Some industries, such as the mining industry, face the challenge of having to measure the level of solids. Unlike liquids, they must content with the peaks and valleys depending on the consistency of the solids being measured. Emerson’s Asael Sharabi shared a story with me about a Canadian copper miner. In their mining process, they […]
