Monitor Technologies’ new 2-vane collapsible paddle is insertable from the outside of a bin or silo through a 1-1/4-inch NPT or 1-1/2-inch BSPT coupling. This stainless steel paddle assembly can be used with Monitor’s SafePoint® fail-safe and Model KA/KAX rotary paddle level switches. The “spring” action of the paddle also allows it to be removed from the same opening if needed. The 2-vane design and the 8.66-inch (220 mm) turning diameter allow the paddle to provide dependable level indication for average bulk density materials. This paddle can be used with level switches that are mounted vertically or horizontally.
