SafePoint Failsafe Rotary Switch

Safe silo-overfill protection

The Challenge:

Cement silo filling at a major readymixed concrete producer was causing concern. The serious consequences of silo overfill and subsequent safety hazards to protect the environment were a major issue. Traditional level switches required silo roof visits for testing, creating additional risks for staff.

Our Solution:

Monitor SafePoint

Key Features:

Failsafe operation


Client decided to replace all traditional level switches with SafePoint in 2008. As a result, no overfills have occurred and safer operator procedures have been introduced.


Client feedback

“We wanted to reduce the need to visit the silo roof without compromising the risk of overfill. SafePoint has allowed us to achieve both.”
