Applications

Pump Room

  • Protect pumps against water damage caused by water leaks
  • Detects flooding and alerts when water reaches the level of the sensor

Beer Making

  • Prevents overfilling and ensures the proper level and pressure while cooking hops and wort in the wort tank
  • FDA approvals and hygienic fittings for food-grade use
  • Measures reliably despite foam, condensation, and solids present during process

Milk Cultures

  • Point level detection in vessels used for starting dairy cultures
  • Used in production of yogurt, kefir, butter, and cheeses
  • Sensor immune to heating, cooling, and fermentation cycle changes

Food Storage

  • Metering level of coagulants added to milk when making cheese
  • Ensuring adequate levels of rennet enzymes in cheese vats to ensure thickening
