Mass Flow of Bulk Solids on Conveyors

Mass flow measurements are common and necessary across many varying industries. From mines, to paper mills, to power plants, operators move material on conveyor belts and on screw and chain conveyors. Conveyors are also a popular means of loading and unloading trucks, barges, and rail cars at plants. Mass flow measurements of these bulk solids are required for two main reasons; control and material transfer.

The amount of material fed to a downstream process is regulated in control applications. Mass flow, for example, is measured and sent to an automation system, which can then change a conveyor's speed to control the amount of material being delivered to a downstream process, such as ore into a crusher at a mine or wood chips into a digester at a paper mill.
