Pressure Sensitive Diaphragm Style Bin Level Monitor
Monitor’s line of BINATROL® G Series diaphragm bin level monitors consists of economical, reliable, and durable point level switches for the detection of dry bulk materials. The units can be used to eliminate bin overflow, maintain a predetermined material level, indicate plugging of chutes or conveyors or provide any of a number of level control functions. The flush mount, non-intrusive BINATROL units are ideally used when vessel size or internal clearance is limited, or where minimal protrusion into a vessel is required. All installation and servicing, including diaphragm replacement and sensitivity adjustment, can be done from outside the vessel.
A diaphragm bin monitor provides level indication by detecting pressure applied by the bulk material to the sensing diaphragm. The unit is installed to a vessel wall so that the diaphragm is exposed to the material to be sensed. As material contacts the diaphragm, a force is exerted through the diaphragm to a pressure plate within the bin monitor. Physical deflection of the pressure plate activates an internal switch which is user accessible for signaling alarms, lights or PLC inputs. When material recedes from the diaphragm, a light duty spring returns the pressure plate and internal switch back to their original positions.
Features include: simple design, adjustable sesitivity, low profile mounting, over-pressure protection, external installation, choice of diaphragm materials, and optional ultra-sensitive switch.
The Model G is the standard version.
The Model GX offers all the features of the Model G, but is specially designed to provide dust-ignition proof protection. This model should be used in applications which require Class II dust-ignition proof approval.
The Model GX-SS is the dust-ignition proof version with a type 321 stainless steel diaphragm.
