FSA 150 with in-line flow fitting
Innovative flow rate system for accurate measurement of free flow powders, pellets & granular bulk solids, even in pneumatic conveying or ‘free fall’ applications

Example Applications:
• Alert to step change, material jam or flow/no-flow detection eg: strainer breakage in flour milling
• Back up for screw feeders especially in critical weighing applications eg: polymer powder dosing in wastewater treatment; flow control of super absorbent pellets in the nappy industry
• Control of powder blends and mixes eg: accurate powder mixture in fibreglass production

The Triangle system, using innovative field time control technology, is specifically designed to give high accuracy flow rate measurement of free flow and granular bulk solids.   It employs innovative ‘Field Time Control’ technology where a concentrated electric field is generated between the sensor’s transmitting and the receiving electrodes.  The reaction time of the sensor increases as soon as the solid particles interfere with the electric field and the sensor signal output corresponds to the flow rate of the bulk material.
 
Field Time Control technology incorporates several features designed to obtain optimum results for pneumatically conveyed materials with variable product/air ratio or products in free fall after mechanical conveying.  In particular, its ability to detect weak signals coming from low dielectric products allows high accuracy measurement in such applications compared to other flow rate instrumentation.
 
The Triangle system has a reliable and robust design for industrial applications and harsh environments. The rigid stainless steel sensor includes a ceramic isolator for abrasive materials.  The ATEX approved transmitter includes multiple display functions (instantaneous flow rate, total, accumulated total, analogue output and frequency counts) and is offered with various types of enclosure including a rugged aluminium field mount enclosure with IP67 rating.  Overall, the Triangle system is easy to install, has no moving parts and requires minimal maintenance, providing a reliable and cost effective solution for solid flow applications.
