Level Sensor for High Dust Environments

The new BinMaster RL level sensor is designed to provide reliable bin level data in challenging environments where dust levels are extremely high. The non-contact, continuous level sensor works in powders and solid materials of all types, including low dielectric materials that, until now, have been largely incompatible with non-contact devices. The acoustics-based BinMaster RL features a self-cleaning, non-stick surface that does not require routine maintenance or air purge for cleaning. This eliminates manual cleaning of the sensor and frequent climbing of bins, which is a safety hazard. It uses acoustics-based technology at low frequencies, which allows it to penetrate dust. The acoustic waves won’t reflect off heavy dust or the material surface, which can cause erratic or inaccurate measurements.
