Adhesive IBC Tote Non-Invasive Radar Level Transmitter

Adhesive IBC Tote Radar Level Measurement

Adhesive IBC Tote Radar Level Transmitter

When a Northeast envelope manufacturer needed reliable level measurement of their adhesive feed tanks, they turned to Flowline. Each machine is fed glue through an IBC tote. Some totes are plumbed in and refilled by a bulk tank and others are forklift rotated where unique adhesives are required. The operator wanted a single non-contact level sensor that reliably measures foaming adhesive and that can be quickly installed or removed during forklift rotation. For these reasons, Flowline suggested our 80-GHz radar sensors mounted in our non-invasive fitting that can be adhered to or simply placed on the tank top for removal during IBC swaps. In either respect, the sensor measures non-invasively through the plastic tank top wall. Reliable, simple, flexible and maintenance-free. The radar sensors provide reliable level data to the PLC, which monitors the totes, controls their refill or alarms for rotation. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
