Industry recognized leading expert in level measurement and detection, Joe Lewis, spoke out recently in the December 2015 issue of Powder Bulk Solids magazine about a topic in bulk solids instrumentation. Mr. Lewis spoke of whether safety is the preeminent feature of design regarding level sensing instrumentation in powder bulk solids processing, storage and handling. See what he has to say right here. Industry Insights Safety First – Powder Bulk Solids Magazine 2015
Aplus Finetek Sensor, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of its newest product line, the SP Series Thermal Dispersion Flow Switch for use in monitoring flow/No-flow conditions of liquids in pipes and other conduits with absolutely no moving parts for a longer life and enhanced reliability.
Aplus Finetek Sensor, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of its latest new product, the FC/FD series of magnetic liquid level switch. The FC/FD series liquid level switch uses the principles of buoyancy and magnetism to provide a rugged and cost effective switch. From one to four switch points can be provided with a single FC/FD series unit, requiring only one penetration into the tank, a very cost effective solution for pump control, multipoint process control and many other applications.
Aplus Finetek Sensor, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of its new technician friendly feature, the cover-chain, as a part of its unique SRP series rotary paddle bin level indicator. Have you ever installed a bin level indicator high up on the side of a silo or on the top of a grain dryer or bin? You take the cover off, but what do you do with it to make sure you don’t drop it to the ground?
Aplus Finetek Sensor, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of its latest new product, the SCL series capacitance point level switch. The SCL series level switch eliminates the problems associated with many rotary paddle style bin level indicators, which fail because of moving parts, by using solidstate capacitance sensing technology to detect the presence or absence of a wide range of materials including dry and freely flowing powders and granular materials as well as liquids. Using state-of-the-art capacitance sensing techniques most applications require no calibration adjustments, but if needed this can easily be accomplished.
Aplus Finetek Sensor, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of its latest product line, the SC series vibrating tuning fork liquid level switch and point level sensor for liquids. The SC series uses state-of-the-art piezoelectric crystal and electronic technology to design and manufacture a point level sensor that does not require any calibration, unlike capacitance proximity sensors, capacitance and RF admittance liquid level switches and point level sensors.

Aplus Finetek Sensor, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of its broad line of BRD/BDV dust collector valves and the AE series of sequential controllers for use in dust collectors and baghouses. The BRD/BDV dust collector valves and AE series of controller products economically assist in improving the maintenance, safety and efficient operation of dust collectors.
The B series from Aplus Finetek Sensor, Inc. is a line of pneumatic vibrators. Consisting of pneumatic piston and rotary styles, the B series pneumatic vibrators are cost-effective and reliable industrial devices for assisting the discharge of bulk solid materials from bins, hoppers and silos.
Aplus Finetek is pleased to announce the availability of its newest EG series magnetostrictive level transmitter, the EG31, that is used to precisely measure coolant level in an evaporator within an industrial air or water cooled chiller system. Accurate reservoir level control is important in a chiller system for precise control of refrigerant flow through the chiller system expansion valve. The EG31 magnetostrictive level transmitter also includes a customized installation mechanism that allows the level transmitter to be installed or removed without taking the chiller system out of service. The EG31 level transmitter is currently used by a global leader in the manufacture of large scale industrial chiller system type items.
The EST series is a grain temperature monitoring system for use in monitoring grain quality in storage through multiple point temperature measurement within each grain bin. The product line consists of two types of sensor cables, the EST110 grain temperature monitoring cable and the EST120 temperature/level monitoring cables. Each use state-of-the-art sensing technology to minimize installation costs and maximize performance and value. Readout via PC-software and a future wall mounted graphic display/keypad interface.
