The vegetable oil market has three segments including food, biodiesel and non-food or industrial. While the food oils represent the biggest share of the overall market, the biofuel segment is the fastest growing. From a level perspective, vegetable oil is difficult to measure because it coats and sticks on anything it contacts over time. At this Midwest food processing plant, an EchoSpan ultrasonic level transmitter is used to measure vegetable oil in each of their bulk storage tanks. The EchoSpan is connected to a DataView level controller that provides realtime level indication with high and low level safety shut offs to prevent tank overflows or running their pumps dry.
