Standard Rotary Level Indicator

Model: BMRX

The BRMX rotary paddle bin level indicator provides reliable point level detection and measurement of dry bulk solids in bins, tanks, silos, hoppers, and material conveyors. Mounted on the top or side of a bin, the BinMaster BMRX alerts operators when bins are full—normally through the use of a horn or light. The BMRX features “de-energized” operation of the motor which shuts the motor down when material is present, saving energy costs and prolonging the motor life. It is CE approved and is appropriate for use in hazardous conditions when explosion proof protection is needed–featuring Class I, Groups C and D, Class II E, F, and G listings.
