Siemens expands its dry solids flowmeter product line with the Sitrans WF100, Sitrans WF200, and Sitrans WF250 strain-gauge load cell based flowmeters. These new flowmeters provide measuring for compact installations and high capacity applications. Sitrans WF100 handles flowrates of 1 to 200t/h, while the WF200 series handles flowrates of 200 to 900t/h. The WF250 is for use with air-activated gravity conveyors or air slides, typically found in cement processing. The WF250's design includes an air chamber that separates the air from the material, thereby removing the impact of air on the sensing plate and providing accurate measurement.
All of the Sitrans WF100 and WF200 series flowmeters use patented triple beam parallelogram style load cells that have proven their reliability and durability in heavy-duty belt scales, offering superior accuracy and repeatability.
All of Sitrans WF solids flowmeters are suited for monitoring solid materials in cement, mineral, plastics, and food processing industries. The flowmeters are unaffected by vertical force changes caused by material buildup, performing in situations where other weighing devices have difficulties such as in fly-ash or flour applications.

PCN Europe’s March issue features an Industry Special covering issues concerning the Environment, we look at the role heat management plays in the world’s largest CO2 test facility, in another one we discover a zero liquid discharge treatment process for waste water. Our Product Focus on Measurement Technology includes among others an application story showing how predication and performance monitoring on a oil & gas platform enables onshore personnel to monitor essential equipment. In our technical article we look at ways to eliminate mechanical issues in differential pressure systems. At this time of the year we are looking forward to the trade show season, especially at Hannover Messe, the leading industrial trade show. This edition also presents you with many other application stories and product news from all areas of the processing industries, enhanced with datasheets and videos.
