Volume and mass flow measurement during material handling

Many bulk or lump materials used in the steel producing process are transported to various parts of the mill via belts. Before being used in the production process, most of those bulk materials are weighed. However, it is often important to know both the volume and the mass flow of the material before loading it into trucks, ships or other vessels to prevent overfilling and to determine the actual amount used for accurate billing purposes. If the density (specific and/or bulk) is required, then 2D laser scanners, in addition to a weighing system, can deliver exact volume flow and the material density.
