Find a selection of top or side mounted paddle level switches used in mining, food and beverage and for bulk level monitoring.
The Mini-Bin provides reliable level sensing for dry bulk solids where mounting space is limited. This compact, side mount control reports high, intermediate, and low level conditions, eliminating overflows, choking, clogs or empty vessels. Model DBLM Mini-Bin operates by using a 1 rpm synchronous motor to rotate a four vane, plastic paddle.
A 1 rpm synchronous motor rotates the paddle, utilizing a magnetic drive. As product builds up, the paddle is impeded from moving and the resulting motor torque activates the output switches and stops the motor. A spring mechanism reactivates the motor and returns the switches to normal state when the product no longer impedes the paddle rotation.
