Highly Vaporous Chemical Liquid Level Sensor


Formalin-and-DKP-Level-MeasurementWhen a Midwest agriculture chemical distributor needed reliable level measurement of their DKP and formalin bulk storage tanks, they turned to Flowline. A long time user of Flowline ultrasonics, the company blends and distributes fertilizers. But unlike their other chemicals, DKP and formalin are highly vaporous, and hence, not an application for ultrasonic due to acoustic signal absorption. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our pulse radar sensors that are unaffected by vaporous media. The pulse radar sensor is riser mounted to the fiberglass tank top and provides continuous level data to the PLC, which in turn, performs inventory monitoring and alarm actuation. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
