Brewhouse grains weighing with a solids flow meter.

Pickering, J.W.

The Nolte solids flow meter, manufactured by Kingmann White Inc., Placentia, California, is described in brewery operation. This device operates by allowing grain to fall freely down a tube and to impact on to an impulse sensor whose displacement is measured by a pneumatic position transducer. The grain passes over the sensor and falls downward out of the meter. This type of meter appears to have been reliable in use as part of a system including pneumatic grain unloading and a 15000 lb/h Buhler mill and screen. The Nolte meter is both smaller and cheaper than conventional metering equipment.
