  • Minicap FTC262 is a simple and cost-effective rope probe for point level detection in bulk solids, particularly suited to applications involving aggressive media and heavy build-up. It is designed for point level detection of light bulk solids, e.g. grain products, flour, milk powder, animal feed, cement, chalk or gypsum

    • Simple mounting and commissioning without calibration
    • Mechanical safety, cost-efficiency and long operating life due to no wearing parts
    • High operational safety and reliability due to active build-up compensation
    • Optimized storage by simply shortening the rope probe on site

    For point level detection of light bulk solids, with a grain size up to max. 30mm and a dielectric constant εr ≥ 1.6. 
    Typical applications: Grain products, flour, milk powder, animal feed, cement, chalk or gypsum.
