Detection of empty state
During the unloading of limestone powder, silo vehicles are pressurised to the required level using compressed air units controlled by the driver and conveyed to the appropriate silo. Prompt detection of the empty state of the silo vehicle was not possible, therefore, product transfer was often finished too early or unnecessarily long, costing time and excessive use of compressed air. The customer’s aim was to automate the unloading of the silo vehicle and to create a reliable signal when reaching the empty state.
Monitoring of ground material in various industries
In many industrial processes control screening and fractionation play an important role. The particle sensor Paddy monitors ground material online and detects a screen break promptly. This increases the process reliability and avoids expensive and time-consuming downtimes.
Material flow monitoring in a mining company
A mining company extracts kaolin and crystal quartz and refines these materials. During the manufacturing process the FlowJam monitors the filling of a silo. With a Flow/No Flow signal the proper function of the feeding conveyor belts and intermediate feeds can be controlled and assured.
