Corrosion Resistant Plating Liquid Level Sensor

When Zimmer of Indiana needed reliable level measurement of their nickel electroplating lines, they turned to Flowline. As a manufacturer of hip and knee replacement joints, the finish quality and tolerances of their plated parts are critical. Their previous float level switches would periodically fail due to corrosion attack, resulting in significant scrap loss. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our non-contact, ultrasonic level sensors that are packaged in corrosion resistant PVDF. Each ultrasonic sensor provides continuous level data to the PLC, which in turn, monitors the bath levels and actuates a valve to systematically refill each bath. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
