Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0223139A1] The invention relates to a filling level measuring device which is used to measure the level of a filling material in a container (1) and a probe (17) is provided, which protrudes inside said container. The filling level measuring device can be mounted and dismounted without the probe (17) needing to be moved in the container (1). The inventive device comprises a housing (11) consisting of a first section (13), and a second section (21), said sections (13, 21) respectively comprising a central axial bore (27) whereby the first section (13) has an interior diameter which is smaller than that of the second section (21); a securing device (14) provided on the housing (11) for securing the filling level measuring device (3) onto the container (1); an insert (23) disposed in the housing (11) in such a way so that it can pivot in relation to said housing (11), said insert being placed on a surface (25) between the first and the second sections (13,21); a probe (17) protruding into the container (1); and a connecting element which connects the insert (23) and the sensor (17) along a prolongation of a longitudinal axis of the probe (17).
