Application

Large quantities of prepared stock are needed to keep a paper mill running continuously. This material is stored in high storage towers. They are characterised by their large material throughput and agitators that ensure the homogeneity of the stock. Inside, the warm stock generates lots of steam and the pumping and stirring processes make the surface very turbulent. Reliable level measurement ensures a continuous supply of stock and prevents the agitator from running dry.

Your benefit

Reliable
Reliable measurement despite steam and changing stock temperatures and densities
Cost effective
Optimal utilization of the container volume
User friendly
Simple installation and setup
