Magnetostrictive Sensors For Bottle Filling

These level sensors combine magnetostrictive sensors with Temposonics technology and a sanitary pipe assembly with a tri-clamp flange that have been certified as 3-A compliant, making them work for bottle-filling processes.

The sensing element is enclosed in the sanitary pipe and does not come in direct contact with the liquid and will not be affected by the foam, vapor, or spray in the filling bowl. The sensors have a nonlinearity of 0.02% and a repeatability of 0.001%, are available in digital and analog formats, have a gauge order length of 500 mm to 2,540 mm, and have an output of 4 to 20 mA with HART and Modbus.
