Versatile Solids Flow Detectors Improve Process Performance

October 7, 2010

From automated systems with pneumatic lines to gravity chutes and feeders, solids flow monitors can help improve process performance. The solids flow detectors provide analog or relay outputs to indicate the flow / no-flow condition of powder and bulk solids materials in process lines. These units use microwave Doppler radar technology that makes them extremely reliable, according to the manufacturer. Solids flow detectors can be used in a variety of applications including consumer foods (cereal, sugar, cocoa, coffee), feed milling & grain processing, chemicals & pesticides, carbon black, coal and more. A variety of options make these units even more versatile.
