Shipyard Wastewater Sump Radar Liquid Level Transmitter

When a defense shipyard needed reliable level measurement of their wastewater lift stations, they turned to Flowline. The company services US navy frigate or coast guard ships providing maintenance and equipment upgrades. Their sumps receive all types of waste including diesel, paint, grease, oil, particulates, debris and corrosive saltwater. The operator said, “Pressure sensors corrode, float switches coat and ultrasonic sensors don’t perform when it foams up. Do you have anything that just works?” For these reasons, Flowline suggested our 80-GHz radar sensors that are unaffected by the media, easy to install and maintenance-free. The radar sensors provide reliable level data to the PLC, which monitors the sumps and controls the pump transfer to treatment. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
