Flow Measurement and Control

Solids flow meters monitor and measure the flow rate of bulk solids, powders, and granules. Solids flow meters are used widely in industries, such as:

The solids flow meters measure and weigh solid materials as they flow through processing machinery at various manufacturing stages. There are several different measurement methods used in solids flow meters, including impact plate, measuring or deflection chute, Coriolis, and microwave technologies. Solids flow meters or monitors determine if there is a blockage in the line or verify whether materials are moving at an expected processing rate.
