Level Measurement & Control


Level measurement for sanitary applications

August 2019 Level Measurement & Control

WIKA’s model FLM-H magnetostrictive sensor has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. The sensor is particularly suitable for the special conditions of CIP/SIP cleaning processes, such as chemical stability towards cleaning liquids and high temperatures.

The guide tube is directly welded to the process connection, which guarantees a crevice- free connection where additional sealing is not required. The sensor is supplied with a DC voltage of 1000 V and vailable output signals are 4-20 mA or 4-20 mA with HART signal.

The hygienically designed sensor housing, with an ingress protection of up to IP68, offers a secure protection for external cleaning with splash water and enables its use in high humidity environments.

The model FLM-H sensor fulfils the high demands of sanitary applications. It is marked with the 3-A symbol and current version number, as it conforms, based on a third-party verification, to the 3-A standard.
