Chute Switch

Liên hệ

Chute Switch is sensor that detects chute clogging that occurs when belt conveyors are transferred. This helps prevent overflows, production losses, and air pollution. It is widely used in ore transport conveyor chutes at coal-fired power plants and steel mills.

Brand: Matsushima
Origin: Japan


Early detection of chute clogging

  1. You can avoid overflow and suppress dust generation to the surrounding environment.
  2. Conveyor damage and fire can be avoided.
  3. It is possible to avoid quality defects due to the supply to the next process being interrupted.


  • Do not protrude into chute
  • No power supply required
  • Explosion proof

Operating principle

Install by drilling a hole in side wall of chute.
When the chute is clogged, the conveyed object pushes the detection plate inside the chute switch.
In conjunction with this, the limit switch works.

How to use?

  1. Determine mounting position

    Decide upper level you want to detect. Since there is a possibility that material thrown from the conveyor may come flying, please decide the installation position to avoid it.
  2. Mounting:
    Once the mounting position has been determined, drill a specified hole in location where you want to detect. Weld a chute switch over the hole.
  3. Wiring:

    Wire to contact output. No power supply required.
  4. Adjustment:

    Adjust torque of detection plate with adjustment spring.
