Level indicators can be incredibly versatile, but what all can they be used for? Below are some examples of applications for level indicators.
- High, low and/or intermediate point level indication of stored materials.
- Provide silo overfill protection.
- Batching applications.
- Turn “on” or “off” other processes based on the detected presence or non-presence of material.
- High level detection for dust collection hoppers.
- Level indication of open stock piles.
- Plugged chute detection. Click Here for more details
- And more…Only limited by our imaginations.
The next question might be, “which type of sensor would be best?”
There are a variety of different sensor types, including rotary paddle, RF capacitance, vibratory, pressure-sensitive, tilt switches and more.
A few factors that need to be considered when choosing a level indicator include material characteristics (density, dielectric, etc.), process temperature, process conditions (combustible dust, etc.), sensor technology and cost.
