Mass flow measurement in an opencast mine with SolidFlow 2.0

Production of montan wax

In an opencast mine brown coal with a very high content of wax is mined. From this coal raw montan wax is obtained in different process steps. The wax granulate, obtained in spray towers, is measured with the SolidFlow 2.0 in freefall in a downstream pipeline. With the continuously detected material quantity disruptions in the production process can be detected promptly.

Mass flow measurement in a lime plant with MaxxFlow HTC

Measurement of fine lime after a ball mill

A lime plant produces a wide range of products. Among others lime is ground in a ball mill to fine lime. The mill discharge is removed via screw conveyors and then measured in freefall by the MaxxFlow HTC. The use of the MaxxFlow HTC in different manufacturing processes simplifies the billing of processed material quantities.

Mass flow measurement of EPS granules with MaxxFlow HTC

Polystyrene sheets production

In the production of polystyrene sheets the EPS granules (polystyrene granules) are delivered in pressurized containers and is then transported into silos. The filling and removal takes place via a disc conveyor. So far, the quantity was determined by the level measurement in the silo. Our customer was now looking for an optimized quantity measurement.

Limestone flow measurement with SolidFlow 2.0

Exact measurement of flow rate

At a limestone manufacturing site, limestone is mined in a quarry and afterwards ground and transported to a silo. The material is transported into the silo via a pneumatic line. The quantity of limestone was determined on the basis of the theoretical data provided by the plant operator’s employees, however, the objective was to measure the material flow rate continuously.

Online flow measurement of fly ash

Information about the quality of flow condition

Fly ash does have the tendency to create blockages in the cone of the hopper and screw feeder. Our customer was looking for a solution to provide information about the quantity of material flow behind the hopper to control the flow condition. The flow measurement will give online information that provides important conclusions about the quality of the material transport. For example, blockages in the silo cone and in the rotary valve can be detected.
