Monitor Technologies' QuantiMass(TM) solids flow sensor measures the flow of quantities in pneumatic conveying & free-falling processes. It is based on the latest microwave technology to provide fast, accurate and reproducible in-line measuring without the use of weight scales. The sturdy, non-intrusive sensor design minimizes maintenance. The compact size of the sensor makes for easy installation into existing processes. Totalizer feature can provide a sum of the mass flow for a period of time. Suitable for grain, feed, dry ingredients, cement, sand, powders, dust, pellets, granular up to 0.75 inch (2cm) and more. Available with a DIN-rail transmitter or a controller to provide local output.
The Model SFD-2 and SFI solids flow detectors provide analog or relay outputs to indicate the flow / no-flow condition of powder and bulk solids materials in chutes, feeders and pneumatic conveying lines. These units use microwave Doppler radar technology that makes them extremely reliable. They can assist in detecting flow problems, as well as, enhance the level of automation at a facility, like turning a conveyor on or off.
