Contactless flow measurement in building materials industryElimination of material build ups and pollution Application
A manufacturer of building materials producing drywall products.
The production process uses clay, which is fed by a screw conveyor from a silo onto a conveyor belt. Between the two conveying devices the material quantity requires to be measured. This was performed by an Impact Flowmeter.
Using the Impact Flowmeter the clay caused contamination and material
build up. Our client contacted SWR to offer a solution to eliminate the
current problems and also being able to increase the throughput.
The system had to be able to be maintenance free over a long period.
