Particle Speed, not Air Speed!
Pneumatic conveying plays a large role in many industrial processes across many industries. From batch mixing and manufacturing, to fuel feed rates for boilers and furnaces, pneumatic conveying controls must be set correctly or else serious complications can arise leading to loss of product, damage to equipment or even potential safety or emissions violations.
Recently, Auburn Systems has had great success integrating their triboelectric particulate monitoring solutions directly with pneumatic conveying system controls to dynamically adjust fan settings to increase/decrease air flow and velocity through the processes. This can be done by measuring actual particle speed with the TRIBO.hs 5000 particle velocity monitoring series. Let’s examine a few of these advantages.
