BINMASTER®’s new BM-TSM Tilt Switch mounts on the top of the bin and activates an alarm when material rises and tilts the switching mechanism 15°. The shaft of the tilt switch is custom-made in lengths from 1-ft up to 8-ft in length, depending upon the distance from the top of the bin, an alert should be activated. The BM-TSM is available with either a paddle or sphere mounted at the end of the shaft and can be used in materials with a bulk density of at least 15 lbs/cubic foot. Its protective boot protects the tilt mechanism and ensures long operational life. It is easy to install through a 1 1/4″ NPT process connection on the roof of the bin and has the ability to send an alert status to a horn, light, or control panel.
“This unique tilt switch can be used as an alternative to a top-mounted rotary level indicator and is suitable for a wide range of solid materials in most any industry,” stated Todd Peterson, VP of Sales for BINMASTER®. “The BM-TSM is a simple, mechanical, and rugged design that operates reliably in a wide range of temperatures and is tough enough to withstand the harshness of granules and lump solid materials.”
