Endress+Hauser’s new Liquicap T continuous level measuring instrumentation for liquids features a unique build-up compensation mode that overcomes performance problems normally associated with conventional capacitance/inductance level measuring probes, particularly in chemically aggressive, sticky liquid applications.
This fit-and-forget (mount-and-measure) level instrument automatically compensates for any coating or scaling when immersed in dirty or aggressive liquids, detecting build-up by measuring the changes in the electrical parameters. This means it is unaffected by changing density, temperature, dielectric constant, vapour and foam, factors which can affect the accuracy of alternative technologies like hydrostatic pressure, ultrasonic, or float style level transmitters.
The versatile Liquicap T is ideally suited for measuring liquid levels in plastic ISO containers, GRP tanks or concrete pits, unlike other conventional alternatives that require earthing to a metal vessel. Liquicap T’s unique technology offers an installation and reliability benefit for manufacturers of OEM tanks or OEM chemical crate containers.
Devices are supplied pre-calibrated ready for installation. The standard 2m rod probe includes a shortening kit so it can be adjusted on-site by the customer to suit individual storage requirements, with minimal skill-set required.
When combined with the Endress+Hauser Fieldgate remote location data transmitter, the Liquicap T measuring level device provides a cost-effective solution for monitoring, measuring and managing liquid levels at isolated sites.
The Fieldgate software gathers data from the remote device measuring points allowing customers to view multiple container levels from their nearest workstation. Endress+Hauser can also create an online portal so measurements can be viewed off-site via a web browser.
The Liquicap T is a low cost, low-powered, level measuring instrument that is ideal for inventory management of all types of liquids at any location
