High Temp Vibrating Rod

Model: SHT-120 and SHT-140

The SHT or Super High Temperature vibrating rod series is built specifically for higher process temperatures up to 482°F (250°C). It features a standard insulation tube that insulates the electronics from excessive heat. It has a standard insertion length of 7.24 inches for both top and side mount applications. It can be extended from 13 inches up to 13 feet using a rigid pipe extension for top mount applications. It has three sensitivity settings, does not require calibration, and can be used to detect extremely light, fluffy materials. SHT vibrating rods feature BinMaster’s unique stainless steel single-rod probe design that prevents bridging and buildup of material on the sensor.
