Agriculture Chemical Distributor Liquid Level Transmitter

When a California fertilizer and pesticide distributor needed reliable level measurement of their storage tanks, they turned to Flowline. The firm blends and delivers crop nutrition and protection chemicals to hundreds of farmers throughout the Central Valley. Their automated production facility outputs orders for truck fulfillment in bulk, IBC, drum or pale size deliveries. The operators experienced intermittent measurement from ultrasonic level sensors on their tall 40′ bulk tanks due to vapor, and its attenuating effect on acoustic signals. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of pulse radar sensors that are not impacted by vapor or foam. The radar sensors provide continuous level data to the PLC, which in turn, monitors the tanks and controls the filling, emptying and alarms. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
