With the following products our customer has solved this measurement task optimally:
Capanivo in a mixture of milled grain
The animal feed producer needs to control a hopper which supply the mixing systems with milled materials (corn, soya, rice, wheat, meat meal and husks). False alarms were quite frequent due to the material accumulated on the sensors. Also, it was a very dynamic process with silo supply many times a day, required a sensor that was reliable and fast response to increase the performance.
Our best solution for this case was the Capanivo serie 4000 capacitive sensor, with 155mm PPS probe. The active shield technology could avoid the false alarm due build up of the material and together with the response time of 0,5 seconds of the 100% electronic sensor, were a perfect combination, therefore able to keep the performance and reliabilityof the process in a higher level.
