Tech Tip  -----------------

Insertable Paddles Simplify Installation of Bin Level Switch

SafePoint® sensor with 2-vane collapsible paddle
Monitor Technologies offers a wide selection of interchangeable paddle assemblies for the SafePoint®  and Model KA/KAX level sensors to meet the needs of a variety of materials / applications. 

Noted below are three "insertable-style" paddles that simplify the installation process of the rotary paddle level switches. Each of these paddles can be inserted and removed from the outside of a bin or silo through an existing 1-1/4" NPT coupling. They also can be used with level switches that are mounted vertically or horizontally.

2-Vane Collapsible Paddle
The 2-vane collapsible design and the 8.66" (220 mm) turning diameter allow the paddle to provide dependable level indication for average bulk density materials.

Scimitar Single-Vane Paddle
The scimitar is a stainless steel insertable paddle that provides low and high level control for light to average weight materials with its 7" (177.8 mm) turning diameter.

Single Vane Paddle
This stainless steel single vane paddle is insertable through a half 1-1/4" coupling. It turns in a 5" circle and provides level control for heavy materials under 1-1/2" (38 mm) in diameter.
