation to stem worker shortages. Steve Schulz, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Logistics & Supply Chain Management, said the program has taken a quick trajectory towards all the technology needed for this technological revolution.

Plastics Production, Close Resin Monitoring

CHALLENGE
A PVC production plant needed to closely monitor the number of plastic pellets in inventory but had trouble with sensors due to the amount of dust in silos and the low dielectric constant of the plastic material. The plant also faced a shortage of materials and rising costs meaning every pound of material was critical to maintaining production.

APPLICATION
Polyvinyl chloride (S-PVC) is the world’s third-most widely produced synthetic polymer of plastic. It’s used in everything from healthcare to construction products. In the U.S., about 40 million tons of PVC are produced each year. PVC powder is stored in silos prior to being delivered or packaged. Silos can be large in size containing thousands of tons per silo.

SOLUTION
BinMaster created a solution for a PVC production facility that needed to closely monitor inventory levels despite a difficult environment with dust in its silo. BinMaster’s 3DLevelScanner works well for the plastics industry thanks to the low-frequency, acoustic-based technology. The resin level sensor with multi-vision inventory software delivers accurate, reliable, and continuous non-contact volume measurements.
