Cost-effective sensor for level measurement of liquids and for point level detection and interface measurement.
Capacitance level measurement is based on how the capacity of a capacitor changes: The probe and the tank wall form a capacitor.
Especially suited to:
Simple and price-effective probes offer varied options to monitor levels in liquids, particularly in small tanks, buildup-forming media and extremely high temperatures. Capacitance probes also solve point level detection and certain interface measurements.
- Unaffected by density, turbulences and outgasing media
- Accurate measurement in small tanks
- Short response time
- Measurement from probe end to process connection, no blocking distance
- Proven technology
- Interface measurement independent of emulsion layers
The instrument measures accurately with very brief response times from the end of the probe to the process connection without any blocking distance. The measurement is unaffected by density, turbulences and outgasing media (steam pressure). Capacitance probes are also used in solutions requiring the acquisition of very fast level changes.
Process temperatures -80 to +200°C (-112 to +392°F) and process pressures up to +100 bar (+1.450 psi).
The Minicap and Solicap product series are also available for point level measurement in bulk solids.
