Continuous Level Measuring System provides 100 ft range.

Press Release Summary:

Designed for continuous measurement of powder and bulk materials in silos, tanks, or hoppers, Series DBOB utilizes internal motor that drives weight suspended by firm stainless steel tape down to bulk material level. Upon reaching material, unit reverses and weight is drawn back into upper stop position. Distance weight descends is electronically measured based on internal rotations of unwinding tape. User-programmable to output height or volumetric signal, device measures at rate of 0.6 fps.

Original Press Release:

NEW Series DBOB Continuous Level Measuring System

Proximity Division of Dwyer Instruments, Inc., the preferred source for your complete range of practical and affordable instrumentation, is announcing the release of its NEW SERIES DBOB CONTINUOUS LEVEL MEASURING SYSTEM.

The Series DBOB is a low maintenance, electromechanical device designed for the continuous measurement of level or volumes in silos, tanks, or hoppers. The DBOB utilizes an internal motor that drives a weight suspended by a firm stainless steel tape down to the bulk material level. Upon reaching the material, the unit reverses and the weight is drawn back into the upper stop position. The distance the weight descends is electronically measured based on the internal rotations of the unwinding tape. The DBOB is user-programmable to output either a height signal or a volumetric signal based on the vessel geometry. The unit's two programmable relays offer even more customization.

The 1-1/2" NPT process connection allows for simple installation on horizontal surfaces and an optional aiming flange is available for inclines. The integrated tape cleaner keeps the internal process protected from difficult material and the tough cast housing protects the unit from its surroundings. With an easy to understand measurement principle and inherent low maintenance qualities, the Series DBOB is perfect for your level measuring needs.
