Material flow monitoring for truck unloading efficiency - Case Study
- Customer: Manufacturer of detergents (Chemical industry)
- Material: Sodium sulfate
- Installation: Input pipe, connected to the truck
- Function: Monitoring the material flow to control the truck unload
Various raw materials are required in the soap manufacturing process. Sodium sulfate, one of the raw materials used in the formulation of soap, is often delivered in trucks. During the unloading of trucks, it is useful to know when the truck is empty so the pump for unloading can be switched off.
In order to automatically control the pump during the truck unloading, the customer was looking for a non-contact material flow monitoring system.
