The PosiFlow™ Feed Verification Sensor from Walchem is designed to monitor the operation of the company's EH and EZ Series pumps. The sensor detects the flow of liquid output by the pump, which verifies the metering pump is moving liquid and has not lost prime. The sensor has no moving parts. The standard flow path of the pump is preserved so the liquid does not go through gears or move a magnet to actuate a pulse in the sensor.

Bin activator

The Metalfab bin activator is a device that is driven by a vibrator with eccentric weights, that mounts to new or existing hoppers by a series of solid steel hanger arms with rubber isolators. Internally there are two cone shape baffles, one a primary and larger baffle, the other a secondary and smaller one. When the unit is vibrated, the primary baffle transmits vibrations into the product in the bin inducing the particles to respond to gravity. As the material approaches the outlet, compaction commonly takes place and this is when the secondary baffle influences the material and allows it to flow freely from the bin.
