Mechanical Rotary Switch
The BMRX rotary paddle is BinMaster’s most popular rotary level indicator, featuring a basic reliable and rugged design that provides for simple, dependable operation. The BMRX rotary is a proven technology used to prevent bin overflows and is used as a high or low level control for a wide variety of bulk solid materials including granulars, pellets or powders – providing alerts when a bin reaches a full or empty condition.
Mechanical Rotary Switch
Fail Safe Electronics
The Maxima+ is BinMaster’s most advanced rotary level indicator. Microprocessor-based, it offers genuine fail-safe protection. The distinguishing feature is its ability to continuously self-diagnose, and in the event of a failure – whether power, the motor or electronics – provide an immediate alert via a red LED indicator on the top of the unit. The MAXIMA+ is the rotary of choice when continuous operation of the unit is crucial.
The Mini-Rotary is an economical, compact rotary level control that has been designed for use in small bins and hoppers. Its small size allows the Mini-Rotary to be installed in space constrained bins that still need reliable level control. It is simple to install and use in a variety of materials including plastics, feed, seed, chemicals and other powder or bulk materials.
Internal / External Mount
The BM45 is a pressure switch that provides simple, low cost point level control with proven, lasting reliability. It is designed for use in bins containing non-hazardous, free-flowing dry materials such as grain, feed, seed or other granular or pelleted materials. The BM45 operates by sensing material pressing against the diaphragm switch. When the swtich is pressed, it activates a sensitive micro-switch that can be wired to a visual (light) or audible (horn or bell) alarm to start or stop a process or alert to high, medium or low levels in bins.
Internal / External Mount, Hazardous Location
The BM65 offers UL Class II, Groups E,F & G explosion-proof certification and can be used in environments where there is a risk of combustible dust. It provides automatic point level indication of free-flowing dry materials and can be installed to detect high, intermediate and low levels. It provides an audible or visual alert when attached to a horn, siren or light. It features simple, rugged construction and long lasting durability.
Rugged Aggregate Applications
The BinMaster Tilt Switch is a versatile, cost-effective level indicator that can be used in a wide variety of applications and materials. Activating an alert when the device tilts at least 15 degrees, it is used to detect high levels of large, heavy materials in bins, tanks and silos. Alternatively, it can be used to detect plugs or clogs in chutes during process operations. The tilt switch features a simple, mechanical design that allows it to also be used as a load sensor when positioned over open piles or conveyor belts.
Quick Calibration, Hazardous Approved
PROCAP I & II capacitance probes offer interference-free, fail-safe operation & "Quick-Set" calibration. BinMaster’s capacitance sensors are used for high and low level detection in bins, silos, tanks, hoppers, chutes and other vessels used for material storage or process manufacturing. BinMaster PROCAP I & II capacitance probes provide interference-free operation – working far below the RF level of 9 KHz at just 6 KHz. – and will not interfere with two-way radios or other equipment operating in the radio spectrum. Class II hazardous location ratings and a wide assortment of probes and extensions make these capacitance probes appropriate for a variety of solid, liquid and slurry materials.
Sanitary / Dairy
The PROCAP I 3-A & II 3-A meet rigorous USDA, FDA and 3-A material and design standards for sanitary food and dairy processing. They can be used for high and low level detection in bins, silos, tanks, hoppers, chutes and other vessels used for the storage or manufacture of food or dairy products. They operate by detecting the presence or absence of material in contact with the probe by sensing minute changes (as low as 0.5 pF) in capacitance caused by the difference in the dielectric constant of the material versus the air. They feature a Class II hazardous location rating and are available with a wide assortment of probes and extensions to meet a variety of processing needs.
The PROCAP I-FL & II-FL offer “no probe intrusion” and are designed for space constrained areas or applications where material flow or bridging may damage a standard probe. It can be mounted on a bin wall, conveyor housing or a chute. The face of the bottom of the FL serves as the capacitance sensor which features Pro-Shield compensation for material build up and an adjustable time delay of up to 30 seconds to ensure accurate readings. The screw-cap enclosure offers easy access to components, which is especially handy in space-constrained installations.
Remote Housing for High Temp, Vibration, Hazardous Areas
The Pro Remote capacitance sensor features remote electronics located in a housing that is separated from the probe making it suitable for high temperature, high vibration, or hazardous environments. It is CSA Class II listed and allows for the electronics to be installed up to 75 feet from the sensing probe and the hostile conditions, depending on the required sensitivity. It offers simple, "Quick-Set" calibration and adjustable sensitivity to less than one picofarad, making it highly reliable in a variety of powders, solids, liquids and slurries.
Compact OEM Probe
Compact Pro is a compact capacitance probe for reliable level measurement and plugged chute detection for liquid, powder, granular, and pelleted materials. This probe is designed for tight spaces where proximity switches will not work and is appropriate for use in tanks, bins, silos, chutes, conveyors, pipes and load out hoppers. It features four levels of static discharge protection, which is important for pneumatically conveyed materials.
The CVR-600 is a compact vibrating rod that is ideal for small bins, hoppers, and feeders. Featuring an overall insertion length of just six inches, it is suitable for space-constrained applications. It can be mounted on the top or side of the bin for high, medium and low level indications. It is easy to install, fitting through a standard one-inch NPT mounting socket and can be used in process temperatures up to 300ºF.
