Capanivo 7000 in Lubrificant Pipe
One of the largest tire producers in the world, needed a reliable level switch to measure the level in a 3" tube of lubricating oil flow at 40ºC. It was a replacement for a sensor with a 1/2" process connection which did not work properly due to the viscosity of the material.
In this case, the ideal solution was our Capanivo 7000 capacitive point level sensor with 1/2" stainless steel thread and PPS probe. This equipment has the active shield technology that prevents the sensor from acting with a false signal due to the protective electric field for materials adhering to the probe. Its reduced insertion length is the ideal solution for a 3" tube.
