BinMaster Flow Detector Improves Bulk Material Flow 

BinMaster Flow Detect 2000 improves bulk material handling by detecting plugged chutes and clogged or empty conveyors, thanks to the sensor’s use of Doppler Technology to sense flow and no-flow conditions. 

The 5-lb., compact sensor houses the sensing element, power and output connections, and user adjustment controls in a single NEMA 4X enclosure. It detects flow conditions in gravity chutes, feeders, pipelines, conveyor belts, or bucket elevators. 

“Flow Detect 2000 works in solids, granules, and fine powders,” said Rich Tavis, BinMaster instrumentation specialist. “It’s not just for plugged chutes and conveyors, we look at the blending and processing operations where cross contamination or bad batching gets expensive.”

The device is approved to North American CSA/US Class II, Division 1 Groups E, F & G as well as European Union ATEX Zone 21 hazardous locations.
