Cheshire, UK - Trolex, a UK-based manufacturer of gas detectors, air flow sensors, pressure sensors and vibration sensors, has launched a new version of its heavy-duty Flexiprobe multi-purpose limit switch, widely used in the chemical and petrochemical industries.
The Flexiprobe has been built without electronics to increase reliability and ensure low-cost maintenance and has an "almost indestructible hi-flex urethane polymer probe actuator," the company said.
Trolex said the Flexiprobe can be used for position sensing, movement detection, safety interlocks, level detection, conveyor detection and vehicle detection. This means, the company added, that it can be used to detect and monitor material flow along a conveyor belt, belt alignment, water flow, spillage, rope run-out and emergency stop detection. (RD)
