RN 3001 in marble dust

The Challenge

Our customer is the leading company in Russian Federation for extraction and processing of white marble. As a byproduct the company has a marble dust. Marble dust has various uses for example in the building industrie. Dust is captured by aspiration systems and fed by pneumatic transport to the storage silos. The customer requested fulldetection in the marble dust filled silos.

Our Solution

The solution in this Silo Max application is a rotation paddle switch RN 3001, which is installed laterally in the silo. The sensor is dustproof, has a sturdy housing and is the right choice in this application due to its longevity. Buildup, dust and changing extreme temperatures are no problem for this sensor and do not affect the function. Thus, overfilling of the silo is ensured.
