First tests were made in comparison with an approved truck scales.
After the first calibration the weighing results had been matching precisely – no further adjustment had been required.
After conveying the whole harvest of 2017 (approximately 370 t) there was only a minor deviation of 400 kg compared to the weighing results of the mills.
“We are really happy with this type of scale – the system is operating properly without any problems, explains Mr Niggemann, Chief Engineer. Even the display of the actual flow rate (t/h) has supported us to find a few weak points in our new plant. For example the automatic shutdown of the plant was depending on the current consumption of the elevator. We have modified this part that way, that the plant stops if the FlowSlide goes to zero tons/h. This works perfect. The FlowSlide system was not a cheap solution to solve our demand – but the scale is every cent worth and the smooth operation is fun, continues Mr Niggemann.”
About the FlowSlide from Hense Wägetechnik GmbH
Inside the FlowSlide meter the product is running over a special curved slide. The product is generating a centripetal force directly proportional to the flow rate. Due to the special force transmission into the load cell, the measurement is almost unaffected by product density, grain size and friction. The FlowSlide system can be pre calibrated at factory.
- flow measurement of free flowing solids from 10 – 80 m³ per hour
- measurement nearly unaffected by grain size and bulk density
- excellent repeatability and accuracy
- factory pre calibration possible
- very low maintenance
- Wear protection for heavy abrasive materials: Hardox
- Profibus interface
- MOD-Bus interface
- counting impulses / 4-20mA analogue output
- lower or higher flow rate with Baby-FlowSlide or Maxi-FlowSlide
