Several applications come to mind where a bulk solids flow meter may be a great fit for a certain application.
Inaccurately loading a container, truck, or rail car can have undesirable repercussions. Overloading with too much material is not only a loss of revenue but could also result in stiff fines when shipping. There is also the additional time lost for unloading and reloading the container. A flow meter can be used for a more accurately fill.
