Solitel® Vibrating Rod Level Switches provide reliable level detection of powders and bulk solids with densities of less than one pound per cubic foot. This compact, integral switch is suitable for high or low level detection in hoppers or silos.

Operating Principle
The SOLITEL probe vibrates at 350 Hz. When in contact with the media, the vibration is dampened. The attenuation of the vibration is detected by the electronics, which changes the state of the relay.


Plastic powders and pellets
Wood chips and sawdust
Pulverized coal
Fly ash
Cement, lime
Aerosil® (fume silica)


Single rod design eliminates clogging
High temperature version up to +320° F (+160° C)
Self-clean cycle and polished probe minimize solids buildup
Class I, Div. 2 and Class II, Div. 1 approval
Adjustable sensitivity allows easy calibration for various bulk densities
