Schliengen, Germany – SWR engineering‘s FlowJam detects all kinds of bulk solid flows with regard to material movement. The system works contactless by using microwaves.
The FlowJam distinguishes between the following switching conditions:
• material flow
• material jam/standstill resp. empty pipe
The FlowJam is a very reliable device because the use of microwaves guarantees a penetration of material build-up on the sensor, and therewith a proof detection of material flow behind it. Hence it‘s also possible to detect through non-metallic box walls, casings or conduits.
Even at difficult conditions like high process temperatures or pressures the FlowJam can be used by means of a process-adapter.
