ores or other lump materials.

November 29, 2013, Lincoln, Neb. –  BinMaster has announced a new flexible shaft
rotary for detecting high levels in bins containing rock, aggregates, coal,
ores or other lump materials. This type of rotary extension may be desirable in
conditions where a rigid extension could be damaged or bent by heavy material.
Both the standard BMRX and fail-safe MAXIMA+ rotary level indicators can now be
configured with this flexible shaft extension.

This extension can be used when the rotary is mounted on the
top of the vessel and used for high level detection. The single, flexible 8 mm
cable attached to the rotary power pac shaft must be a minimum of four inches
and a maximum of 14 feet long. An 8” counterweight at the end of the cable
includes a coupler for attaching the paddle. To configure the rotary, the
length of the counterweight, coupler and paddle must be added to the length of
the cable. A flexible, extended rotary is very easy to install using any
standard 1-1/4” coupler and is easier to install than a rigid extension that
has a risk of bending.

Both the BMRX and MAXIMA+ rotary level indicators feature durable
construction and a simple, dependable design, including a screw-off cover for
easy access to internal components and dual conduit entrances to simplify
wiring. Standard features include a switch selectable, high/low fail-safe to
alert to power loss and a de-energizing motor for extended operational life.

BinMaster’s advanced MAXIMA+ rotary level indicator features
a complete fail-safe system that alerts to the loss of power, failure of the
motor, or failure of the electronics. A red LED indicator light on the top of
the unit indicates its status, providing for quick visual monitoring of the
unit. In applications where the status and performance of the rotary is
critical, the MAXIMA+ provides peace of mind.
