Flow Measurement at low solid/air ratios

PicoFlow

Perfectly adapted for control and regulation of reagent in flue gas treatment and transport lines with very low material concentration

Electrodynamic flow sensor for measurement of low flow rates from 0 to 100 kg/h.
For pipe diameters up to 1 m.
Ideally used in leanphase conveying.
In free fall conditions with at least 2 m/s drop speed.

  • suitable for very low concentrations
  • ceramic coating preventing sensor wear
Measurement of low flow rates from 0 …. 100 kg/h
  • Particularly good in pneumatic applications for material flow rates from a few g/h up to a few hundreds kg/h (depending on application)
  • Very reliable for free-fall applications with a drop speed of at least 2 m/s (approx. 25 cm drop height)
  • In cases where dust measuring instruments cannot cope and flow rate measuring instruments are overspecified
  • The Picoflow is perfectly suited for industrial applications especially in power generation or cement plants where it can be used to regulate or control additional reagent in flue gas treatment: injection of activated carbon, minsorb, lignite coke…
  • Waste incineration
  • Steel
  • Chemistry
  • Energy
  • Cement
  • Pharma
