With recent release from Pacific Sensor Technologies of the full line of level measurement sensors from Bin Master, a complete range of capacitance probes are now available.

Pacific Sensor Technologies range of Bin Master capacitance probes are suitable for grain and bulk storage, food processing, concrete and aggregates, asphalt, feed mill, biodiesel, and powder handling applications. The range of capacitance probes available from Pacific Sensor Technologies includes PROCAP I and II capacitance probes that offer interference-free, fail-safe operation and "Quick-Set" calibration. BinMaster’s capacitance sensors are used for high and low level detection in bins, silos, tanks, hoppers, chutes and other vessels used for material storage or process manufacturing.

The PROCAP IX and IIX capacitance sensors are designed for use in hazardous locations, featuring CSA Class I, Groups C and D and Class II, Groups E, F and G ratings. These capacitance sensors are suitable for challenging environments where there is a risk of explosion, detecting high and low levels in bins, silos, tanks, hoppers, chutes and other vessels used for volatile material storage or process manufacturing.

The PROCAP I 3-A and II 3-A capacitance sensors/probes meet rigorous USDA, FDA and 3-A material and design standards for sanitary food and dairy processing. They can be used for high and low level detection in bins, silos, tanks, hoppers, chutes and other vessels used for the storage or manufacture of food or dairy products.

The PROCAP I-FL and II-FL capacitance sensors/ probes offer “no probe intrusion” and are designed for space constrained areas or applications where material flow or bridging may damage a standard probe. It can be mounted on a bin wall, conveyor housing or a chute.

Pro Auto-Cal capacitance sensor offers simple and automatic calibration and external testing without having to remove the cover of the unit. Calibration takes only a few seconds and is performed with the use of a special magnet.

The Pro Remote capacitance sensor features remote electronics located in a housing that is separated from the probe making it suitable for high temperature, high vibration, or hazardous environments. It is CSA Class II listed and allows for the electronics to be installed up to 75 feet from the sensing probe and the hostile conditions.

Compact Pro is a compact capacitance probe for reliable level measurement and plugged chute detection for liquid, powder, granular, and pelleted materials. This probe is designed for tight spaces where proximity switches will not work and is appropriate for use in tanks, bins, silos, chutes.
