Overflow protection for biomass bunkers and silos (organic waste incineration)

Biomass is typically stored in silos until it is used as a primary fuel in the burners. In order to prevent the silos from overflowing, level measurement is necessary. The LBV310 vibrating level switch is the ideal choice for monitoring biomass levels due to its rugged construction, amongst other features. The LBV310 operates with no mechanical moving parts, and is immune to deposit formation.
