SICK Bulkscan – Maximizing conveyor throughput
Zero contact, zero wear: The smart solution for conveyor belts
Bulkscan® LMS 511 laser volume flowmeter uses time-of-flight technology for non-contact measurement of volume flow on conveyor belts. Using the multi-echo technology, the Bulkscan LMS511 can combine time-of-flight data with the belt speed to generate a reliable volume flow signal, regardless of the bulk material’s properties or weather conditions.
Aside from calculating total quantities and mass flow, the Bulkscan® LMS511 can monitor the operation of the conveyor belt without coming into physical contact with it and promptly gives warning of any belt slippage. The integrated center-of-gravity calculator can be used to detect uneven loading of the bulk material and avoid excessive belt wear.
