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: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
