Access from EThOS:
The transport of particulate in a gas flow or pneumatic conveying system is widespread in many areas of industry, for example chemical, food processing, cement industries and transportation of pulverised coal in coal-fired power plants. However, a simple and reliable method for monitoring the flow parameters, particularly the mass flow rate, velocity and size of particulate solids in the pipeline, has yet to be developed. This is mainly due to the fact that numerous problems, including insufficient signal generation, particle deposition in sensing vicinity, inhomogeneous particle and velocity profile, can be encountered by flow meters which may affect their readings.
