This new SmartBob features horizontal mounting

| By Chemical Engineering

The SmartBob HM (horizontal mount) is a weight-and-cable-based level sensor that can be mounted on the side of a bin, tank or silo. The SmartBob HM features a rigid extension to install on the side of the bin. Precise level mebinmaster wordcloudasurements are taken at pre-determined time intervals at a location directly below the probe to continuously monitor the inventory of material inside of the bin. The device’s continuous level sensor works like an automated tape measure, but eliminates the need to climb bins for manual measurements. It is listed for Class II, Groups E, F, & G and enclosure types NEMA 4X, 5 and 12, ensuring the sensor is safe to use in locations where combustible dust may be present. — BinMaster, Lincoln, Neb.
