The Drexelbrook Plugged Chute Detector reliably detects the presence or absence of material flowing through chutes. If process material stops flowing due to a plugged condition, the flush mounted capacitance sensing element will alarm, allowing further action to occur (alerting an operator, shutting down a conveyor belt, etc.).
Plugged Chute Detector
The Drexelbrook plugged chute detector, also known as a blocked chute switch, reliably detects the presence or absence of bulk solids material flowing through chutes in an economical way without sacrificing flow speed.
Due to the rugged sensor design this point level switch is ideal for coal, wood chips, ores and powders. As it is flush mounted through a chute wall, nothing protrudes into the chute to interfere with or obstruct material flow.
This point level switch automatically recognizes and ignores coatings preventing false alarms. The universal power supply detects and adjusts to the input power source.
The point level switch for plugged chute detection allows electronics to be remote mounted to a convenient or safe location.
The reliable detection of plugged chutes will keep the production running smoothly and virtually eliminates spills occuring due to plugged conditions.
