Sensor Measure Solids In Temperatures Up To 900 Degrees
BinMaster Level Controls recently announced the SmartBob-SH and SmartBob-SHT sensors, which are specially designed for measuring the level of solid materials in storage and processing bins experiencing very high temperatures. The High Temp or SmartBob-HT model is for applications where the process temperature is over 240 degrees F and under 500 degrees F. The Super High Temp or SmartBob-SHT model can handle temperatures up to 900 degrees F and has been used in coke-oven batteries that experience brief temperature bursts of up to 1685 degrees F.
The SmartBob-HT and SHT sensors are configured with additional components that when installed properly, will safely operate in extreme temperatures. A 36-inch stainless steel standpipe is used to extend the remote away from the heat source and a stainless steel pipe extension fitted with a Teflon cable guide keeps the sensor probe out of the standpipe and level with the top of the bin. A standard air purge nipple allows a small amount of air to circulate through the mechanical cavity of the remote, helping it maintain an acceptable operating temperature. SmartBob-HT and SHT sensors are extremely rugged, featuring a durable, bare stainless steel cable and long-lasting motor design which is completely sealed in a strong, lightweight molded polycarbonate enclosure that is explosion proof and rated for Class II, Groups E, F & G certifications.
“SmartBob-HT and SHT are just two of various sensor options that can be used in conjunction with the SmartBob weight and cable inventory measurement system,” said
