The CentriFlow BWS gravimetric in-line mass flow meter

The CentriFlow BWS is an accurate gravimetric in-line mass flow meter that positions itself as an alternative to impact flow meters and belt scales, for the dynamic measurement of solids while in process. The BWS is idea for measuring granular solids such as grains, pellets, beans, wood chips, or even pet food, as well as free-flowing granular powders, such as sand. With an accuracy of better than +/- 2% on most flowable, granular products, the BWS is more accurate than many alternative technologies. The accuracy of the CentriFlow BWS stems from the patented CentriFlow technology that is based on the principle of centripetal force. As product slides through the BWS flow meter, it is forced around a curved measurement pan which exerts a centripetal force on the curved surface. The meter accurately measures the deflection of the measurement pan as this centripetal force is exerted. Rather than impacting the measurement pan, product actually slides around the curved surface, which reduces product breakage and results in a more accurate signal.
