BinMaster\noffers a tilt switch used for high level\ndetection of powders and bulk solids. The BM-TSM tilt switch mounts on the\ntop of the bin and activates an alarm when material rises and tilts the\nswitching mechanism 15 degrees. The shaft of the tilt switch is custom-made in\nlengths from one foot up to eight feet in length, dependent upon the distance\nfrom the top of the bin an alert should be activated. The BM-TSM is available\nwith either a paddle or sphere mounted at the end of the shaft and can be used\nin materials with a bulk density of at least 15 pounds per cubic foot.", "The tilt switch can be used as an alternative to a top-mounted rotary level\nindicator and is suitable for a wide range of solid materials in most any\nindustry, according to the company. The mechanical design operates in a\nwide range of temperatures and can withstand the harshness of\ngranules and lump solid materials. The protective boot protects the tilt\nmechanism and ensures long operational life. The BM-TSM is installed through a 1-1/4' NPT process connection on the roof of the bin and sends an\nalert status to a horn, light or control panel.
