The FlowJam detects solid flows of all types for material movement.
A differentiation is made between the following switching states:
- Material flow
- Material clogging / standstill or empty pipe
The system operates with no contact, using microwaves in a process in which the material movement is detected by using the Doppler effect.
The FlowJam is an especially process-secure device, since the microwave can penetrate material coating on the sensor and reliably detect the material movement behind it. If container walls, housings or pipelines are not metal, it is possible to measure from the outside.
The FlowJam can also be used under difficult conditions such as high operating temperatures and pressures with the help of a process adapter.
