ifm efector”s LMT Series sanitary point-level sensor is designed to monitor the level of liquids, viscous media and powders in food and beverage processing tanks and pipes. The sensor can provide reliable level indication in storage tanks and protects pumps from run-dry conditions. Viscous media, such as ketchup and mayonnaise, tend to stick to a sensing face and cause unreliable level indication. ifm”s LMT sensor uses high frequency (MHz) capacitive spectrum profiling technology that enables the sensor to ignore foam and deposit buildup and differentiate between actual product in a tank and residue. The LMT sensor meets food and beverage sanitary requirements and features a PEEK sensing face with a food-grade surface finish. A 316 stainless steel body ensures chemical compatibility with harsh cleaning agents. A protection rating of IP68/IP69K prevents liquid ingress. Laser-etched part numbers won’t deteriorate in high pressure cleanings.
