AUTOMATION PRODUCTS INC. Dynatrol® level detectors can operate as high-, mid-, and low-level indicators for foundry molding sands, green sand, reclaimed sand, or other bulk solid materials, ranging from low-density flakes and powders to pellets and heavy granular materials. 

These durable level detectors contain no moving parts, gaskets, or seals. The rugged design and vibrating probe prevents build-up and ensures the most reliable level measurement. 

Mechanical oscillations determine if the probe is covered or uncovered.  Signals from the detector operate a single pole, double throw relay within the control unit.  The relay contacts can be used to actuate alarms, indicator lights, or process control equipment. 

Our level detectors are calibrated at the factory and do not require any field calibration before installation. 

Dynatrol® level detectors work well in dusty environments and specialized units can be used with temperatures in excess of 500°F. They are constructed for a long operating life, including many systems that have been in reliable service for up to 30 years. Learn more at
