Bin Control has announced the release of the BinMaster BRMX rotary paddle bin level indicator, designed to provide reliable point level detection and measurement of dry bulk solids in bins, tanks, silos, hoppers and conveyors.
According to the company, the BinMaster BRMX alerts operators when bins are full without the risks associated with climbing and continuously checking bins levels.
When material is not in contact with the paddle, the paddle rotates freely.
Once the paddle comes into contact with dry bulk material, the paddle stops rotating and sends a signal, normally through the use of a horn or light, to alert that the bin is full.
The BinMaster BMRX features “de-energised” operation of the motor, which shuts the motor down when materials are present.
Power is not consumed until the bin is emptied and the drive shaft again begins to rotate, which Bin Control says saves on energy costs and prolongs motor life.
The BMRX rotary design also includes a screw-top enclosure for easy access to motorised parts.
