New switch detects viscous or dry material levels
Published: 30 April 2012 - Rachael Morling
Baumer has announced an alternative to vibratory level switches – the new LBFS level switch – which operates on the frequency sweep principle. The sensor, which fits onto tanks or pipes in any desired position, can detect levels of viscous or dry materials and is insensitive to flow, turbulence, bubbles or foaming, and suspended solids. The manufacturer claims that the sensor head resists media adhesion, even with sticky media and provides a short response time, enabling rapid fill level detection and fill level compliance.
The level switch, which is housed in stainless steel, is also suitable for overflow prevention, pump protection against dry running and media separation with oil/water mixtures. It can be used within applications that include domestic water; wastewater; HVAC filters; hydraulic systems; oil and gas; bio-energy; wood pellets; grain mills; rail transport and pump systems. It has an operating temperature range of -40°C to +115°C.
