SITRANS WF solids flowmeters monitor the rate of bulk material flow in a process. They continuously measure the impact force of the material under gravity feed conditions, and convert this signal into a flow rate used to control the rate into a process or blending operation. Solids flowmeters can function in standalone measuring operations, or they can interface to a facility’s process control system using industry standard protocols.
SITRANS WF flowmeters measure any dry material from powders to granulates. Material densities range from puffed wheat to iron ore, while fluidity covers the spectrum from fluidized powder, such as fly-ash, to sluggish flowing material such as lathe turnings. Typical materials monitored include cement, gravel, coke, coal, minerals, wood chips, cereals, seeds, grains, soybean and rice hulls, unshelled peanuts, starch, sugar, potato flakes, grain tailings and screenings, and plastic pellets.
