A system was developed to measure the mass flow of granular fertilizer material in aerial spreader ducts. The flow process was regarded as the sequential passage of clusters containing multiple particles with varying diameters. An optical sensor was used to measure the cluster lengths on the fly. In a low–density flow regime, the diameter of each particle… CONTINUE READING
