Liquid waste buffer tank

Level measurement and point level detection in buffer tanks for liquid waste

Level measurement and point level detection in buffer tanks for liquid waste

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement and point level detection
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
8 m
Acids and alkalis
Process temperature:
+10 … +30 °C
Process pressure:
0 … +16 bar
Special challenges:
Frequently changing media, media with different dielectric constants


In preparation for proper disposal, liquid wastes that arise in the production of pharmaceuticals are temporarily stored in buffer tanks. These potentially hazardous mixtures consist of diverse media with very different properties including dielectric conductivity (dielectric constant) and density. For optimal storage, reliable and accurate level measurement is required. Point level detection ensures overfill and dry run protection.
