RFnivo 3000 Capacitive Level Switch
The RFnivo capacitive level switch is used for level monitoring in all types of containers and silos. It can be used with all powdery and granulated bulk materials, slurry and liquids. The units can be delivered with Ex-approvals for use in Dust and Gas Hazardous Areas.
- Flour, Grain, Sugar
- Carbon Black
- Slurry and Liquids
Principle of Operation
The RFnivo is normally screwed into the lateral container wall at a position, where the material shall be measured. The device can also be mounted from the top of the container. In this case an extension piece is used to mount the probe level with the height to be measured.
The length of the probe can be up to 2.5m (98.4") with rod extension or 20m (787") with rope extension.
The use of a sliding sleeve is recommended so that the switch point can be changed continuously during operation of the device.
