Pork Plant Disinfection Tank Radar Level Measurement

Pork Plant Disinfection Tank Radar Level Sensor

Pork Plant Disinfection Tank Radar Level Transmitter

When an Arkansas pork processor needed reliable level measurement of their chlorine storage tanks, they turned to Flowline. Every 72 hours, the plant stops processing to clean and disinfect their work surfaces and equipment. In so, peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide are sprayed on and brushed in cleaning, and then chlorine dioxide is sprayed on for disinfection and rinsed with a pressure washer. The operator said they’ve had level problems in the chlorine tank with ultrasonic sensors due to vapor and pressure sensors due corrosion, and both had led to chemical shortages and costly downtime. For these reasons, Flowline suggested our radar sensors that are unaffected by chlorine vapor with a PFA antenna for strong corrosion resistance. The radar sensors provide reliable level data to the PLC that monitors the tanks and alarms for reorder. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
