Application

The transport of coarse and fine bulk solids within a stone processing facility takes place in most cases via conveyor belts. To achieve an even throughput and compensate for volume fluctuations during transport, belt transfer points are integrated in the conveyor line. The incoming bulk material is briefly stored in a buffer silo to prevent belt overfilling. This is the point where the level and the point level must be monitored.
