Monitor levels salt processor's problems

Cargill's Solar Salt plant finds a bin level indicator that gives accurate readings and stands up to corrosion.

The salt produced at Cargill Inc.'s Solar Salt plant in Freedom, Okla., is primarily used for water softener recharging and secondarily as an animal feed supplement. As part of the production process, Cargill feeds the salt from a surge bin into a fluid bed dryer.

This can cause problems as an overabundance or lack of salt in the bin adversely affects the dryer's operation.
