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: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
