When a Bay Area coating manufacturer needed reliable level measurement of their wastewater storage tanks, they turned to Flowline.
The firm produces thermal ceramic and epoxy coatings for high temperature aircraft, automotive and marine engine parts.
Their batch manufacturing process is hot, and their wastewater profile varies based upon the production run. When vapor or foam entered the waste stream, previous ultrasonic level sensors became intermittent due to signal attenuation.
For this reason, Flowline suggested its radar sensors, which are unaffected by vapor or foam, and are ideal for variable processes.
The radar sensors provide reliable level data to the PLC, which monitors the tanks and controls the waste treatment process.
