Prevent Filter Damage with High Level Detectors on Your Dust Collection Hoppers

Model KA/KAX
Model KA / KAX

A variety of level sensor types are available to compliment your high level detection needs depending on the specific dust collection application. For instance, a high level sensor can be installed to alert personnel when it is time to empty a collection hopper. A rotary paddle level switch is a suitable and cost-effective solution to detect when a dust collection hopper is becoming full. For example, Monitor's Model KA/KAX and SafePoint rotary paddle level switches work best with particles that have a medium to high bulk density (25 lb/ft3 [400 kg/m3] and higher).

With materials having a lower bulk density,
a vibratory level
Model PZP
Model PZP
sensor would be a more practical choice. For example, Monitor's PZP level sensors can detect materials as light as 1.25 lb/ft3 (20 kg/m3).
