Level controls propeller for solids

The SL level controls are employed for the level control in tanks that contain powders or granules. 

The indicator’s working is very simple: a synchronous motor that rotates at low speed activates a propeller placed inside the tank to be controlled.

In lack of material the motor is under voltage and the propeller revolves. 

The presence of material round the propeller bridles the rotation provoking control contacts exchange. 

Electric circuit opening and closing causes the command of an acoustic or visual signal, or the silo’s load, the conveyors and worm conveyors stop etc.


• SL- for the control of the level of powders or granules, in general;

• SL-ATEX for the level control of materials in tanks which, inside (process zone 20) or outside (environment zone 21) a potentially explosive atmosphere, like dust cloud, can be present.

➤ SL - SL-ATEX 24VCC/S with inverter board, uses a synchronous AC motor (brushless) driven by an electronic board, integrated in the housing, which converts the tension from DC to AC. The use of a brushless motor solves the typical problem of DC motors which have a limited lifetime due to the wear on the brushes.

General features:

• Aluminum casting instrument.

• Protection degree IP65.

• The steel shaft is mounted on hermetic seal ball bearings.?

• Plastic propeller (standard), aluminum or steel.

• Threaded hub 1-1/2” inch gas.

• Shaft with propeller is 15, 30, 50 cm long: the part that works inside the tank.

• ATEX type, to use where an atmosphere potentially explosive can be present.
