Level Indicators

Filquip has been providing Hopper and Silo Systems Equipment including Level Sensors and Level Indicators for over 18 years for all types of powders and granular materials.


TOREX ILT Level IndicatorsILT Level Indicators
Cheap level indicator with rotation control

Filquip supplies the Torex ILT series rotating paddle Level Indicators to provide feedback on the minimum or maximum material level inside a bin, hopper or silo. The are a very cost effective level sensing solution which is easy to install.

When the material level reaches the measuring paddle its rotation is blocked and the Level Indicator produces a signal. As soon as the material level sinks below the paddle radius, rotation restarts and a signal is produced. Top or side-mounted indicators are commonly used for powdery and granular materials.

  • Model ILTD for 24VDC.
  • Model ILTCO for 240VAC.
  • Model ILTA for 24VAC.
  • The top model ILTRO are multi voltage level indicators with Rotation control.
  • Available with extension kits to suit any silo or hopper high or low level requirements (Standard 300, 600, 800, 1000mm).
  • IP66 enclosure protection available.
  • All contact parts are in Stainless Steel.
  • High and Low Temperature Options available.
  • Available in ATEX certified.

TOREX ILV Vibrating Level Indicators

The Torex ILV vibrating Level Indicators provide feedback on the minimum or maximum material level inside a bin, hopper or silo.

ILV model Bin Level Indicators are designed for electric signal output based on the feedback from the  fork vibration to determine minimum or maximum material level inside bins, hoppers or silos.

  • Multi Voltage Design.
  • All material contact parts in Stainless Steel.
  • High and Low Temperature Options available.
  • Available in ATEX certified Zone 20 and Zone 21.
  • Extendable up to 4m in length for ILVB Model.
  • Extendable up to 20m in length for ILVC Model.

TOREX ILS Level SensorsLevel Sensor
Continuous Level Indicators

The Torex ILS Continuous Level Measurement Sensor has been designed for level monitoring of all kinds of powder and granular materials in Silos.

The calibrated weight which is constantly monitoring the silo moves as controlled by the ILS microprocessor down into the container. Upon reaching the bulk material it is pulled back to its upper stop position. By capturing the distance that the calibrated weight has moved the material level is measured.

  • Output as 0 – 20 mA or 4-20mA Outputs.
  • IP65 Protection Die Cast Casing.
  • Available with internal cleaner for particularly difficult materials.
  • Multi-voltage output signals available.
  • Available in ATEX certified Zone 20 and Zone 21.
  • Accurate level measurement even in the presence of dust, di0electricity of bulk material, changes in material bulk density or sticky materials.

TOREX IP Pressure SensorTorex IPE Silo Pressure Sensor

Filquip is proud to supply the TOREX IPE Electronic Pressure Meter & IPM Mechanical Pressure Meter for monitoring of the pressure inside bins or silos during their filling and the purging of tankers.

THE IPE Model Pressure Sensor operated by means of an electronic reading device which is activated by a membrane, the IPE-type Electronic Pressure Meter supervises the pressure rising inside bins or silos during filling and purging of the tanker.

The IPM Model Pressure Switch operates from a  membrane switch which signals excess pressure inside bins or silos during filling or purging of the tanker. It can also be used as a level indicator in hoppers.

  • The pressure sensor membrane is self-cleaning and temperature resistant.
  • The casing is aluminium alloy with IP55 protection rating.
  • Available with 4-20 mA output signal configurations for IPE.
  • 24VDC supply voltage.
  • Operating temperature from -30 Deg C to + 80 Deg C.
  • Pre-set activating pressure from 0.02 – 0.04 Bar (0.3 to 0.6 PSI)
  • IPX mounting spigot available for simple installation onto any silo.

Silo Filling protection systemSilo Overfill Protection System

Filquip can supply a tailored silo overfill protection system to suit any system, to prevent dangerous over pressurisation and over filling, while eliminating dust emissions.

  • Avoid damage to silo and accessories.
  • Reduce the risk of air pollutions.
  • Eliminate the risk of filling the incorrect silo.
  • Start and stop the filter cleaner automatically.
  • Systems can be tailored to suit applications including the need for Pressure monitoring, Over pressure or vacuum release valves, Fill control, Dust control and Operator destination selection panel.
