SpeedFlow 2.0-Pipe

Tube version with different diameters

  • Sensor is made accordingly to the existing pipe diameter
  • Can easily be integrated into the process via flared tube end
  • Measurement without product contact

 

Use

The SpeedFlow 2.0-Pipe was specially developed for the continuous measurement of the speed of solids such as granules, powder and dust in metal pipes.
The sensor can be used in free fall lines or in pneumatic conveyors. The measurement is completely independent of the material. The range of application can start with a material speed as low as 0.75 m/s.

SpeedFlow 2.0-Pipe is particulary suitable for monitoring careful material transport, as there are no built-in components into the process flow.

Function

The SpeedFlow 2.0-Pipe uses the electrodynamic principle. The flow of the solid particles through the sensor cross-section leads to a charge transfer (induction voltage). These electrical signals are evaluated by an autocorrelation method. The defined distance between the electrodes thus calculates the speed.
The commissioning takes place in the installed state and by means of supplied software.
The speed is output as a 4 ... 20 mA signal.

 

Mounting and Installation

For the assembly of the sensor, the installation location is specified in accordance with the conveyed inlet and outlet paths. At the specified installation location the sensor is installed in the extisting pipeline via a standard flare connection.
The distance between sensor and analysis unit can be a maximum of 300 m.
