Food Wastewater Sump Liquid Level Measurement


When a Northern California food manufacturer needed reliable level measurement of their waste sumps, they turned to Flowline. Each of their waste streams contains particulates, powders, chemicals and steam from their clean in place process. All of which, was causing their float level switches to fail, as they would often become stuck in the high level condition. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our non-contact pulse radar sensors which are unaffected by steam or the contents of the application media. The pulse radar sensor provides continuous level data to the PLC, which in turn, controls the pumps and transfers the waste into treatment. The rugged sensor is constructed of 316L with an aluminum windowed enclosure for harsh environments. EchoPulse is reliable waste sump level measurement.
