Vibrating Rod for Sediment Level Detection

March 26, 2013

BinMaster vibrating rodBinMaster Level Controls' new vibrating rod for sediment level detection is designed to measure the level of solid material that has settled in a tank containing liquids. It is used to detect when a layer of solid material reaches a specific level in a tank. The vibrating rod vibrates in water and then stops vibrating when the solid material reaches the level of the probe. When wired to a horn or alarm panel, personnel are alerted when the sediment has reached the probe and the sediment needs to be removed from the tank. The BinMaster vibrating rod for sediment level detection comes in two different models. The VR-21 SED is the standard model with a 7.37-inch insertion length and is recommended for use on the tank wall. The VR-41 SED model is a rigid extended vibrating rod for top mounting applications and is custom made with extensions from 13 inches up to 13 feet long, dependent on the needs of the application.
