Solids level switches

Emerson has introduced a range of new Rosemount™ solids level switches designed to optimize operations, increase safety and reduce waste by providing reliable point level monitoring and supporting overfill prevention. The introduction of switches based on four proven and trusted technologies enables Emerson to offer a complete product portfolio for continuous and point level solids measurement.

The vibrating fork, paddle, capacitance and vibrating rod switches within the new Rosemount range ensure reliable monitoring of solid materials such as powders, grains, and pellets in all silo types across industries including food and beverage, agriculture, chemical, power, cement, mining, and plastics. The compact, easy-to-operate switches require low levels of maintenance and are suitable for operation in extremely challenging environments, including those with high temperatures, high pressures, dust and risk of explosion.

The switches can be used to provide standalone point level monitoring to help optimize filling and emptying cycles. They can also be deployed within an overfill prevention system, helping to prevent wasted materials, environmental impact, high clean-up costs and damage to the silo.
