Silo Level Indicator (also called Silo Level Sensor or rotary paddle silo level indicator ) is widely used within grain storage silos to take reliable point level detection and measurement of dry bulk stored materials like grain, feed, plastic pellets, powder and aggregates. It is usually mounted on the top or side of the grain silo to monitor the height of the stored materials. When the stored material is not in contact with the paddle, the paddle rotates freely. When the tested materials rise to the installation location of the storage silos, the rotating indicator paddles will get obstruction, then the Micro Switch will open automatically, the motor stops working at the same time, and the height of the stored materials will detected.
Silo Level Indicator Applications
Silo Level Indicator is the important component of grain security system, it is widely applied for detection the height of bulk solids in the grain bins including powders, pellets and granular materials like feed, seed, grain, food, plastics, chemicals, coal and many other materials. It is can be used in grain silos, grain bins and conveyors etc.
