The SiloPatrol® SE continuous level measurement and
Inventory monitoring system is the first truly robust smart
cable-based (weight and cable / plumb bob / yo yo type) bin
level sensor system. It is a field-proven approach to reliably
monitoring the level of material in bins, silos and tanks
up to 150 ft (45.7 m) in height.
Flexar guided wave radar continuous level monitoring technology
has been installed in thousands of powder and bulk solids
applications worldwide. We uniquely combine this strategically
acquired technology with five decades of expertise
and focus in powder and bulk solids applications, and with
our SiloTrack™ inventory management software interface.
SafePoint® rotary paddle level switch with a self-validating design
detects material presence plus continuously monitors its own ability
to function. The analysis includes sensor health and system power
failure, which makes the SafePoint truly fail-safe.
The SafePoint incorporates patented use of Hall-Effect technology,
dual outputs to indicate both material presence and unit health,
and microcontroller technology to continuously protect bulk solids
processing and storage from the consequences of unknown sensor
failure by providing immediate indication of a sensor failure
and confirmation of proper operation.
Other practical features of the SafePoint include rugged construction,
motor shut-off when paddle becomes impeded to maximize motor life, twist On/Off
cover for bolt free removal, and local status indicating light (except hazardous
A practical application for the SafePoint would be to use this "true"
fail-safe product if undetected sensor failure could result in a
catastrophic process problem.
