Product Description

Minicap FTC262 is a simple rope probe for point level detection in bulk solids, particularly suited to applications involving aggressive media and heavy build-up. It is designed for point level detection of light bulk solids, e.g. grain products, flour, milk powder, animal feed, cement, chalk or gypsum.

Fields of application
  • For point level detection of light bulk solids, with a grain size up to max 30mm and a dielectric constant εr ≥ 1.6.
  • Typical applications: Grain products, flour, milk powder, animal feed, cement, chalk or gypsum.
