Point level switches for high-pressure, high-temperature, liquid/solid interfaces

October 10, 2005

Paddle switch and vibrating level switch are now available in high-temperature, high-pressure, and interface versions. The new products provide reliable high- and low-level alarms for a wide variety of bulk solid applications. The new high-temperature version of the rotating paddle switch withstands temperatures of up to 428 degrees F. The latest high-pressure version performs in environments with pressures up to 145 psi, and the new interface version of the vibrating point level switch detects solids in liquids. These switches are rugged in design, easy to calibrate, and connect to alarm and control systems. The rotating paddle switch is suitable for detecting full, empty, or demand conditions in materials including grain, animal feed, cement, plastic granules and wood chips. It has a dual bearing seal for protection against dust and humidity. A friction clutch mechanism also offers protection against falling material and prevents gear failure. Configurations available include a compact version, a version with protective pipe, and one with a cable extension up to 32 feet.
