Conveyor belt operation during material handling

Conveyor belts convey materials throughout a steel plant. From the unloading supply deliveries to filling intermediate bunkers. From transporting slag to the eventual shipping of finished goods. A conveyor belt malfunction can cause significant delays in production and involve major costs. It is therefore necessary to control the operation of conveyors, as well as proper loading, unloading and positioning of goods. Such tasks require the reliability of a flow meter system Bulkscan® LMS511 complete with a rotary encoder. Zero contact, zero wear: a smart solution for conveyors.
