The radar FlowJam indicates flow of bulk materials which move through the detection range at a minimal required speed of 0.1 m/s.
The detection is executed by evaluating the Doppler effect, thus independent of the flow direction. The material flow, which can be in metallic or nonmetallic tubes, wells, free fall distances and discharge points, is indicated by a relay.
The sensor distinguishes between two conditions:
• material flow
• material jam or standstill.
FlowJam can be adapted to extreme process conditions like high process temperature by a separating flange equipped with a window especially for microwaves.
