Without proper bulk storage management, managers face overflows, outages, production stoppage and even employee injuries. The BMR-100 rotary sensor offers simple, electromechanical measurement for ordinary storage and processing operations. It is generally wired to a light or horn to alert to high or empty levels.

The new BMR-100 rotary is an affordable level switch to alert to vessel levels in solid materials with a bulk density of two pounds to more than 100 lb./cubic feet.

A rotary paddle switch is used across many process industries. Some of the more common industrial applications include:

  • Agriculture for storage bins containing grain, seed, feed, fertilizer or bulk ingredients.

  • The construction industry storage silos for concrete, cement or roofing granules. 

  • Mining and minerals such as sand, gravel, aggregate, coal storage and surge bins.

  • Plastic molding operations to detect level of plastics pellets in silos or hoppers.

This versatile level indicator is offered with a wide range of accessories. There are 19 different paddles for light, medium and heavy bulk solid materials. Collapsible paddles are convenient for installation without entering the vessel. Carbon and stainless-steel mounting plates options come in 0, 10, 20 and 30 degree angles for top mounting on sloped roofs.

Point-level alarm panels display vessel level conditions via a blinking light and an audible alarm with up to 24-level indicator stations. Quick-disconnect accessories can be added to replace hard wiring. They make BMR-100 easy to install and remove for cleaning, maintenance or replacement. An adjustable top mount allows you to change the high-level threshold simply using an adjustable coupling that can be moved up and down a 72-inch shaft.

The BMR-100 is in stock and available for immediate shipment.
