The Model SFI and SFD-2 lines of solids flow detectors from Monitor Technologies, LLC provide analog or relay outputs to indicate the flow / no-flow condition of powder and bulk solids materials in process lines. These units use microwave Doppler radar technology that makes them extremely reliable. Their rugged design withstands the rigors of the installation and process extremes. They can assist in detecting flow problems, as well as, enhance the level of automation at a facility like turning a conveyor on or off.Solids flow detectors can be used in a variety of applications including dry chemicals, pesticides, detergents, grains and more.A variety of options make these units even more versatile. For instance, stainless steel mounting adapters with a choice of process seals are available. Also, the optional saddle coupling provides a means of mounting the transceiver without welding a coupling to the process line.
From automated systems with pneumatic lines to gravity chutes and feeders, solids flow monitors can help to improve process performance.
