Grain Hopper Level Controlled by Series PLS Paddle Level Switch
The supply of grain pneumatically conveyed to this dispensing hopper is controlled by two Series PLS paddle level switches. When the grain level falls to the low limit switch, the supply is turned on until the hopper fills to the level of the high limit switch which turns off the supply. Since grain dust is explosive, the explosion-proof Series PLS provides the required safety protection. The PLS is a paddle level switch and is not affected by the varying pressure in the hopper due to the cycling of the pneumatic conveying system.
