Conveyors in Construction Material Recycling Plant

Conveyors in Construction Material Recycling Plant

 

Application Description

A construction material recycling company has a series of conveyors that feed one another in a multi stage process. If one conveyor stops abruptly, the conveyor feeding it continues, and material piles up rapidly as it has nowhere to go. One by one the conveyors stop abruptly creating a domino effect all the way up the line. Down time is extensive, lengthy, and expensive because multiple conveyors need to be cleared before production can continue.

Solution:  Phares ZS09R Zero Speed Switch Sensor

Mount a Phares Magnetic Disk and a Phares ZS09R Zero Speed Switch Sensor to the load side of each conveyor. Wire the Phares ZS09R Zero Speed Switch Sensor contacts in series with the PLC “Stop” circuits. When a stoppage occurs on one conveyor, the Phares ZS09R Zero Speed Switch Sensor trips promptly, enabling the PLC “Stop” circuit on all conveyors. Down time and clean up are reduced by confining the problem to a single conveyor.

The Phares ZS09R Zero Speed Switch needs a target for sensing and measuring speed.

Suitable targets are:
