Monitoring Wood Dust/Shavings in Dust Collection System

Many processes of bulk solid materials require dust collection to keep production areas safe and clean as well as to reclaim material.  Dust collection systems are commonly used in these situations.  In a wood working system a dust collection system was manufactured using a 55 gallon drum as the collector.  To keep the drum from overfilling and to prevent the dust from backing up into the system, a compact rotary paddle bin level indicator has been successfully used.
