Turck has announced a dual mode version of its levelprox.

This sensor is an addition to Turck's non-invasive levelproxfamily.

In addition to the reverberation technology of the original sensor, the new model features an echo mode. The sensor determines the level of the media by evaluating the echo as it returns from the opposite tankwall.

The echo mode is useful when detecting the level of a high viscosity media such as yoghurt, which forms a film inside the container wall. By changing the DIP-switch setting, the user will be able to select the appropriate operating mode for the application.

The levelprox is designed for breweries, dairies, food or beverage production facilities, wastewater treatment, chemical handling, oil or lubricant storage and pharmaceutical applications. Using ultrasonic technology to sense through the metal tank walls is used in situations where intrusion into the tank is not desired. In conditions where the media is caustic or volatile, under high pressure, at very high temperatures, and especially if the environment is sanitary are examples where levelprox solves tough applications with advanced technology.

The levelprox is constructed of high-grade 316L stainless steel and can sense through walls from 1 to 15 mm in thickness. A 1½" Tri-clamp fitting is incorporated into the sensor and can be used with the optional mounting kit, which includes the clamp.

The mount is welded to the tank, and the sensor is fastened to the mount with the Tri-Clamp. This positions the sensor face in the ideal detection position and ensures a sanitary, leakproof fitting. levelprox is completely self-contained with no need for an additional amplifier.
