BRILON – A customer required a precise solid flow meter to dose soybeans into a mixing process. Due to the fact, that the grain size and the bulk density of soybeans could be very different, it was important to select a Solid Flow Meter, that allows precise measurement independent from bulk density, moisture content and grain size. The average flow rate is arround 8 t/h.
The customer decides to make a test with the FlowSlide Meter FS25 from Hense Wägetechnik. This system is maintenance free and guarantees a high weighing accuracy; even is the product parameter are not constant. To reduce the investment for for five systems, the FlowSlide was mounted on a kind of rail system. The operator „drives“ the FlowSlide system to the actual batching point under a screw conveyor (see picture). The electronic unit and the compressor for the self cleaning device is also mounted on the moveable basic frame.
After a test period of 2 month the customer bought the FlowSlide system. The batching accurracy at the five positions was within the desired range. The FlowSlide system was maintenance free and simple to use.
