Soap Foaming Agent Liquid Level Sensor

When a North Carolina manufacturer of hand cleansers and de-sanitizers needed reliable level measurement of their chemical storage tanks, they turned to Flowline. A critical ingredient is sodium laureth sulfate, a highly effective foaming agent that’s used in most of their products. But this is a challenging liquid to measure, that’s sticky with a very low dielectric value, that foams up during tank filling. For these reasons, Flowline suggested our radar level sensors that are unaffected by foam, installed in a metal stand-pipe to strengthen the RF signal and reflectivity off the surface of the low dielectric media. The radar sensor provides continuous level data to the PLC, which monitors the tank inventories and alarms for replenishment. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
