Capsule sensor of physical and optical bulk material parameters
Summary:
A Czech university developed a capsule sensor. This capsule sensor of physical and optical bulk material parameters is a device that identifies and senses the properties of bulk materials. The university is offering a licence or manufacturing agreement to the commercial partners, who would use the device in their own business activities.
Description:
A Czech university developed a device which is designed to measure the parameters, such as material flow rates, temperature and pressure within the bulk material (it also senses the capsule orientation), when immersed in the bulk materials, and to identify or sense the bulk material behaviour "in vitro" in various conveyors, handling and storage systems not only during the bulk material movement. All sensors are placed inside the capsule sensor body, including the power source and data storage unit for saving continuous records during sensing. This technology can be used in many different industries such as mining and quarrying, food and cosmetic industries, dyeing, pharmacy, etc. The biggest benefit of the capsule sensor lies in the ability to identify local increases in pressure and flow problems within bulk materials. Another benefit consists in sensing various parameters of bulk materials, enabling a comprehensive approach to solving flow problems or changes in quality parameters during storage and technological processes related to bulk materials. The capsule sensor is a ball-shaped device containing several basic elements - pressure sensors, temperature sensor, 3G sensors in three axes, and optical device for sensing optical characteristics of bulk materials. This set of elements is controlled by a motherboard with a chip and power source. The power source is designed for 24-hour cycle measurements. The capsule is also equipped with a storage area for storing digital data from each measurement. The capsule itself is made of duralumin for standard environments and certified plastics for use in the food and pharmaceutical industries. The capsule is waterproof and stressed components can be easily replaced - especially the cover of the optical sensor.
The capsule sensor is designed for abrasive bulk materials with particles sized up to 2mm and mean bulk density. Diameter of the capsule sensor body is 250mm; in this configuration, the capsule sensor contains equipment for measuring temperature from -5°C to 40°C and bulk material pressures up to 25kPa whereas the capsule acceleration is indicated up to ±3g.
The university is offering a licence or manufacturing agreement to the commercial partners, who would use the device in their own business activities.
Advantages and Innovations:
In the development of measuring instruments for detecting strain conditions of bulk materials in vitro, are currently used sensing of strain conditions in bulk materials on the basis of image information from the deformation of the respective structure. The values of these results are proportionate to the level of strain conditions but do not provide a clear and comprehensive overview of the actual magnitude of real pressures; a late detection then may result in a collapse of the entire structure of the given storage bin. The above problems can be removed by using the capsule sensor of physical and optical bulk material parameters which can sense not only the strain conditions in bulk materials but also various physical bulk material parameters (temperature, speed and acceleration of bulk materials, particle size and shape) inside the storage or technological unit.
