Point level instruments
EP Editorial Staff | March 11, 2020
Liquiphant FTL51B and FTL41 vibrating fork (vibronic) level instruments detect the point level of liquids in a range of products.
The FTL51B features Industry 4.0 and IIoT capabilities, including access using Bluetooth, automatic proof tests and verification, and commissioning with a mobile device. The instrument can be used in storage tanks, containers, and pipes for point level detection of all types of liquids. The vibronic sensor is not affected by changing media properties, flow, turbulence, gas bubbles, foam, vibration, or build up. It can be used in SIL2 and SIL3 hazardous locations and has built-in automatic maintenance and verification functions. The general-purpose FTL41 is similar to the FTL51B, but works at lower pressures, to 580 psi (40 bar), and with a narrower temperature range of -40 to 302 F
(-40 to 150 C).
