Blocked chute detection in a Mining process application is crucial to the operational performance of the site. Hours lost to downtime caused by a blockage in a conveyor transfer chute can take hours to clear which in dollar terms can mean thousands of dollars in lost production and a
Early Detection Blockages always cause production losses and can often be dangerous to people and equipment. Early detection is therefore essential. Process Automation offers non-invasive blocked chute detection using either Gamma or Microwave technologies.
An ore chute may be defined as “an inclined passage, from 3 to 4 ft (approx. 1 m) square, for the transfer of ore to a lower level, car, conveyor, etc. It may be constructed through waste fills.” 1 Blocked Chute Detectors also known as plugged chute detectors are the devices which are basically employed to identify material blockages in process ore chutes.
The Hycontrol MWS microwave blocked chute detection system provides a simple non-contact, non-intrusive option suitable for many applications on dry powder or granular product.. An installation comprises a transmitter and a receiver which are mounted facing one another at distances up to a maximum of 100 m apart (for the AC version).During operation the transmitter emits a continuous, low
Drexelbrook's Blocked chute switch is the ideal choice for hard wearing product or where users want a no fuss, long lasting instrument for the reliable detection of blocked chutes or point level in chutes and hoppers without the disruption of coatings. Blocked chute sensors are also available in curved shapes to perfectly fit round chutes.
In addition to the contacting type devices there are also the nuclear- or microwave-based detection systems, which have no intrusion into the chute. But now there is a new member of the detection family that falls somewhere in between. Acoustic switches require an opening into the chute, but don’t protrude into the flow stream.
Self-Cleaning Gladiator Acoustic Switch Series for Blocked Chute Detection and Anti-collision for Heavy Machinery. The Gladiator Acoustic Switch uses acoustic wave technology in a new Sender/Receiver form for blocked chute detection, point level detection and anti-collision for heavy machinery. The Gladiator Amplifier powers two AW Transducers
High-temperature Microsense blocked chute detection systems supplied by Hycontrol (UK) are playing a crucial role at a large UK biomass power station, which is fuelled by poultry litter. The installation of the microwave-based systems followed successful trials on one of the six chutes feeding the poultry litter biomass into the main furnace.
The Acoustic Switch is designed for continuous operation in dusty, wet environments where other technologies fail. The power of each pulse (pressure wave) blows the water, moisture and build-up off the face of the diaphragm. Typical Uses . Blocked chute detection in wet or dry environments ; Wet screen blocked chute detection
Hawk Measurement Systems (HAWK), a global leader in measurement solutions, has announced the debut of the new OptioLaser distance/level sensor. The OptioLaser S200 can be used for blocked chute detection, barrier detection, machine detection, stock pile monitoring, and point level measurement.
When a chute becomes plugged, it provides an audible or visual alert when attached to a horn, siren, light, or alarm panel. The plugged chute detector is intended for process temperatures ranging from -30°F to 270°F and material bulk densities from 15 to 90 lb./cu. ft.
Should the Cyclone Blockage Detection System ® indicate a blockage or bridge in the cyclone also, this too would need to be cleared prior to restarting the process, thereby avoiding a compounding of the problem. The Cyclone Blockage Detection System ® provides:-Early warning of an impending blockage.

Enhanced Technology for Blocked Chute Detection. Apr 30, In addition to the “contacting type devices” there are also the nuclear- or microwave-based detection systems, which have no entry into the chute. But now there is a new member of the detection family that falls somewhere in between. It needs an opening into the chute, but doesn
Jan 17, 2017· Hi all, I work in a large iron ore export terminal. The system is rather complex and includes a number of car dumpers, ship loaders, reclaimers and stackers. We also have a large number of transfer chutes on site and each one is equipped with a blocked chute door switch. These chute doors are operated on the proximity switch principal.
