Level sensors - Use in hygienic applications

  • Flexible installation independent of the orientation
  • Robust stainless steel housing
  • Ready for operation immediately thanks to fixed setting
  • Differentiation of media by parameterisation of the switching outputs
  • Specially for the use in hygienic applications


Level sensors – use in hygienic applications

The level sensors of the LMT series monitor levels in vessels and tanks or ensure run-dry protection of pumps.
Featuring high-quality housing materials such as stainless steel or PEEK as well as hygienic process connections, the sensors are particularly suited for the food and beverage industry. Numerous international approvals or certifications such as EHEDG, 3A and FDA allow the use of the sensors in hygienic applications.
The units can be used in almost all liquids, viscous media and bulk materials. They even detect extremely adhering (e.g. ketchup) or non-conductive media (e.g. vegetable oil). Deposits and foam are suppressed reliably. The device provides two switching outputs that can be set independently of each other so it is even possible to differentiate between two media.
The sensors are offered with different probe lengths.
Each LMT sensor is factory-set to a specific medium. For special requirements, the sensitivity and further functions can be adjusted to the corresponding application. Splashes, wave movements and air bubbles can be compensated, for example, by setting a switching delay.
The parameters can be set using, for example, a USB interface. The LINERECORDER SENSOR software is used to visualise, transfer and archive parameter sets.
