Conveyor belt control and shredder monitoring in organic waste incineration

Conveyor belts transport biomass from the waste heap to shredders or transfer stations. During this process, volume measurement systems control the rate at which biomass is fed to the shredders, optimize throughput, and reduce loading time. Using laser “time of flight” technology, the Bulkscan® records the volume flow on conveyor belts with no contact required. The Bulkscan® is particularly rugged, reliable, and wear-free. The built-in center of gravity calculator maximizes transportation performance and detects one-sided or unequal loading of the conveyor belt. The advantages: reduced belt wear and lower maintenance costs.
