Radiation Mass Flow Meter (VEGA)
In radiometric measurement, an isotope emits focussed gamma rays. The sensor on the opposite side of the conveyor belt receives the radiation.
The scintillator of the sensor converts the gamma radiation into signals, whose quantity is detected and evaluated. Because gamma rays are attenuated when penetrating matter, the detector can calculate the mass flow on the basis of the change in intensity.
- Wear and maintenance free due to non-contact measurement
- Accurate determination of the flow rate of solids, very simple setup and commissioning
- Easy installation of the measuring frame on the conveyor belt
