Proven solutions for fill level detection
Whether in the pharmaceutical, food and drinks industries, in semiconductor technology or in wind turbines, sensors and systems from Balluff are used for fill level detection, demonstrating their versatility.
BUS M30E2 ultrasonic sensors from Balluff measure fill levels precisely and without contact at normal pressure as well as in tanks and containers at an overpressure of up to 6 bar. The pressure-tight installation in a tank uses a 1" threaded flange. The combination of switching and analog outputs enables simultaneous level measurement and overflow protection.
Our fork sensors for fluid detection are suitable for fill level detection of clear, colored or cloudy liquids through transparent container walls. They use infrared light to reliably detect all liquids with a water content of over 15%. Thin adhesions are ignored. Because of this, the fork sensors can also detect limit levels in fine, transparent tubes with a small diameter (≤ 6 mm).
BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors are used in a rod or profile design for fill level monitoring of containers made of non-magnetic materials such as glass, stainless steel or plastic. The container wall can be up to 8 mm thick.
A magnetic ring integrated in a float marks the fill level for the monitoring. From its position outside of the container, the measurement system detects the position of the float and then provides it for analysis as a signal. This allows fill levels ranging from a few millimeters up to 6 meters to be reliably detected.
Our BTL-SF fill level probe has proven itself time and again in applications in which the utmost hygiene is essential. It measures with precision in the μm range to support excellent filling results. The strict regulations of the food industry are not a problem as they meet the highest international hygiene standards.
This makes it possible for you to distribute your systems globally.
