Monitoring conveyor belt operation during material handling

Conveyor belts transport raw material deliveries to interim storage facilities and then take steel products and slag to storage areas and to the dispatch points. A conveyor belt malfunction can cause significant delays in production and involve major costs. It is therefore necessary to monitor the operation of all conveyor belts, as well as the proper loading, unloading, and positioning of products. The Bulkscan® LMS511 laser volume flowmeter performs these tasks in combination with a DFS60 incremental encoder, which provides the speed information.
