Global sales of green cleaning products will reach $9 billion by 2017. Eco-conscious initiatives driven by manufacturers, retailers, consumers and legislators have stimulated substantial demand for green products including cleaners. A 2002 EPA study, suggested that up to 42% of all household cleaning products, went down the drain with an unquantifiable lethal effect on the environment. The good news is that the chemical industry has responded with an array of alternative green substitutes to some of the most common acids found in the traditional cleaning products. Here, an EchoSonic ultrasonic level transmitter is installed on a bulk storage tank containing dipropylene glycol mono-methyl ether (DPM). The DPM is blended with several other green chemicals used in household cleaners. The non-contact sensor is connected to their PLC and provides reliable DPM level measurement.
