Here are the available subcategories:
Free Flowing Granules
Unique design probe that prevents build up to provide trouble free switching on free flowing powders and granules grains and plastic pellets.
Low Bulk Density materials
Twin probes providing narrow surface area for very light bulk density materials eg, flour.
For Solids or Liquids
Universal Switch with immunity to conductive and none conductive build up.
Free Flowing Granules
The Nivelco NIVOCONT R series of vibrating rod level switches are robust instruments designed for low and high level detection of granules and powders with a minimum of 0.05 kg/dm3 density. Mounted on tanks, silos or hopper bins it can control filling / emptying, or give fail-safe alarm signals.
The SHT or Super High Temperature vibrating rod series is built specifically for higher process temperatures up to 482°F (250°C). It features a standard insulation tube that insulates the electronics from excessive heat. It has a standard insertion length of 7.24 inches for both top and side mount applications. It can be extended from 13 inches up to 13 feet using a rigid pipe extension for top mount applications where extra length is desired.
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.
Sanitary / Dairy
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.
Explosion Proof Applications
Designed for use in hazardous locations, featuring CSA Class I, Groups C & D and Class II, Groups E,F & G ratings. They are suitable for challenging environments where there is a risk of explosion, detecting high and low levels in bins, silos, tanks, hoppers, chutes and other vessels used for volatile material storage or process manufacturing. These intrinsically safe 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.
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.
Quick Calibration, Hazardous Approved
These probes offer interference-free, fail-safe operation & "Quick-Set" calibration,are used for high and low level detection in bins, silos, tanks, hoppers, chutes and other vessels used for material storage or process manufacturing. 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.
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.
Compact OEM Probe
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.
