Versatile Solids Flow Detection

August 1, 2012

The Model SFI and SFD-2 series of rugged solids flow detectors provide analog or relay outputs to indicate the flow / no-flow condition of powder and bulk solids materials in chutes and pneumatic conveying lines using microwave Doppler radar. Low power microwaves sense motion within the chute or pipeline being monitored. Microwaves are virtually unaffected by ambient noise and light, heat, humidity, pressure, vacuum, high or low temperatures or dust. This provides maximum effectiveness in typical industrial application environments.
