Monitoring of the volume flow on the conveyor belt

Belts transport excavation materials to the crusher. During this process, volumes must be measured and an appropriate delivery rate maintained in order to control the delivery of ore and carbon to the pulverizer and optimize throughput. The Bulkscan® LMS511 laser volume flowmeter provides non-contact detection of the volume flow on conveyor belts. The built-in center of gravity calculator maximizes transportation performance and detects one-sided or uneven loading of the belt. The belt is monitored so that unevenness can be detected in good time, thereby reducing downtimes and cutting belt wear costs.
