Wastewater Pump Station Liquid Level Sensor


Pump-Lift-StationWhen a New Jersey food ingredient manufacturer needed reliable level measurement of their wastewater pump lift stations, they turned to Flowline. Sumps are liquid trash receptacles that receive, hold and ultimately transfer their contents into waste treatment. These are challenging, difficult applications with variables as diverse as the contents or weather. The facility had used submersible pressure sensors with poor results during the hot, humid months of summer. The increased condensation was clogging the sensor breather tubes and causing erratic measurement. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our pulse radar sensors that are unaffected by condensation or any other waste variable. The pulse radar sensor is bracket mounted to the sump top and provides continuous level data to the PLC, which in turn, controls the submersible pump. The push button display module is wall mounted next to the sump for local indication. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
