Radar solution for precise bulk dosing through height measurement on the conveyor.
In the dynamic batch dosing of additives for the production of fertilizer, food or cement, the exact mixing ratio is crucial to achieve optimum product quality. However, conventional measurement techniques – such as gravimetric measurement – are often too inaccurate to determine the flow rate of granulate, powder or other bulk material. Our radar solution enables a high-precision determination of bulk solid dosing: The radar sensors are able to measure the height of the bulk material (fertilizer, seeds, feed, sand, gravel, or plastic granulate) on the conveyor belt with sub-millimeter accuracy.
The radar measurement is independent of dust, vibration as well as the flow properties of the bulk solid. In addition, our radar sensors require very little maintenance and are extremely robust (ingress protection IP67). Tedious, constant calibrations or the wrong dosages due to incorrect operation are therefore a thing of the past. Benefit from our radar solution for the precise batch dosing of bulk solids on the conveyor belt through high-precision height measurement.
