  • Application

    The Liquipoint FTW23 is a point level switch for water-based liquids. It is used preferably in storage tanks, mixing vessels and pipes. Developed and built for the food and beverage industry, the Liquipoint FTW23 meets international hygienic requirements. The Liquipoint FTW23 can be used permanently in process temperatures up to 100 °C (212 °F) and in cleaning and sterilization processes to 135 °C (275 °F) for 60 minutes.

    Function

    The capacitance at the tip of the sensor, and therefore the dielectric value of the medium, is determined using an electrical field. Given that the dielectric value of air and a water-based liquid differ, the Liquipoint FTW23 can differentiate between the two states, i.e. covered and uncovered.

    Application Example

    Liquipoint FTW23 - Point level switch - Application Example

    The measuring system consists of a Liquipoint FTW23 point level switch, e.g. for connection to programmable logic controllers (PLC).

    a) Overfill protection or upper level detection (MAX)

    b) Pump dry running protection (MIN)

    c) Lower level detection (MIN)
