Pacific Sensor Technologies introduces two new vibrating rods designed to detect the level of sediment or solid material settled in a tank containing liquids.
Bin Master’s VR-21 SED and VR-41 SED vibrating rods vibrate in water, only stopping when solid material reaches the level of the probe. When wired to a horn or alarm panel, the vibrating rod alerts personnel the moment the sediment reaches the probe so that the sediment can be removed from the tank.
Pacific Sensor Technologies’ VR-21 SED and VR-41 SED vibrating rods are commonly used in the water and wastewater industry where the sensor is used to detect the level of salt, lime, chemicals, silt and sediment that have settled in tanks at water treatment plants. The vibrating rod is also useful in food and beverage manufacturing, chemical or metal processing, pulp and paper making, and mining applications.
While the standard VR-21 SED features a 7.37” insertion length and is recommended for use on the tank wall, the VR-41 SED model is a rigid extended vibrating rod for top mounting applications and is custom made with extensions from 13” up to 13’ long, based on the application.
Applications of the VR-21 and VR-41 SED vibrating rods:
- Measuring sediment in brine tanks or soak tanks
- Detecting sand or silt settled in tanks at quarries or mines
- Ensuring timely removal of sand and dirt at pumping stations
- Measuring manure or compost that has settled in refuse vessels
- Detecting the level of materials such as ash, carbon, lime, silt and mud once they have settled under water
