Auger diameters range from 4 to 10 in., while lengths for almost any application are available. A variety of outlet options are available, including ferrules, flanges, BFM flexible sleeve fittings, and plain tube stubs. If the feed materials are non-free flowing, overflighting (VSFO) in the auger design can be used to improve feeding. Powder Process-Solutions, Chanhassen, MN 877-933-2556 www.powder-solutions.com Level Sensor for High Dust Environments main_head main_head main_head body body body The new BinMaster RL level sensor is designed to provide reliable bin level data in challenging environments where dust levels are extremely high. The non-contact, continuous level sensor works in powders and solid materials of all types, including low dielectric materials that, until now, have been largely incompatible with noncontact devices. The acoustics-based BinMaster RL features a self-cleaning, non-stick surface that does not require routine maintenance or air purge for cleaning. This eliminates manual cleaning of the sensor and frequent climbing of bins, which is a safety hazard. It uses acoustics-based technology at low frequencies, which allows it to penetrate dust. The acoustic waves won't reflect off heavy dust or the material surface, which can cause erratic or inaccurate measurements.
