BinMaster has developed a bendable capacitance probe that is designed to fit in tight spaces or in vessels where obstructions prevent the installation of a straight probe. This probe can be bent to avoid obstructions in a vessel, while still allowing adequate probe surface area to confirm the presence or absence of material. Mounted on the side of the bin, the bendable probe can be used in a wide range of solid materials or slurries. One common application for the bendable probe is for high- and low-level detection in smaller mixers or containers used in food processing plants. The probe offers interference-free, fail-safe operation and "quick-set" calibration. The probe provides interference-free operation – working far below the RF level of 9 KHz at just 6 KHz – and will not interfere with two-way radios or other equipment operating in the radio spectrum.
