N. American Tech Outlook: The Boone Group

by Emily Buckley
A world leader in aeration, dust control, temperature detection and hazard monitoring, The Boone Group takes ideas from conception, design, manufacturing and installation to after-sale service.
The Boone Group was formed in 1994 with three goals in mind: to maintain an experienced, knowledgeable staff; to ensure the highest-quality products; and to provide outstanding service.
The Boone Group is a complete turnkey company that helps with all installations (except electrical hook-ups). Before shipment, all orders are checked for quality and working condition. The company specializes in grain temperature cable, lead wire and instrumentation, as well as hot bearing, belt alignment and motion detection to ensure against facility downtime. Products are manufactured to fit a customer’s specific needs.
The model BTA bearing temperature, belt alignment and motion detection system from The Boone Group features a bright, clear display that shows location, temperature and alarm set points, which are selected by the operator. The system’s capacity of 256 bearing and belt sensors — in probe or surface style, half-moon or round disk — will complete a full scan in 160 seconds. For smaller systems, eight sensors will be scanned every five seconds. The BTA system can incorporate up to eight under-speed and over-speed motion sensors by using the BTA Auxiliary Motion Module. Readings can be displayed in Fahrenheit or Celsius, and data can be downloaded to a printer or computer. An automatic, internal system check ensures reliability. We use shielded thermocouple wire on all systems.
