Schliengen, Germany – The Paddy sensor, a particle sensor developed by envea™ – SWR engineering for on-line monitoring of coarse grain in the flow, can be used in all processes where solids are ground and screened. At the end of these processes at least two fractions are always produced, the fine material and the coarse grain. If a screen break occurs, up to now this has led to the production of large quantities of rejects or an increased workload due to renewed screening. The Paddy sensor is installed in the outlet of the material flow fraction and detects reliably if a screen break occurs.
