New Sensor Detects All Types of Solid Streams Moving Through Detection Area

Press Release Summary:

  • Can be used for all pipelines with outside diameters between 4 and 25 mm
  • Material flow can also be observed for uniform distribution
  • Used for pipelines made of electrically non-conductive material, such as plastic or rubber

ENVEA Launches Its New Sensor for Flow Monitoring in Thin Pipelines

ENVEA presents the FlowJam T, the new sensor for powder flow monitoring in flexible pipelines.

Due to its small size, it can be easily mounted around thin hose lines. It can be used for all pipelines made of electrically non-conductive material, such as plastic or rubber, with outside diameters between 4 and 25 mm.

The FlowJam T detects all types of solid streams that move through the detection area. Detection is achieved, regardless of the direction of movement, by the triboelectric discharges of the particles. The material movement in non-metallic pipelines is displayed as a trend at the analog output and as a switching state at the relay.

Via the trend output, whether more or less material is conveyed through the tube, for example, can be displayed. The material flow can also be observed for uniform distribution. In addition, the relay contact output provides additional Flow/No Flow information.

The FlowJam T is a compact device and is connected via an 8-pin plug. If external evaluation is required, an evaluation unit can be installed later. For parameterisation of the sensor, a Modbus-USB converter and software can be provided.
