Monitoring Equipment

Monitoring equipment on your bucket elevator system will ensure any faults or malfunctions are detected early, helping reduce the risk of equipment failure and preventing subsequent downtime.

We provide the complete suite of 4B monitoring equipment to ensure that safety is prioritised, from replacements sensors to fully integrated hazard monitoring systems that can be either stand along or connected to your PLC.



Hazard Monitors

4Bs full range of CSA/ATEX/CE/IECEx/GOST-R approved hazard monitoring systems are all specifically designed for bucket elevators and conveyors in dust hazard environments and we can supply and install all of these.

Monitoring areas

The following areas can all be monitored, and all sensors can be connected to 4B’s hazard monitoring systems to provide alarm and/or shutdown of your machinery when dangerous conditions are detected.

  • Belt Conveyor Monitoring
  • Chain Conveyor Monitoring
  • Bucket Elevator Monitoring
  • Screw Conveyor Monitoring
  • Silo Monitoring

Other safety equipment

The following safety equipment is also available as well as a broad selection of alarms, displays and safety switches.

Bearing Temperature Sensors: overheated bearings are one of the main risk factors for dust explosions in bucket elevators. 4B offers a range of Atex, CSA, IECEx and GOST-R certified bearing temperature sensors and compatible monitoring systems.

Alignment Sensors: sensors and switches for detecting misalignment and motion for bucket elevators, belt conveyors, drag chain conveyors as well as screw conveyors.

Inductive Sensors: detect shaft speed, shaft position, gate position or object presence. No contact is made between the sensor and the target being monitored.

Speed Switches: proximity, inductive, zero speed, stop motion and rotech encoders to monitor dangerous belt slip, under speed or stop conditions. Non-contacting sensors can detect screw conveyor flights, elevator bucket bolts and other moving ferrous targets.

Junction Boxes: allow for easy installation of sensors in potentially explosive dust hazard environments.

Level Indicators: detect high/low levels of bulk granular material in bins, tanks and silos. Our range includes capacitance point level indicators, rotary paddle switches and capacitance proxy level/plug detectors.
