Conveyor Volume Flow Control
Production control & optimization with real time data from conveyors
Our Conveyor Volume Flow Control measures belt load, speed and misalignment with high accuracy in real time. It is used for production control, machine optimization & belt wear reduction. This precise and reliable system has many advantages over existing technology.
Easy installation and low weight to be placed nearly everywhere & allowing new kinds of control loops for your machinery
Belt volume flow measurement
For 2D surface profile measurement of the load on the belt, a robust indurad radar sensor is installed over the conveyor belt. Together with the belt speed the solution calculates the volume flow. The volume flow is directly available in cubic meters, cubic yards or other formats via a HMI or for PLC/SCADA integration
Load speed measurement
For load speed measurement, the velocity radar sensor is installed above the belt with a clear view of the material stream. The sensor captures both low and high speed, and is able to distinguish between the speed of the load and of the belt. This unique property is especially important for precise results on steep conveyors.
Belt misalignment and freeboard tracking
Two high precision radar sensors on each side of the conveyor belt measure the distance to each belt edge with millimeter precision. The real-time offset between both values allows for detecting developing misalignments in split seconds. The measured distance between the belt edge and the belt load allows continuous and reliable freeboard measurement
