Temperature sensor for concrete mixers

Mounting a Thermo-Tuff Sensor

In a Bin or Silo

Temperature Sensor in Aggregate Bin

Typical installation for a bin or silo is in the side wall using the Extension Mounting Sleeve and Collar. Installation is simple, a small hole is cut into the bin and the Extension Mounting Collar welded centrally over it. The sensor is then inserted into the Extension Mounting Sleeve and secured. The sleeve is then inserted into the Mounting Collar and fixed using the bolts on the collar.

In a Mixer

The Thermo-Tuff should be installed in the floor of the mixer, with the sensing face flush with the floor. This will prevent build up of any material around the sensor and protect it from damage by the mixer blades. Installation is simple, a small hole is cut into the floor of the mixer and the Standard Mounting Collar welded centrally over it. The sensor is then inserted into the mounting collar and fixed using the bolts on the collar.
