Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0943707A2] The amount of material (FM) entering and leaving the store (S) between the working sections (AO1, AO2) is measured continuously. The difference between the values is used by a computer (Z) to control the speed of the drive motor (M1) of the working section which has the slower response. Independent claims are also included for stores (S) for linked working sections (AO1, AO2) with such a control arrangement using the signals from transducers (T1, T2) fitted to both working sections and an extension of the principle to three working sections.
