VEGHEL - Adequate detection of bulk solids like powders, granulates and absorbing pellets is important for product quality, process efficiency and system safety in the bulk solids industry.
Bulk solids are hard to measure because of their cohesive, low dielectric, fibrous and high moisture properties. This results in reliability issues and fl ow problems. To solve these problems, Fluidwell instruments, a division of Fluidwell, launches the Triangle FSA 150, a “Field Time Control” (FTC) based sensor. With FTC technology a sensors sensitivity increases considerably, making it suitable for adequately detecting various bulk products, those even with extremely low dielectric constants. And still getting more signal with low variation for increased reliability and thus decreasing costs, increasing revenues and clearer insight in running processes. The Triangle family consists of the sensor FSA 150 and an indicating transmitter FBS 300.
Functionality of FTC (Field Time Control):
Innovative product detection technology for bulk solids A concentrated electric field is generated between the transmitting and the receiving electrode. The cycle time of the FTC sensor changes as soon as solid particles intervene this electric field.
This is how the system provides a more reliable and cost effective solution for: product selection, solid flow applications like powder and granulates, pneumatically conveyed products and product/air ratio controlled applications.
The Triangle is especially designed for diffi cult product detection applications involving bulk solids like powder or granulates. The innovative FTC technology incorporates several new features to get the best possible product/air ratio in pneumatic transport applications and free fall systems following mechanical conveying systems.
Bulk solid material: Polymer powder and super absorbent pellets
Typical applications: Waste water industry and diaper industry
Challenges in bulk solids product detection
Mr. Louis Ras, General Manager of Fluidwell Instruments, proudly explains further: “The Triangle product detection system combines the advantages of ultrasonic and radar without their disadvantages. With the help of FTC technology we really developed a product that makes a difference in the industry. Over the years we received many requests for better detection of bulk products with extremely low dielectric constants. We challenged their problems in an innovative way and the result is that these companies now find in the Triangle a perfect solution.”
