Flow Detector with Hazloc Approval
The Flow Detect 2000 prevents cross contamination by ensuring flow has stopped before introducing a new material into the flow stream. It is newly certified to North American Class II, Division 1 Groups E, F, & G and ATEX Zone 21 hazardous location standards. The FD-2000 can be used as a preventive control by food and feed manufacturers required to comply with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FMSA). This compact, single-piece sensor detects flow or no flow conditions down to a trickle of flow. It installs at transition points in:
- Gravity chutes, feeders or spouts
- Bucket elevators
- Mechanical or pneumatic conveyors
- Ducts or pipelines
The Flow Detect 2000 detects solids, granules, pellets, meals and powders and is suitable for feed, grain, milling, or ethanol operations. It prevents downtime and equipment failure caused by blockages, conveyors running empty, no material flowing to-and-from a process, or loose slide gates.
This low-cost, microwave-based sensor is packed in a NEMA 4X enclosure that houses the power & output connections, and user adjustable controls. Installation is simple, via a 1-1/4” NPT opening. It provides a single analog relay output to alert to flow or no flow status on your PLC.
