The provides a minimally invasive solution for the point level detection of liquids, liquid-liquid interfaces, and solids. The switch comes with a variety of hygienic process connections. Unaffected by foam, condensate, or buildup, it can be set to detect foam, or even changes in media characteristics of the same liquid. The switch also is resistant to the CIP and SIP agents that are often used in food and beverage operations.
The switch is fully compliant with FDA and EC1935/2004 requirements, in addition to being EHEDG and 3A certified, all of which are crucial standards for businesses in the food and beverage industry. Typical applications of the Optiswitch 6500 capacitance level switch range from small tanks in hygienic applications to tanks with tough, pasty, or strongly adhesive media. It also can provide block prevention and overflow, dry-run, and pump protection in tanks.
Detections, from interface detection to high- and low-level detection to the detection of foam, are achievable with the hygienic switch.
