BinMaster announced an innovative, patent-pending tilt switch used for high level detection of powders and bulk solids. The new BM-TSM tilt switch mounts on the top of the bin and activates an alarm when 23 BinMaster 95material rises and tilts the switching mechanism 15 degrees. The shaft of the tilt switch is custom-made in lengths from 1 ft. to 8 ft. in length, dependent upon the distance from the top of the bin an alert should be activated. The BM-TSM tilt switch is available with either a paddle or sphere mounted at the end of the shaft and can be used in materials with a bulk density of at least 15 lb. per cu. ft.

This unique tilt switch can be used as an alternative to a top-mounted rotary level indicator and is suitable for a wide range of solid materials in most any industry. The simple, mechanical design is rugged and operates reliably in a wide range of temperatures and is tough enough to withstand the harshness of granules and lump solid materials. The protective boot protects the tilt mechanism and ensures long operational life. The BM-TSM tilt switch is easy to install through a 1-1/4-in. NPT process connection on the roof of the bin and sends an alert status to a horn, light or control panel.
