The FlowJam detects all kinds of bulk solid flow with regard to material movement. The FlowJam distinguishes between the following switching conditions:
- material flow
- material jam / standstill resulting in an empty pipe
The system works contactless by using microwaves, whereby the material movement is detected by means of Doppler's principle.
The FlowJam is definitely a very reliable device because the use of its microwaves guarantees a penetration of material build-up on the sensor, with a proof detection of material flow behind it. Hence it is possible to detect through non-metallic box walls, casings or conduits.
Even at difficult conditions like high process temperatures, pressure or dust EX-zones the FlowJam can be used by means of a process adapter.
