BinMaster has announced a new flexible shaft rotary for detecting high levels in bins containing rock, aggregates, coal, ores or other lump materials. This type of rotary extension may be desirable in conditions where a rigid extension could be damaged or bent by heavy material. Both the standard BMRX and fail-safe MAXIMA+ rotary level indicators can now be configured with this flexible shaft extension.
The extension can be used when the rotary is mounted on the top of the vessel and used for high level detection. The single, flexible 8-mm cable attached to the rotary power pac shaft must be a minimum of 4 in. and a maximum of 14-ft. long. An 8-in. counterweight at the end of the cable includes a coupler for attaching the paddle. To configure the rotary, the length of the counterweight, coupler and paddle must be added to the length of the cable. A flexible, extended rotary is very easy to install using any standard 1-1/4-in. coupler and is easier to install than a rigid extension that has a risk of bending, notes the company.
Both the BMRX and MAXIMA+ rotary level indicators feature rugged construction and a simple, dependable design, including a screw-off cover for easy access to internal components and dual conduit entrances to simplify wiring. Standard features include a switch selectable, high/low fail-safe to alert to power loss and a de-energizing motor for extended operational life.
