Choosing the right paddle for your rotary paddle level sensor
The rotary paddle level sensor is popular in bulk solids storage equipment for its straightforward design, low cost, and versatility in sensing a wide range of materials. This article explains how to choose one with the right paddle type for your material's characteristics and your installation location.
The rotary paddle level sensor (also known as a rotary paddle level switch, rotary paddle point (or bin) level indicator, or paddlewheel level indicator) indicates a material's presence or absence in a vessel at a high, intermediate, or low point. Common applications include maintaining a predetermined material level in a vessel, preventing vessel overflow, and signaling a low (or material-reorder) level in a vessel.
