Mass flow measurement on conveyor belts

Process data

Measuring task:
Throughput measurement
Measuring point:
Conveyor belt
Measuring range up to:
10,000 t/h
Medium:
Bulk solids
Process temperature:
-40 … +60 °C
Process pressure:
0 … 0 bar

Vibrations, dirt, changing material size

Application

Bulk aggregates are fed into production processes via conveyor belts or screw conveyors. For effective feed control to and from these processes, or inter-production unit billing, the mass flow of the conveyed bulk material must be measured. A reliable belt-weighing scale system and mass flow rate ensures accurate measurement and smooth operation of the plant.

Your benefit

Reliable
Reliable measurement despite changing belt tension and vibrations
Cost effective
Optimal mass flow measurement allows exact accounting of bulk solids
User friendly
Maintenance-free operation


Case study

Lime and limestone products are used in many areas of industry. Lime is known mainly as a key additive in steel production. However, lime and limestone products are also indispensable in drinking water treatment, in clarification plants, in agriculture, in the construction industry and in flue gas cleaning.
