International Milling Directory member BinMaster is launching a new product for the grain and feed storage sectors. The new Flow Detect 2000 from BinMaster is a single-piece, non- intrusive solution for reliably detecting flow and no flow conditions. The Doppler sensor, power & output connections, and user adjustable controls are packed into in a NEMA 4x enclosure. This new low-cost, microwave-based sensor can be used in gravity chutes, feeders, pipelines, or bucket elevators. It prevents downtime and equipment failure caused by blockages, conveyors running empty, no material flowing to-and-from a process, or loose slide gates.
In silo discharge of grains or feed, it detects no-flow conditions due to bridging or rat holing. Monitoring the correct functioning of gates and valves to reduce material loss or accidental use of incorrect material.
The new Flow Detect 2000
Installation is simple, via a 1-/14? NPT opening. It provides a single analog relay output to alert to flow or no flow status on your PLC.
It detects solids, granules, pellets, meals and powders and is suitable for feed, grain, milling, or ethanol operations. It can prevent cross contamination of ingredients by ensuring flow has stopped before a new material is introduced into the flow stream.
If you’re interested, please contact Todd Peterson, Vice President of Sales at BinMaster, if you have an application that you would like to discuss for the new flow/no flow sensor.
Darren Parris from the team here at Perendale headed to the IAOM annual conference recently . Between 19th and 23rd May, the worldwide community of millers, grain and feed professionals, manufacturers and service providers met in Omaha, Nebraska, USA for some truly great events, products and conferences. The International Milling Directory was there in force and three pictures highlight the role that hundreds of copies of the directory were distributed at the event.
We always enjoy the direct contact and place in the centre of the milling world, and look forward to next year’s event with the latest edition. If you wish to register or update your company in the directory, just head to www.internationalmilling.com and start your membership in our great international resource.
