Block Chute Detection
Blocked chutes are a huge problem, especially on large sites, where a great deal of damage can be caused quickly if heavy material blocks up in a conveyor. Read how Pulsar's blackbox units are being used to great effect to protect against this type of situation.
Quarrying is only one of many industries where the detection of blocked feed chutes is important, but the sheer size of most stone quarries and the remoteness of many conveyors means that their monitoring becomes critical.
Contacting solutions such as flap switches are prone to wear and require regular maintenance and frequent replacement.
Pulsar’s blackbox 130 controller with dB3 transducer provide a low cost, non-contacting, zero maintenance ultrasonic solution to the problem. If a chute blocks, an alarm is generated to warn the plant operators of a potential blockage.
