Conveyor belt control and crusher monitoring

The coal is transported on conveyor belts, moving from the coal pile to the crushers or transfer points. Volume measurement is necessary here to control coal delivery to the mill and optimize throughput. Loading time can also be reduced by making a volumetric measurement at this point. The Bulkscan® LMS511 sensor records volume flow on belts without contact, based on the principle of laser flight time measurement. The integrated center-of-gravity calculator maximizes transport performance and detects one-sided loading or uneven belt loads. The belt running control serves to detect belt unevenness which causes higher belt wear costs.
