Binmaster BM-25 Diaphragm Level Switch

The BM-25 Diaphram Level Switch from Binmaster, based in Lincoln, Nebraska, is designed to save operators time and increase efficiency by monitoring bin levels. The BM-25 indicates when materials levels are too low or too high, thus “taking the guesswork out of material management,” the company says. Its features include:

  • a pressure-sensitive micro switch that indicates when material reaches a certain level
  • a silicone diaphragm paired with a nylon housing that is designed to protect the switch from damage from materials, increasing the product’s durability
  • the ability to be wired to a horn, light or alarm panel to alert operators when levels are too low or high
  • the ability to detect clogs in chutes and conveyors, minimizing downtime for operators
