Level probes type Safety Swing
The Safety Swing probe made by Pfaudler provides level detection to the millimetre according to the principle of the vibrating fork – regardless of the density or viscosity of the medium to be measured. Even foam, bubbles and suspended matter do not impair the response of the Safety Swing probe. The principle is quite simple: The vibrating fork is driven by a piezo-ceramic element which makes it oscillate with its natural mechanical frequency. A second element measures this oscillation and transmits it to the integrated electronic system. The frequency changes when the fork is covered with liquid. This change is registered and converted into a switching instruction by the electronics.
Safety in all orientations
The Safety Swing probe can be installed in any orientation: horizontally, vertically, or inclined. The sensor may be used accordingly: as a maximum limit switch for the upper liquid level, as an additional overfill protection, as a minimum limit switch for the lower liquid level, or as protection against running dry.
Safety and corrosion protection through Pfaudler Glasteel®
Coating is only placed on top of the material. By contrast, the Glasteel® material is a compound of the glass and the carrier material to be protected. This
solves many common safety problems.
