Tech Tip #1 --------------------
    
Solution For Promoting Material Flow 
Evasser 
Booted Evasser Aeration Device
Bulk materials, especially powders, stored in vessels can settle (pack) and tend not to flow well through a process system. Monitor Technologies' Evasser is a bin aeration device used to maintain the flow of dry bulk powders and granular solids in storage vessels.


Why Choose the Evasser...
 
> Monitor's booted Evasser aerator is compact, durable and capable of aerating / fluidizing many types of bulk powders and granular solids in bins, hoppers and silos.   
> It operates by constantly presenting air to the mass of the stored material...Typical effective radius of 12 inches (305mm) per Evasser device.  Evasser Diagragm
> Features no moving parts...very low maintenance.

> No loud noise or damaging vibrations caused by pneumatic or electric vibrators.
> No filters to change or clean.

> Unlike other types of aerators that use cotton or canvas to diffuse the air, the Evasser is less likely to be bound or clogged due to moisture and can be more effective as it directs air flow to "sweep" the bin wall.

>
Not as prone to back-flow of material since the standard neoprene boot expands to let the pressurized air out and contracts when the air is shut off blocking the air outlets from material back-flow.     
    
Options:
> Black Neoprene boot or optional white FDA Neoprene boot (ideal for many food / dry ingredient processes and more). 
> Evasser unit can be provided in either cast iron or 316 stainless steel construction.
> Available with an optional convenient external mounting plate.

RadarRightTM Series 400
RadarRight is Monitor Technologies' latest addition to its continuous level sensor line. The RadarRight is a non-contact radar continuous level sensor which means nothing to "touch" your process.  

Highlights:
  • The RadarRight Series 400 provides dependable, real-time level measurements at the "right" price for use with powders, bulk solids and liquids.
  • The instrument uses proven microwave "pulse" technology and has a small beam angle to concentrate energy for high accuracy and reliability.
  • The sensor has no moving parts to wear which leads to long operational life and low maintenance.
  • The RadarRight is easy to set-up / configure with the included LCD push button display module.
  • Analog or RS-485 (Modbus Compatible) versions are offered.
  • Gimbal (swivel) style process connection allows for aiming antenna for added measurement accuracy and for avoiding internal obstacles, flow streams, etc. 
  • Suitable for various metal or nonmetal storage vessels. 
  • Air purge or dust shield options to optimize sensor performance in dusty conditions.
  • Series 200 for liquid applications is also available.

Tech Tip #2 ---------
   
Cost-Effective Level or Backed-Up Conveyor Chute Indication for Powder and Bulk Solids 
 
G Series 
Binatrol Model G/GX series diaphragm switch
A diaphragm-style level switch is a reliable and cost-effective way to detect levels of powder and bulk solids in storage bins, silos and other vessels...especially in tight spaces. In addition to level indication, the diaphragm switch can be used to detect plugged or backed-up conveyor chutes. For example, there are several companies that install Monitor Technologies' Binatrol® Model G/GX series of diaphragm switches with the optional Hycar® (rubber nitrile) covers to be used as alarms for backed-up conveyors of powder or pulverized coal chutes that provide feedstock to boilers.

About The Binatrol® Model G/GX Series 
These diaphragm-style level switches are surface mounted, minimally intrusive units that make them ideal for vessels or chutes limited in size or internal clearance. Also, the diaphragm switch requires no input power.

Additional Solutions for Plugged Chute Detection
Other types of level sensors and solids flow monitors can be used to detect plugged chute situations.
