Capacitive point level sensors are used in homgenous liquids and bulk solids in tanks and pipes that provide stable electrical measuring conditions. They are used for overfill protection, dry run protections, oil/water detection and foam detection.
Radiation-based sensors enable precise measurement of liquids and bulk solids under extreme process conditions such as high temperatures, pressures and aggressive materials. They can be installed on the outside of process vessels during ongoing production, without disturbing the process in any way.
The microwave barriers of the radar point level sensors are suitable for non-contact point level detection of liquids and bulk solids of any kind, including detection of high purity liquids through container walls. When it comes to bulk solids, the microwave barrier lends itself well for heavy and dust-generating media or for backup detection on conveyor belts.
Vibrating point level sensors are used for overfill and dry run protection in liquids. They are also suitable for safety-related applications up to SIL2. Special materials and coated versions also allow their use in agressive materials.
