Velocity measurement for careful material transport

SpeedFlow 2.0-Pipe

Application

For the production of hygiene products, the required fibre material has to cover long conveying distances.
Too fast conveyor speeds cause a high loss of material, because the fibre material turns into dust. This dust development results in less yield at the end of the process as well as damaging the filter systems.
Due to this problem, the manufacturer searched for a velocity measurement without material contact to ensure that the specified conveying speeds were not exceeded and to guarantee the required careful material transport.


Process data

Customer: Manufacturer of hygiene products (Germany)
Material: Fibre material
Installation: Conveyor pipe (DN 350)
Function: Measurement of material speed for careful transportation


The solution

The SpeedFlow 2.0-Pipe sensor is designed for continuous velocity measurement of solids such as granules, powders and dust in pipes.
The sensor is manufactured according to the existing pipe diameter and can then easily be integrated into the process.
It can be installed in any type of transportation (free fall, pneumatic air flow, pneumatic dense flow, transport over inclined plane) and has no built-incomponents in the flow.
The measurement is completely material independent. The application area starts at a material speed of 0.75 m/s.


Customer benefit

- Gentle material handling
- Protection against dust arising at the filter systems
- Increase in material yield / reduction of material scrap
- No calibration required (Plug & Play)

Screen break detection for monitoring of ground material Particle sensor for on-line monitoring of coarse grain in the flow
Screen break detection for monitoring of ground material
Particle sensor for on-line monitoring of coarse grain in the flow Application In many industrial processes control screenings and fractionation play an important role, as well as the reliability of the used screens. In continuous processes a screen damage can cause significant costs. In case of such a damage great quantities of screening material have to be destroyed or sieved again. A product recall, if necessary, can be very expensive for the manufacturer. The analysis of grain size in a material flow is time consuming and not suitable for the detection of a sieve failure arising in a short term. Even a continuous maintenance or a regular exchange of the sieves can‘t prevent a defect. The screen break detection Paddy is helpful here. Process data Costumer: Bulk processors and manufacturers Material: Any kind of bulk material Installation place: Discharge of material after sieve Function: Monitoring of grain size after screening process or fractionation Solution Paddy is a particle sensor which is

Moisture measurement to assure material quality Optimal adjustment of the drying process in pellet production with M-Sens 2
Moisture measurement to assure material quality
Optimal adjustment of the drying process in pellet production with M-Sens 2 Application A manufacturer of wood pellets processes raw materials such as planing chips or wood chips (wood waste) to produce wood pellets. After delivery of the wood waste, it is cleaned from extraneous material like metal and stones by a separator. Afterwards the material is crushed by a hammer mill and dried. The crushed material is then transported by a conveyor belt through a 90 °C convection oven. After leaving the oven a screw conveyor transports the wood chips to a storage silo. To assure the material quality, it is desirable for the moisture of the material to be measured during its transport to the storage silo. If the moisture is not correct, the drying process should be changed automatically. Process data Customer: manufacturer of wood pellets (Germany) Material: chipped wood Transport means: screw conveyor Installation location: screw conveyor after oven Moisture: 3 - 8 % Solution After the drying process the material‘s

Dust monitoring with ProSens on clean gas side
Exhaust gas cleaning in a pneumatic conveyor system Application An international mining company extracts minerals under ground for the fabrication of fertilizers. For the long term improvement and safety of the structure stability fillings and binders (dry bulks) with defined recipes are injected locally into former mining cavities. These materials are delivered above ground, stored in silos and afterwards transported in a closed-pipe pneumatic conveying system to storage silos below ground. There the fillings and binders are mixed with a salt solution, pumped to the cavities and eventually harden. The silos used for the intermediate storage are under negative pressure for safety reasons. They are equipped with a silo vent filter (main filter) and a downstream security filter (secondary filter). This assures the air purity according to legal regulations, which is measured constantly after the security filter. When a specified limit value is reached, an alarm should be transmitted to the control room. Process

Mass flow measurement with SolidFlow 2.0 Production of montan wax
Mass flow measurement with SolidFlow 2.0
Production of montan wax Application 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. Therefore, the coal is crushed, dried and impinged with an environmentally friendly solvent to separate the wax from the coal. The acquired montan wax is transported into an evaporation system, where it evaporizes in several stages. After that it is transported via pumps to spray towers, where wax balls (wax granulates) are produced. At the outlet of the spray towers the granulate falls through a down-stream sieve into a pipe. Our customer’s aim was to determine the quantity of the obtained material continuously. Process data Costumer: Romonta, Amsdorf (Germany) Product: Montan wax, granulate Quantity: 6 t/h Installation place: Pipe after spray towers Function: Measurement in freefall after silo Solution The SolidFlow 2.0 has been specially developed for measuring solid volumes,

Continuous dust monitoring with AirSafe Avoidance of Ex areas
Continuous dust monitoring with AirSafe
Avoidance of Ex areas Application A producer of dry mortar needs dry sand and trass for the production process. Both materials are dried in a hot gas heater at a temperature of 500 °C before they are admixed. The hot gas heater uses brown coal dust as combustion material. The brown coal dust, which is stored in a silo, is transported via a rotary valve in free fall to a distribution plate. From there it is blown by an airstream into the drying furnace. The rotary valve and the distribution plate are located in the silo housing. Extreme dust formation, caused by a leakage, can cause an Ex zone in this area. Therefore the plant operator looks for a prompt possibility to detect dust formation. The plant is shut down when a safety threshold is reached, which prevents the development of an explosive atmosphere. Process data Customer: Manufacturer of construction material (Germany) Product: Brown coal dust Installation place: Silo housing Function: Prevention of Ex
