The Rechner smart paddle capacitive sensor has a stationary electronic paddle and no moving parts. The sensor is mounted through the wall of the tank/hopper. Any product sitting on top of the paddle will be ignored. Product must be on both sides of the paddle for detection. The housing material is liquid crystal polymer (LCP) and conforms to FDA requirements. Not only can it be used for plastic powder detection, but it is safe for the food and pharmaceutical industries. The sensor does not have to be removed during tank/hopper cleaning. The built-in electronics allows for the CIP (clean in place) up to 121ºC (zero current/power off).
