This compact, integral switch is suitable for high or low-level detection in hoppers or silos. It may also be used for plugged chute detection. The single-piece probe and the unique self-clean cycle avoid problems of buildup. The sensitivity of the instrument can be adjusted to detect a variety of solid materials ranging from heavy granular materials to light powders with bulk densities less than one pound per cubic meter.
The Solitel rod vibrates at a frequency of 350 Hz. When in contact with the media, the vibration is dampened. The attenuation of the vibration is detected by the integral mount electronics which change the state of the relay. The unique self-clean feature is activated when the vibration is dampened. The self-clean circuitry increases the amplitude of the vibration to dislodge any buildup which may have occurred.
- Single rod design eliminates clogging.
- High-temperature version up to +160 °C (+320 °F).
- Self-clean cycle and polished probe minimize solids buildup.
- Adjustable sensitivity allows easy calibration for various bulk densities.
- Extended rigid probes up to 2540 mm (100″).
- Extended flexible lengths to 20 m (65′).
Powders and bulk solids with maximum particle size of 10 mm (1/2″) including:
- Plastic powders and pellets
- Wood chips and sawdust
- Pulverized coal
- Fly ash
- Cement, lime
- Aerosil® (fume silica)
