Two-Piece Flow Detector

Model: Flow Detect 1000

The BinMaster Flow Detect 1000 flow/no flow sensor consists of two components – the remote sensor probe which is mounted in a pneumatic pipeline, gravity chute or feeder – and the control console which is mounted in an area accessible for users to read the console during operations. The system promotes continuous and efficient operations by informing users that solid or powder materials are flowing and alerts them if the flow status has changed, power has been lost, or if communication between the remote sensor probe and the control console has been interrupted.

  • Senses flow or no-flow conditions of solids and powders in pneumatic pipelines, gravity chutes, and feeders
  • Virtually unaffected by humidity, ambient light, pressure, vacuum, temperature, noise, vibration, electrical signals, non-metallic buildup, or dust
  • Used in food processing, plastics, grain, cement, aggregates, paper, mining, and many other materials
  • Consists of two components including remote sensor and control console
  • Uses Doppler technology (microwave) to provide reliable motion detection
  • Non-intrusive flush mounting senses through non-metallic surfaces
  • Non-contact operation eliminates flow stream interruption and equipment wear
  • Control settings can be made without accessing the remote sensor probe
  • Fail-safe power protection and loop fault monitor
  • “Quick-Set” selectable, single turn calibration
  • Hazloc approval Class II
  • Alarm for flow/no flow status
  • High/low selectable sensitivity adjustment
