Animal feed: Level detection to protect container overfilling - Case Study
Customer: Raiffeisen Kraftfuttermittelwerk Dörpen GmbH (Germany)
Material: Animal feed
Installation: Secondary container behind scale
Function: Level detection, overfill protection
In a concentrated animal feed plant, there are four scales in which various components are filled via screw conveyors. Due to the various products, there are different bulk heights in the respective containers. If the height of the material in the containers is too high, the mechanical slider, that is located in the centre of the container, is no longer able to transport the material downstream to the process lines.
Thus, the objective is to prevent possible overfilling in order to optimize the mixing process.
