SOLIDS FLOW MEASUREMENT
Gravimetric solids flow measurement offers greater control and long term accuracy than alternatives such as volumetric scales and feeders, but not all gravimetric flow meters achieve the same level of accuracy and control. While both weigh belts and loss-in-weight feeders are gravimetric devices, they too are prone to error with even slight variations in particle size and density. The key to achieving the best results with a gravimetric solids measurement device is the proper presentation of material to the measurement surface in a way that maximizes measurement surface contact (for higher accuracy) and keeps the measurement surface filled (as a method of self-cleaning).
Utilizing the patented CentriFlow Technology
Eastern Instruments' solids flow measurement product line offers accurate, cost-effective and simple solutions to your process measurement needs.
|MASS FLOW METER||
Solid-Particle Mass Flow Meter measures bulk solid materials continuously in a process. With an accuracy of 0.25% full scale and repeatability of 0.1%, it handles bulk densities from 1lb/ft3 to 100 lb/ft3 and flow rates of 0.35 ft3/min to 60 ft3/min. The CentriFlow®
Meter can be used for mixing, blending, or ratio control applications in the petrochemical, agricultural, aggregate, food, and pharmaceutical industries. The CentriFlow®
Meter is unique and positioned to replace weigh belts, impact meters, loss-in-weight meters, and static weigh scales, where accuracy, low maintenance and zero drift are paramount. Solid construction, low maintenance, and a compact package allow it to be installed almost anywhere.
The CentriFeeder® line of feeders allow for both an accurate, real-time flow measurement, as well as a near perfect control of flow rate and total. For blending applications, control the flow rate of an individual ingredient, or combine several CentriFeeders for near perfect recipe control. If you are controlling ingredients entering a batching process, use the CentriFeeder for controlling the total of one or more ingredients entered into the batch. In either case, the outcome is an easily maintained and consistent flow rate that can be controlled, in some instances, over a 100:1 range.
|GRAVIMETRIC FILLERS SYSTEMS||
series of systems are designed to quickly and accurately fill virtually any box, bag, package or container with flowable, granular solids. The CentriFill™
series of weigh fillers comes in a variety of customizable designs, from our Semi-Automatic Weigh Filler that allows for manual initiation of fills, to our fully Automatic Weigh Filler which utilizes a motion sensor activated conveyor system for fully automated fills. The CentriFill™
series of weigh fillers can accurately fill a variety of containers from primary packages to bulk bags.
