Berthold Technologies has launched its new DuoSeries LB 472 radiometric bulk flow system, designed to precisely determine flow rate and mass flow in the bulk industry. The non-contacting belt scale can be installed on standard belt conveyors, as well as on conveying systems where conventional mechanical weigh cell technology cannot be applied, such as drag chain conveyors, bucket elevators, or screw conveyors.

The new The new DuoSeries LB 472 provides a very stable measurement with repeatability of ±1% over years of operation. Thus, frequent recalibrations are not required. The system doesn’t contain any moving parts and is therefore not impaired by encrustations or dirt resulting in a maintenance-free operation.

The transmitter provides current flow rate, total solid mass and batch volume.

Applications of Berthold belt scales are found in all different bulk handling industries from mining to the building materials industry, from chemical plants and power plants to the pulp & paper industry. Customers benefit from improved control in mixing processes, compliance to delivery contracts and optimal utilisation of loading capacities.
