MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Division’s M-Series sensors are currently being used to monitor liquid level in filler bowls—holding tanks that are used for gravity feed flow control for the dispensing of liquids into bottles or containers. Combining the unparalleled accuracy and reliability of MTS magnetostrictive sensors with Temposonics ® technology and a sanitary pipe assembly with a tri-clamp flange that have been certified as 3-A compliant, the M-Series is the ideal sensor for bottle filling processes. The foam generated during the filling process will not affect the accuracy of the level measurement due to the fact that the float will rest on the liquid and not the foam. Other effects from the harsh environment inside the filling bowl, such as vapor and spray, will also not effect the level accuracy because the sensing element is enclosed in the sanitary pipe and does not come in direct contact with the liquid.
