Eliminating Premature Rotary Paddle Bin Level Indicator Motor Failures at Strong Company, Inc.

PROBLEM:
“I am tired of frequent replacement of bin indicator motors. I need a long-lasting level control that is reliable”

EXPLANATION:
Strong Company in Pine Bluff, AR manufactures lightweight cementitious products for commercial and residential use. They heat treat the minerals Vermiculite and Perlite and then blend them with binders like cement and gypsum. They have about 50 bin level indicators in their plant and were using "B" rotary paddle bin level indicators. However, Strong wasn’t happy with the cost of frequent motor failures and needed a cost-effective solution.

SOLUTION:
The Monitor Technologies Model KA provided the answer to Strong’s problems. The KA rotary paddle bin level indicator uses a heavy-duty electric motor and a unique motor shut-off mechanism with external clutch and adjustable sensitivity. Rather than “stalling” the motor and allowing it to continue to over-torque and turn against the buried paddle, the Monitor Model KA shuts the motor off and extends overall life and ensures long-term reliability. Monitor’s Model KA is used as low and high level alarms on silos, bins and containers throughout Strong Company’s production operation.

Strong Company prefers the Monitor unit to other brands and also likes the new screw-on/off cover that Monitor introduced in 2003. This eliminates the bolts common on other brands
