Cost-Effective Level or Backed-Up Conveyor Chute Indication for Powder and Bulk Solids...Including Abrasive Dry Materials
Binatrol® Model G/GX series diaphragm switch
A diaphragm-style level switch is a reliable and cost-effective way to detect levels of powder and bulk solids in storage bins, silos and other vessels. Especially in tight spaces. In addition to level indication, the diaphragm switch can be used to detect plugged or backed-up conveyor chutes. For example, there are several companies that install Monitor Technologies' Binatrol® Model G/GX series of diaphragm switches with the optional Hycar® covers to be used as alarms for backed-up conveyors of powder or pulverized coal chutes that provide feedstock to boilers.
Use With Abrasive Materials
The Hycar® (rubber nitrile) optional cover is designed to provide the Binatrol® Model G/GX series diaphragm bin level switch with additional durability for use with more abrasive dry materials like powder or pulverized coal and more.
About The Binatrol® Model G/GX Series These diaphragm-style level switches are surface mounted, minimally intrusive units that make them ideal for vessels or chutes limited in size or internal clearance. Also, the diaphragm switch requires no input power.
DustAlarm® Detects Filter Leaks or Failures In Dust
Monitor Technologies' DustAlarm® particle emissions detector or "broken bag" detector is designed to detect filter failures and leaking filters in the exhaust ducts of bag houses, cartridge collectors, cyclones and other dust collection systems containing filters which may break or wear out with time.
The DustAlarm® broken bag detector uses time-proven triboelectric technology to continuously monitor the level of dust emission in dust collection system exhausts. When an increase in emission level exceeds the user adjusted setting, an alarm is triggered as indicated by the unit's output relay changing state. The DustAlarm has a unique extended insulator to guard against material build-up problems, as well as, a unique quick-disconnect mounting coupling to provide quick and easy installation and maintenance when needed.
TrueCap® RF Capacitance Level Sensor Available with
Quick-Connect Process Connection
The now available "quick-connect" tri-clamp process connection option provides easy installation and removal of the TrueCap® unit for cleaning purposes. This connection has no exposed threads and offers an affordable solution for general sanitation situations not requiring 3-A rating. The tri-clamp connection is available for the Ryton® and Nylon (food grade) versions of the standard and stub probes. Plus, the quick-connect fitting can accommodate both a 1" and 1-1/2" ferrule size. Clamping accessories are available.
TrueCap® Tri-clamp Connection and Available Accessories
Monitor Technologies' TrueCap® Model MK-2 & MK-2e RF Capacitance point level sensors are designed to provide a superior and stable sensitivity threshold making them reliable solutions for a variety of powder and bulk solids, liquid and slurry applications. They both also include automatic immunity to material build-up on the probes by the driven shield design.
Advanced features of the TrueCap® Model MK-2 include push-button calibration & test, enhanced temperature compensation and maximized reliability via smart sensing algorithms like "self-validating" fail-safe protection.
Monitor Technologies' facility in Elburn, IL will be closed Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day.
We hope that you and your family have a happy and safe Memorial weekend.
