FlowJam

Flow / No-Flow Detection

The FlowJam detects all kinds of bulk solid flows with regard to material movement. The FlowJam distinguishes between the following switching conditions:-

  • material flow
  • material jam/standstill or empty pipe

The system works contactless by using microwaves, whereby the material movement is detected by means of the Doppler’s principle. The FlowJam can also be used under difficult conditions such as high operating temperatures and pressures with the help of a process adapter.

Features

  • Detects through material build up.
  • Simple installation.
  • Suitable for high temperature upto 1100°C and pressure upto 20 Bar.
  • Compact (no separate electronics)
  • Detects & monitors flow/no-flow conditions of bulk solids in pipelines, ducts & air sides and transfer points of chutes, conveyer belts & bucket elevators.
