Wastewater Storage Tank Radar Level Measurement

Wastewater Storage Tank Radar Level Transmitter

Wastewater Storage Tank Radar Level Sensor

When a Mississippi food processing company needed reliable level measurement of their bulk wastewater storage tanks, they turned to Flowline. The firm processes vegetable products for private label customers that they wash, cut, package and ship to restaurants and grocery stores throughout the state. Upon receipt, the vegetables are soaked in disinfectant baths and thoroughly spray washed to remove any pollutants. The resulting wastewater is collected and pumped into three storage tanks awaiting monthly pick up and disposal via railcar. The operator complained that the waste stream often foams as it enters the tanks, which caused the previous ultrasonic level sensors to measure intermittently during and after pump transfer. For this reason, Flowline suggested our radar sensors that are unaffected by process variables like foam. The radar sensors provide reliable level data to the PLC, which monitors the tanks and controls the pumps. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
