Tobacco Mass flow measurement in pneumatic feed pipe at a Tobacco Company

Branch: Tobacco industry cigarette machines tobacco feeders


Application description:
For an efficient cigarette machine operation the flow monitoring of blended tobacco feeding is an important task for the process control.
Only with continuous measurement it is possible to calculate the tobacco material massflow and compare it for example with the cigarette output.
With the  D3000 flow meter it is possible to have an exact and continuous measurement of blended tobacco of the feeding pipe to the cigarette machine.

The measurement values are captured and evaluated in real time and can forwarded to other systems such as visualization and recording.

Benefits by the measurement:

  • Exact and continuous measurement of tobacco  flow
  • Visualization, recording and balancing of tobacco flow
  • Optimization production process
  • Contactless on-line measurement of mass flow without moving parts
  • (The same applies to other measurement applications in all dusts like coal dust, wood dust, rape straw dust, grain dust).
  • The multinational company prepares tobacco and produces cigarettes in a European plant. To monitor and optimize the production process the tobacco material flow is measured at the cigarette machine feeder. For this purpose the flow measurement system D3000 is installed at the feeder pipe of the cigarette machine. The sensor is flush mounted to inner wall pipe and captures the material flow without contact. Thus the material flow in the pipe will not be disturbed. The feeding pipe has a nominal width of 100mm and feeds approx. 50kg tobacco per minute depending on cigarette requirements.
  • The measured values are forwarded to the process control system via a 4-20mA output, for visualization, recording and evaluation purposes.


Benefits of MFD3000:

  • Installed flush to inner wall pipe, no fittings in the pipe or material flow
  • Easy and fast commissioning by simple welding flange to the pipe even in existing plants
  • Suitable for pneumatic conveying systems and free fall applications
  • Adjustable measuring range from low kg/h to several t/h
  • Robust, compact and service free sensor 
  • Easy implementation of system 
  • Features analogue 4-20mA and digital interfaces

COAL DUST Mass flow measurement application

Coal dust firing systems

Application description:
At coal dust firing systems the exact dosage of dust injection is very important for the process control.
A simple control of the dosage system does not cover the requirements. Disturbances like different density of dust in a dosage supply can cause variable flow quantities to be fed in the burner. This variable flow quantities worsen the burning and therefore the burner efficiency.
Only with an exact and continuous measurement of dust flow the dosage can be controlled and adjusted to a preset value.
With the model MFD3000 flow meter an exact and continuous measurement is possible at the feeding pipe to the burner.

The measurement values are captured and evaluated in real time and can be forwarded to other systems such as visualization or dosage controllers by regular interfaces.

Benefits by the measurement:

  • Exact and continuous measurement of dust flow
  • Visualization of actual dust flow
  • Exact dosage of dust
  • Optimization of coal dust firing system


A multinational company uses dust firing systems for rotating kilns in one of their Plants.
For the optimal operating of the firing systems an exact dosage of coal dust is necessary.
To measure the flow of coal dust the model D3000 flow measuring system is successfull installed in the conveyor pipe for coal dust supply.
The sensor measures the flow rate with an accuracy of ±2%. The measured values are forwarded to the process control system via the 4-20mA output for visualization or controlling of the dosage system.

Benefits of model MFD3000:

  • Contact less on-line mass flow measurement for all bulk material also for dusts like coal dust, wood dust, rape straw dust, grain straw dust
  • Installed flush to inner wall pipe. No fittings in the pipe or in the material flow
  • Easy and fast installation by simple welding flange even in existing plants
  • Adjustable measuring range from low kg/h to several t/h
  • Robust, compact and service free sensor with Analogue and digital interfaces
