LEVEL SENSOR – Model 510
PRECIPITATOR HOPPER – FLY ASH APPLICATION
900 F. MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE
This unit is a flush mount capacitance type point level sensor that detects the
presence or absence of material directly contacting the 2 ½” sensor disk.
Robust construction includes a ceramic sensor disk that allows continuous
operation up to 900 F. The sensor can be manufactured with a remote
electronics package. This allows the electrical housing to be located on the
floor of the hopper area, making it easy for initial electrical hook-up as well as
ongoing monitoring of the sensor’s performance.
This system has been used as an alternative to nuclear level sensors.
Normal installation requires mounting the sensor head flush with the inside of
the bin or hopper wall, producing a non-intrusive level control system. A
special adjustment feature allows the sensor head to be projected internally up
to 6 inches in cases where a non-flush installation is necessary.
