    External Powder Flow Sensor

ENVEA’s new FlowJam T is a sensor for powder flow monitoring in flexible pipelines. Due to its small size, it can be easily mounted around thin hose lines. It can be used for all pipelines made of electrically non-conductive material, such as plastic or rubber, with outside diameters between 4 and 25 mm.

Analogue trend output

The FlowJam T detects all types of solid streams that moves through the detection area. Detection is achieved, regardless of the direction of movement, by the triboelectric discharges of the particles. The material movement in non-metalic pipelines is displayed as a trend at the analogue output and as a switching state at the relay. Via the trend output, whether more or less material is conveyed through the tube, for example, can be displayed. The material flow can also be observed for uniform distribution. In addition, the relay contact output provides additional Flow/NoFlow information.

The FlowJam T is a compact device and is connected via an 8-pin plug. For parameterisation of the sensor, a Modbus-USB converter and software can be provided.
