Auburn Systems’ triboelectric flow monitors can help prevent overflow of combustible dust and other hazardous materials in the workplace. Available in Canada through Firing Industries, these critical devices operate as a backup to more conventional pneumatic conveying systems, helping to prevent dangerous and costly disruptions.
When indicators fail
Fill-level indicators alert users to excess dust in the atmosphere in manufacturing facilities, but they are not infallible. Failure of such an indicator could be catastrophic; it could lead to disruptions, blockages or overflow. So Auburn’s triboelectric flow monitor should be there to take over in such a case.
Auburn’s monitors measure airborne material with electrically isolated metal probes that are inserted into ducts or pipes. A pico amp signal generated by the material indicates how much material has passed through and transmits that information into Flow/No Flow reading or a More/Less Flow reading. This way, the user knows whether the flow rate has decreased or stopped, which could be an indication of a blockage from an overflowing bin, for example.
Users can also configure the monitor for different periods of material flow, which would enable technicians to catch a problem and fix it before it becomes worse.
Installing a triboelectric flow monitor from Auburn can help prevent problems, or call attention to them before they turn into emergencies. This is a good way to make an industrial facility a safer and smoother operation.
