    Is this Liquiphant level switch not the perfect match for your application?

  • Application

    The Liquiphant FTL33 is a point level switch for universal use in all liquids. It is used preferably in storage tanks, mixing vessels and pipes, where the internal and external hygiene requirements are particularly stringent. The reliable switching function works independently from product characteristics such as conductivity and dielectric constant value.


    A piezoelectric drive causes the tuning fork of the Liquiphant FTL33 to vibrate at its resonance frequency. When the tuning fork is immersed in a liquid, its intrinsic frequency changes due to the change in density of the surrounding medium. The electronics system in the point level switch monitors the resonance frequency and indicates whether the tuning fork is vibrating in air or is covered by liquid. A signal is output via the DC-PNP or AC/DC electrical connection.

    Application Example

    Hygienic level switch for liquids Liquiphant FTL33 -

    The point level switch can be installed in any position in a vessel, pipe or tank, e.g., as overfill prevention or upper level detection (1), lower level detection (2) or dry running protection for pump (3)
