Mining Industry

Wet Screens, Transfer chutes, Crushers, Apron feeders


Application Conditions: Water and magnetite spray, fine coal build up, high dielectric build up

Level Technology Choice: Gladiator Acoustic Switch – totally failsafe. For a switch technology to work in this environment it needs to be self cleaning and not affected by a high dielectric moist service conditions. As the acoustic transducers pulse a pressure wave is developed that removes buildup and moisture from the face of the operating diaphragms. We size the acoustic transducer to the degree of difficulty for the service in the chute. Maximum range is 65 meters.
