Contactless measurement of bulk materials

For more than 65 years, Berthold Technologies has been successfully offering solutions for non-contact measurement of level, density, concentration, mass flow and moisture in containers, pipes or conveyor belts.

The mass-flow measurement can be easily implemented in all kind of conveyor systems and is the system of choice for reliable and reproducible measurements. The system is particularly suited for monitoring loading- and unloading procedures, respectively material mixing or dosing applications.

We can measure the conveying capacity as well as the mass flow (tonnage) of the conveying system. Additionally, batch processes can be monitored. Typical media include powder and granulates, boulder of various sizes, scrap, recycling paper and liquids.

While reaching a high rate of reproducibility of measurements of ± 1%, the system is free of any maintenance or need for re-calibration.

Environmental influences as wind load, vibration, shock absorption or variances in conveyor belt tension do not harm the quality of measurement.

Customer Advantages with Berthold:

  • Easy to install, no modification of current installation required
  • Contact-less measurement, free of any wear and tear
  • Reliable, maintenance free measurement with high repeatability; no re-calibration required
