Continuous Level Indicator
A level indicator continuously determines the filling level insinde a silo, bunker, vessel or bin. Therefore you always know the current content, avoid overcrowding or emptying, and you will be able to re-order in good time if needed.
We are offering the following continuous level indicator model:
Level Indicator C-Level
retrofittable | from 2 % accuracy
The C-Level continuous level indicator is ideally suited for inventory monitoring and process control during the load-out or filling of bins and vessels containing bulk solids or liquids.
Because its unique precision strain gauge sensors are press-fit into the vessel’s support structure, the system can operate without concern for failure or maintenance issues caused by the monitored material or process environment. This distinctive design also compensates for temperature changes that can affect the accuracy of bolt-on strain sensors.
Accurate to within 2 per cent, the C-Level continuous level indicator is unaffected by corrosive or abrasive materials, uneven material discharge, build-up on sidewalls, bridging, rat-holing or dusting.
Filling any vessel or bin supported by metal members causes the supports to deform due to the addition of material weight. Although this deformation is so slight that it cannot be seen, it can be accurately measured by the sensor. When installed, this stainless steel sensor actually becomes part of the support structure. Its unique shape and its kind of installation cancel most of the effects caused by temperature changes. Once the sensor is electrically excited, a change in the strain of a support member will result in a proportional change to the output signal of the sensor. The sensor has been successfully applied to I-beam, angle, pipe and skirted silo supports in a vast number of installations. A special installation tool for easy installation is available.
