Process vessel level and pressure measurement and point level detection

Process data

Measuring task:
Level and pressure measurement, point level detection
Measuring point:
Tank
Measuring range up to:
5 m
Medium:
Acids and alkalis

Special challenges:
Aggressive media with different measurement properties

Application

To ensure the best possible fermentation of the ingeredients, optimal process conditions must prevail, control of pH value and temperature of the medium play important roles. The pH is adjusted by adding acids or alkalis, and sodium hydroxide is used to clean the vessel under absolute sanitary conditions. The levels of the process vessels have to be monitored at all times, to ensure continuous operation of the system. The measured media place very high demands on the chemical resistance of the sensors. To be totally reliable, the instruments need to be equally resistant to both acids and alkalis.

Your benefit

Reliable
Reliable long term performance and operation of the process vessels through reliable level measurement
Cost effective
High-resistance materials for long term measurement in all media
User friendly
No adjustment required for changing media
