Managing the Load in Sugar Cane Processing Equipment
Sugar cane processing plants in Brazil use the TorqueTrak Revolution instrument to continuously monitor the true mechanical torque on the conveyor drive shaft. The drive shaft torque is directly proportional to the material load on the belt. Use this “belt load” signal from the TorqueTrak Revolution instrument as feedback to the drive and feed systems. Low torque indicates low load and calls for an increase in material feed to the belt. High torque indicates high load and calls for a decrease in material feed. Very high torque may indicate a material jam or some other problem with the equipment. Set the high torque alarm function to stop the conveyor equipment before any damage can occur.
- Maintain a balanced material load
- Prevent material jams
- Prevent broken conveyor equipment
- Extend the life of the conveyor equipment
