Solids flow meters
Solids flow meters from Monad Electronics accurately measure weight and controls flow rates of product so that quality and plant efficiency is constantly maintained. These flow meters have a totally enclosed design to eliminate product waste or contamination and reduce plant maintenance. Since the units are dust-tight, they provide a healthier work environment, especially when hazardous substances are monitored. They are specifically designed for minimum plant down-time.
Dry bulk solids material enters the flow guide producing a mechanical deflection as it strikes the flow meter’s sensing plate. It then continues on through the process unhindered, ensuring no disruption in the process or production is done. The horizontal force of this deflection is converted into an electrical signal by either a deflection sensing LVDT (Linear Variable Differential Transformer) or a force sensing strain gauge load cell.
The signal is then monitored and processed by the associated electronic integrator, which instantaneously displays the flow rate and integrated total weight. Since only the horizontal force is measured, vertical force due to material build-up in the non-impinging area has no effect. There is no zero drift and the need for frequent recalibration is eliminated.
Solids flow meters monitor dry bulk materials in sizes from powders to granules more than 25 mm (1”) in diameter. Handling flow rates from 200 kg/h to 2000 t/h. Material density varies from puffed wheat to iron ore, while fluidity ranges from fluidized powder such as flyash to sluggish flowing materials such as lathe turnings.
A solids flow-meter’s performance will be as repeatable and consistent as the flow of material it is measuring. The following arrangements are typical of pre-feed chute configurations used to ensure consistent flow patterns. Arrangements will vary depending on the upstream equipment or chute work. Applications should be reviewed by a solids flow-meter specialist to achieve best results. During initial setup, use pre-weighing or post-weighing of material samples to calibrate flow-meter and verify accuracy using the material sample weights.
