The level measurement is carried out over the entire tank height without a blocking distance, i.e. dead band, which is common with ultrasonic sensors. Due to this, the sensor measures with high accuracy at the top as well as at the bottom of the tank. The tank volume can thus be used to the full. And for Socado, it was also very important that the sensor doesn’t require maintenance.
The new level sensor is also ideal from a hygienic point of view. For one thing, radar level transmitters lend themselves well for such applications, because they employ contactless measurement, thus ensuring optimal hygienic conditions. And for another, the front-flush, encapsulated antenna is easy to clean and resistant to the extreme conditions of SIP and CIP processes.
