Different mounting sleeves are available for installation in different width bins and silos.
Flange Mounting Sleeve
For vertical installations
For mounting the Hydro-Probe
Replaceable Ceramic Kit
Hydro-Mix digital sensors have been designed with replaceable ceramics for cases of extreme wear or breakage
Adjustable Clamp Ring for mounting the Hydro-Mix.
Note: these are supplied with all new sensors.
The Hydro-Skid is a mounting device designed to enable a Hydro-Mix moisture sensor to ride over the surface of flowing material on a belt conveyor. Measurements are then taken by the sensor as the material passes underneath.
The Hydro-Probe Orbiter has been designed to have easily replaceable arms. These come in 560mm, 700, 1200mm and 1520mm lengths (measurement from top of head unit to bottom of arm)
