Investigations into controlling the solids distribution between two 40 mm diameter pneumatic conveyors fed from a 63 mm diameter conveyor were presented. The mass flow rate was measured using non-restrictive ABB PfMaster meters providing the input to an ABB Commander 355 Advanced Process Controller. The project confirmed that the use of mass flowmeters combined with actual flow restrictors can offer a solution to solids flow control.
