Application

Biogas plants convert a mixture of organic waste and renewable raw materials into valuable energy through fermentation using a largely CO2 neutral process. Optimal consumption of the resources and maintenance-free operation require the use of highly reliable measurement technology. In all production steps – from the delivery of raw materials and waste to the removal of residues – the levels must be closely and accurately monitored.

Your benefit

Reliable
Trouble-free operation of the fermenter with technology
Cost effective
Long service life ensured through non-contact measuring method
User friendly
Easy installation and retrofit, through external vessel mounting
