Material Flow Switch Suppliers
A material flow switch is an industrial sensor and control device used to monitor and control the flow of bulk materials, such as powders, granules, solids, and bulk solids, in various processing and conveying systems. These switches are designed to detect and respond to the presence or absence of material flow, helping to prevent equipment blockages, protect downstream processes, and ensure the efficient and safe movement of materials. Material flow switches are commonly used in industries like agriculture, food processing, mining, chemical manufacturing, and more.
The switch consists of a paddle and counter weight assembly and switch assembly. Material on conveyor and switch remains in operated position lifts the paddle. When the flow stops the paddle is allowed to pivot and actuates the switch.
