SLM: Vibrating Fork Level Sensor
Item Code: SLM
A specially shaped tuning fork is kept vibrating using piezo-electric elements. The oscillation of the fork damps when in contact with the material. The loss of oscillation amplitude is detected and used for switching a relay. The output contacts of the relay are in turn used for annunciation or control.
- Suitable for detection of underwater chips
- Configured for high and low level fail-safe detection.
- Non-stick PTFE/Halar coatings are also available for special applications.
- Variation of electrical characteristics of the service material such as conductivity and dielectric constant do not affect its operation.
In the brewery industry, raw materials require vibrating forks for level detection purposes.
- Barley Grains
- Mash Tun
These small and light-weight PET chips can be detected with the help of a vibration type level switch.
- Plastic Chips
- PVC Chips
