Loadscan Overbelt Conveyor Volume Scanner provides hassle-free Reporting

Hamilton, New Zealand – The Loadscan Conveyor Volume Scanner (CVS) is an above-belt lidar laser measurement system suited for production management as it provides unambiguous data, including 3D profiling, in real-time or period reporting. The Loadscan belt scanner gives users a clear understanding of inventory production rates (or contract crushing quantities) in volume and tonnes.  Continue reading Loadscan Overbelt Conveyor Volume Scanner provides hassle-free Reporting

Sick extends LMS Bulkscan non-Contact Belt Measurement to more Users

Waldkirch, Germany – SICK has extended its LMS Bulkscan laser scanner offering, so that more users can benefit from non-contact, continuous measurement of volume and mass throughput of bulk materials on conveyor belts. The SICK LMS111 Bulkscan provides highly-accurate, delay-free volume and mass flow measurements to maximise throughput of a wide range of bulk materials including waste, crops, fertilisers, building materials and food ingredients.

SWR Engineering: Exhaust Gas Cleaning in Waste Incineration – Mass Flow Measurement with SolidFlow 2.0

A waste incineration plant produces exhaust air during the incineration process. These exhaust gases have to be cleaned. Therefore hearth furnace coke (HFC) is transported by a screw conveyor from a silo to an injector, where it is injected pneumatically into a catalyst. Between the screw conveyor and the injector the amount of the supplied HFC is measured in freefall using the  SolidFlow 2.0 mass flow measurement solution by SWR Engineering.

SWR Engineering: Continuous measurement of large mass flows without old-fashioned, mechanical techniques

Baffle plates for continuous measurement of bulk flow rates are used in many plants, where solids are handled in the processes. This mechanical technique offers many advantages compared to partial weighing of bulk solids because no more material has to be taken out of the process. Nevertheless, baffle plates entail some disadvantages, especially during the installation. Those disadvantages are eliminated with the MaxxFlow HTC by SWR Engineering as a system for the solid flow metering.
