BinMaster is excited to join the K-State Bulk Solids Innovation Center (BSIC) as it shapes the future for bulk solids industry professionals. The company has been asked to educate students about level measurement at the upcoming three-day course on Storage and Flow of Bulk Solids taking place March 31 to April 2, 2020.
BinMaster’s session will cover the types of point and continuous level measurement sensors with a focus on how each technology works and is applied in a plant environment. It will demonstrate how to integrate an inventory management system into a plant using wireless communication devices and software to make their operation more efficient. It is designed to provide practical knowledge that can be applied immediately upon course completion.
“It is a privilege to have been asked to participate and be able to contribute to the educational mission of the BSIC,” says Nathan Grube, course instructor and Regional Vice President of BinMaster. “The coursework provided by the Bulk Solids Innovation Center prepares industrial professionals to tap into the power of the latest technology, and it’s an honor to be part of that.”
The training will be held in Salina, Kansas and is open to students and professionals interested in furthering their knowledge in bulk solids handling. Registration for the course is open to both domestic and global attendees. The cost for the three-day course is $1,300.
BinMaster got its start in the early 1960s when a local seed company asked Garner Industries to fabricate a switch to alert when bins were full. Today, BinMaster is a privately held, independent US manufacturer of point and continuous level indicators and inventory management systems used for monitoring bulk solids or liquids in bins, tanks, silos and hoppers. More than just level sensors, the company offers complete solutions using wireless devices and web applications to send data to a control room, console, smartphone, tablet, or PC. Robust, custom systems can be developed for a single site or networked across a multi‐national operation. BinMaster is certified to ISO 9001 quality management systems—requirements.
