Level measurement in the beer tank

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
5 m
Process temperature:
+3 … +120 °C
Process pressure:
0 … +5 bar
Special challenges:
Humid environment, foaming


During the brewing process, a thick layer of foam is always present in the beer tanks. Therefore usually two pressure transmitters are used for level measurement. One transmitter measures the head pressure, while the other at the bottom measures the total pressure. The level is precisely calculated from the differential between these two pressures. Hygienic process fittings are absolutely necessary for these sensors.
