Ultrasonic transducer measures liquid levels in corrosive atmospheres

02.12.2008
The Siemens Division Industry Automation has added a PVDF (Polyvinylidene Fluoride) nose cone as an option to the non-contacting ST-H ultrasonic level transducer for liquids.

This new material type improves the chemical compatibility of the ST-H transducer, offering more options for wet well, chemical storage, and process vessel applications.


When paired with a Siemens ultrasonic controller the ST-H transducer effectively measures the level of liquids in applications up to ten meters distance (33 feet) in conditions from -40 to +73 degrees Celsius (-40 to 164 degrees Fahrenheit). The transducer design includes both a 1 inch and 2 inch integral process connection. This allows easy mounting on varied vessels and wells. When installed using the 2 inch mounting threads, the only wetted parts are PVDF, providing excellent chemical immunity in corrosive atmospheres.

The ST-H transducer is impervious to dust, moisture, corrosion, vibration, flooding and temperature extremes. The non-contacting design virtually eliminates the nuisance, danger and expense of cleaning, adjusting and repair associated with contacting devices.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
