Solids tilt level switch - SOLIBA EX GP

Description :



This ATEX certified tilt level switch (CertificationATEX II 1 GD Ex ia IIC T6) has been designed to provide high level measurement in silos or any other type of storage containers located in hazardous areas 0, 1,2 (Gas) 20, 21, 22 (dust).

Its operation is very simple: Vertically suspended at the desired high level point, the SOLIBA EX GP will tilt as the grain reaches the unit.

To secure your facilities at a minimum cost, the installation of a SOLIBA EX GP high level mechanical tilt level switch is strongly recommended, even if your facilities are already equipped with other types of equipment such as: rotating paddles, vibrating forks, radars, capacitive and ultrasonic sensors, etc.

The SOLIBA EX GP tilt level switch only operates when the high level is reached, unlike other types of level measurement devices that operate permanently

The tilt level switch must be installed at the opposite side of the arrival of grain and at a certain distance from the silo walls. This to ensure an optimal tilting operation.

This model is also available in a P version (Dust). Please see SOLIBA EX P ATEX certified
