Thickener for sugar beet juice

Level measurement in a thickener

Level measurement in a thickener

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement
Measuring point:
Tank with heating coils
Measuring range up to:
10 m
Sugar beet juice
Process temperature:
+20 … +135 °C
Process pressure:
0 … +6 bar
Special challenges:
Heating coils, condensate, high temperatures, vacuum, steam


The thin juice extracted from sugar beet is thickened by the reduction of excess water in multiple stages at the evaporator station. This evaporation process is carried out under vacuum and heat. The liquid in the evaporator boils so violently that great amounts of vapour are formed. A level sensor is needed to monitor and control the thickening process.

Your benefit

Accurate, reliable measurement, even under adverse vacuum and condensation conditions
Cost effective
Reliable measured values allow efficient control of the evaporation process
User friendly
Narrow beam angle allows easier installation in vessel top
