Siemens expands and rebrands its dry solids flowmeter line

12.03.2012
Siemens-Division Industry Automation expands its dry solids flowmeter product line with the new Sitrans WF100, Sitrans WF200, and Sitrans WF250 strain-gauge load cell based flowmeters.

These new flowmeters provide effective measuring for compact installations and high capacity applications. Siemens also rebrands its Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) based Milltronics flowmeters into the Sitrans WF300 series.


Sitrans WF100 handles flowrates of 1 to 200 t/h (1 to 220 STPH), while the Sitrans WF200 series handles flowrates of 200 to 900 t/h (220 to 990 STPH). Sitrans WF250 is for use with air-activated gravity conveyors or air slides, typically found in cement processing. The Sitrans WF250's unique design includes an air chamber that separates the air from the material, thereby removing the impact of air on the sensing plate and providing accurate measurement. All of the Sitrans WF100 and Sitrans WF200 series flowmeters use patented triple beam parallelogram style load cells that have proven their reliability and durability for over 25 years in Siemens heavy-duty belt scales, offering superior accuracy and repeatability.

Siemens also rebrands its Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) based Milltronics flowmeters into the Sitrans WF300 series. Milltronics E-40/V-40, Milltronics E-300/v-300, and Milltronics A-40/A-300 flowmeters have been respectively rebranded to Sitrans WF330 standard-duty flowmeter, Sitrans WF340 compact flowmeter for constricted spaces, and Sitrans WF350 unique flowmeter for aerated materials. Sitrans WF300 series flowmeters have capacities of up to 300 t/h (330 STPH), and have CSA and FM approvals.

Sitrans WF300 series flowmeters use Sitrans WFS300 and 320 LVDT based sensing heads. The sensing element of these flowmeters is mounted outside the process, which protects it from exposure to harsh environments. Frictionless pivots exclude the vertical force of the measured material, and a viscous fluid damper provides mechanical damping in the event of pulsating flows.

All of Siemens Sitrans WF solids flowmeters are ideal for monitoring solid materials in cement, mineral, plastics, and food processing industries. Siemens flowmeters are unaffected by vertical force changes caused by material buildup, performing in situations where other weighing devices have difficulties such as in fly-ash or flour applications.

Im Focus: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
