Whether it's continuous fill level measurement, limit value detection or both combined: Balluff offers a wide range of solutions for process control, storage or protection. Depending on the installation situation, media properties and environmental conditions, we offer optimum sensors that only have one goal: Efficient processes.
You can choose between contact-free or with contact. Balluff sensor technology can also be used to measure the fill levels of liquid, paste-like and granular media through tank walls. Our sensors also satisfy the strict regulations of the food and pharmaceutical industries as well as medical technology.
Balluff BUS ultrasonic sensors are perfect for monitoring stack heights on conveyor belts as well as fill levels in silos. Under the harsh conditions of the steel mill, they detect objects made of many materials. This means that they guarantee that the blast furnaces are always reliably charged, even if there is dust and dirt caused by charges and coke.
For the detection of fluids, the level control is directly integrated into pipetting robots. Our BOH MICROmote sensors save space, and impress with their high accuracy.
The blood level in an oxygenator is monitored in two stages using a reference and minimum value. Our BCS capacitive sensor indicates when the blood level drops below the minimum value. It is attached using adhesive tape that has been applied to the blood reservoir. This allows it to be reused multiple times. It's position can be selected freely. Deposits are disregarded thanks to Smart Level technology. This makes it so that the actual blood level is monitored and the doctor can keep it at the right level.
Dry granulate is essential for high-quality plastic parts. Our capacitive stainless steel sensors resistant to high temperatures ensure an even feed of the moist granulate into the dryer. They are heat resistant to 250 °C and reliably monitor all levels.
The beverage industry uses stretch blow moulding machines to produce bottles. If the bottles are filled immediately afterward, our high-precision SF fill level sensor controls the fill level during the process. On-site filling can save you transport distances and thereby minimise costs.
Our BCS capacitive sensors detect fill levels of acids, bases or ultrapure water without contact directly at bypass pipes. Balluff Smart Level technology compensates for moisture, foam and deposits of all kinds as they work. The sensors can be installed quickly and easily with cable ties. This saves installation work and costs.
In your tanks, our BCS capacitive sensors detect highly conductive process fluids such as acids, bases and ultrapure water. The Smart Level sensors compensate for moisture, foam and deposits of all kinds as they work.
Optimum fill levels should always prevail in the expansion tanks of the cooling system and of the gearbox and hydraulic system. Our BCS capacitive sensors detect the maximum and minimum fill levels without direct contact – through the container wall or with the help of adapters. They are installed in the oil pan as a leak sensor and reliably report an oil loss there.
