BinMaster Level Controls announces the 3DLevelScanner has received FM approval to Canadian standards (cFMus), which allows installation of the 3DLevelScanner in potentially explosive environments. The 3DLevelScanner is listed for FM Approval to Class I, II Division 1, Groups C, D, E, F, and G. It meets Canadian standards CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 25 (1966), CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 157 (1992), CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 1010 (2004), and CAN/CSA E61241-1-1 (2002). These new approvals enable customers in Canada who require hazardous location approvals to safely install the 3DLevelScanner in their facilities.
The 3DLevelScanner measures and maps multiple points in the bin, calculates a highly accurate volume estimate, and has the ability to visually map the topography of the bin material. “Many of the bin volume measurement challenges addressed by the 3DLevelScanner are for powders and bulk solids in volatile environments,” stated Todd Peterson, vice president of sales for BinMaster. “There was a market need to certify to Canadian safety standards to address the demands of customers in the grain, milling, mining, power, ethanol, chemical, and food processing industries where often a purchasing condition is a device approved to Canadian standards.”
