Measuring Viscosity of Fresh Concrete by Sensing Torque

Torque Measurement is a very simple mechanical process; in essence, it is a measure of the ‘force’ used in turning (or attempting to turn) something. When a force or ‘torque’ is applied to a shaft, the shaft twists (by a very small amount).

Preventing Breakdowns on Mixer Production Lines

Datum Electronics was approached by a gypsum manufacturer, who was looking for options, which would allow them to monitor the viscosity of gypsum fluid in their mixing tanks, during the production process.

Ensuring Cement Production with Real Time Power Monitoring

Recently, a cement manufacturer contacted Datum Electronics after experiencing an unexpected shaft breakage of one of the motors (used for the rotation of the kiln).
