Material Type Monitor

Automatic identification of type of material on conveyor belts

  • The falling of materials at takeover points of two conveyor belts causes characteristic sounds
  • Analysis of the sounds enables online determination of type of actual transported material (e.g. nut coke, sinter, lime, quartz, ore, pellets,...)
  • Early detection of wrong assignment of materials
  • Recognition if materials are contaminated by other materials
  • Prevention of wrong material charging
