‘Smart’ Level Sensor

October 14, 2011

The SiloPatrol® cabled-based “smart” level sensor from Monitor Technologies can be equipped with the optional stainless steel inverted cone style plumb bob in order to provide level measurement in lighter powder & bulk solid materials (bulk densities greater than 5 lbs/ft3 [80 kg/m3]). The inverted cone style plumb bob will not penetrate lightweight or highly aerated powders as likely as a standard plumb bob may tend to do. A Teflon® coated version of this cone is also available for corrosive or sticky materials.
