Heavy Duty Back Spillage Detector

A transducer system comprising identical units mounted on each side of your conveyor at a potential spillage point, the detector features paddles aligned with the conveyor belt edges. Any spillage over either side at this point will depress the paddle, triggering the rotary switch within the unit.

You can also specify a time delay function as an option. This will prevent the conveyor from being tripped if the paddle is depressed momentarily by passing material.

The Heavy Duty Back Spillage Detector is designed to prevent spillage of conveyed mineral around transfer points and chutes. The complete transducer comprises of two similar units, one mounted on each side of the conveyor at a point where spillage is likely to occur. The unit is designed to be mounted such that the centre line of the paddle is in line with the edge of the conveyor belt. When the paddle is depressed due to spillage of material, a rotary switch operates within the unit.

As an option a time delay function can be provided which prevents the conveyor from being tripped if the paddle is depressed momentarily by a lump of material dropping off the conveyor.

Switch Rating
The Heavy Duty Spillage Detector is fitted with a rotary switch equipped with one normally open and one normally closed contact.

The contact ratings are as follows:
16 Amps 250 volts ac 3 kw
1 Amp 125 volts dc

Cable entries
The unit is supplied with one CM 20 20mm cable gland and one 20mm tapped blanked off entry.

The Heavy Duty Back Spillage unit is deemed intrinsically safe to the ATEX standard EN 60079-11:2012 Explosive Atmospheres-Part 11:Equipment protection by intrinsic safety ”i” section 5.7 ‘Simple Apparatus’. The switch contacts can be used to switch an intrinsically safe circuit with the following characteristics:
Ui max = 50 volts; Ii max = 100mA
