Application

Many different ointments and creams are produced in batching tanks. The process conditions in batch production are typically characterized by high temperatures and vacuum. After each batch run, the tank needs to be cleaned quickly and effectively with chemically aggressive cleaning agents ready for the next batch. Contamination of the products during the mixing or reaction process is prevented by the use of a protective gas atmosphere. To ensure a safe, reliable process, both the level and the gas head pressure must be continuously monitored.
