Reed level transmitter suitable for food applications

November 2020 Level Measurement & Control

WIKA has expanded its range of level transmitters with reed measuring chain by adding the model FLR-F for food applications. The instrument has an electro-polished surface with a roughness of 0,8 μm Ra and is available with application-specific process connections such as TriClamp.

The level transmitter works on the float principle with magnetic transmission. It measures the level reliably, even with foaming, and can additionally output a temperature value. The reed contacts in the guide tube (up to six metres long) can be arranged as a quasi-continuous level measurement.

The model FLR-F is also available in a version with a head-mounted transmitter for different output signals and communication protocols. Furthermore, the instrument can be supplied with a removable float limitation and FDA-compliant sealing or in an ATEX variant for applications in which pipes are cleaned with flammable media.
