Harrington Industrial Plastics - Flowline Liquid Level Transmitter

When Suez North America needed reliable level measurement of their brine wastewater storage tanks, they turned to Flowline. The environmental company provides industrial and municipal water recycling services to 16k sites, and reliable level measurement is core to their business. At this Northeast location, the operators experienced intermittent performance from ultrasonic level sensors when the temperature dipped below freezing. The tanks are heated, and in extreme cold, the resulting steam, vapor and condensate attenuated their acoustic signal. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our pulse radar sensors, that are unaffected by such variables.

The pulse radar sensor provides continuous level data to the PLC, which in turn, monitors the tank, and controls the treatment process. Flowline is reliable level measurement.

EchoPulse® LR10 Pulse Radar Liquid Level Transmitter

The general purpose 26 GHz. pulse radar level transmitter provides continuous level measurement up to 32.8’ (10m) with a 4-20 mA signal output, and is configured via its integral push button display module. The non-contact liquid level sensor is intended for chemical or water storage applications in above grade metal or reinforced concrete tanks or below grade tanks of any material. Select this sensor for easy process conditions with corrosive media, light agitation, condensation or vapor, and installation in a low-profile tank adapter or flange fitting. Typical applications include chemical bulk storage and tanker trucks.

Product Application

Bedford ReadyStair

Safety is at the core of Bedford’s ReadySeries lineup of modular FRP components, and no safety solution is complete without industrial stair safety. That’s where ReadyStair comes in. The pre-engineered FRP stair systems and stair towers have a range of safety elements built in. Humans have been climbing stairs for years, and in that time, they’ve been tripping and stumbling on them for just as long. Stairs seem so easy, yet missteps often happen. In an industrial setting, an accident on stair towers or stairways can have unfortunate outcomes.
