Electronic Monitoring Equipment

4B offers an extensive range of monitoring equipment and sensors for bucket elevators, belt and chain conveyors, screw conveyors and silos. We can offer you anything from a replacement sensor to a fully integrated hazard monitoring system which can be operated either as a stand-alone system or connected to your PLC.

The bucket elevator is one of the most efficient methods for elevating bulk granular materials - but it is also one of the most dangerous. The dust generated from the movement of materials within the elevator can be highly explosive, and mechanical failure or incorrect operation of the bucket elevator can have catastrophic consequences. The most common hazards on bucket elevators are belt misalignment, belt slippage, blocked chutes, and bearing failures, each of which should be monitored to reduce the risk of fires, explosions or breakdowns that result in costly downtime.

4b offer a range of monitoring equipment and sensors to monitor those hazards.

Belt Conveyors are used in many bulk material handling applications ranging from agricultural application such as grain handling through to heavy duty applications, such as quarrying and mining. They consist of 2 or more pulleys with a continuous loop of conveyor belt that rotates around them.

4B supplies a complete range of ATEX / IECEx / CSA approved monitoring equipment for belt conveyors, designed to monitor belt conveyors for dangerous conditions and prevent costly downtimes. The range includes belt misalignment and belt rip detectors, speed switches, bearing temperature sensors, choke switches, pullwire conveyor safety stop switches and multi-functional monitoring systems for belt conveyors.

Chain Conveyors are an essential part of many bulk handling systems, where they are used to convey bulk materials such as powders, grains, flakes and pellets. 

4B has a wide range of sensors for monitoring the various parts of your drag chain conveyor. The most common areas for monitoring include: bearing temperature, speed / motion, level / plug indication and slack / broken chain detection.

All of 4B's sensors can be connected to our hazard monitoring systems.

Screw conveyors provide an enclosed method of transferring materials both horizontally and on an inclination.

4B offer a range of electronic monitoring components that can be used on screw conveyors to ensure that they operate efficiently and safely, including blockage detectors, bearing temperature monitors and rotation speed monitors. Click on the links below to view these product on the 4B website.
