Clear Line On Line Fluid Detector from Drexelbrook Monitors Presence or Absence of Fluid in Tanks and Piping

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

HORSHAM, PA – AMETEK Drexelbrook, an acknowledged leader in level measurement, has added the Clear Line™ Fluid Detector to its level and analytical measurement product line. The Clear Line is designed specifically for pipe and tank applications in hydrocarbon, pharmaceutical, chemical and food processing industries, where it monitors the presence or absence of fluid in a pipe to provide complete assurance that the tank is empty.

The detector mounts directly into existing pipelines between two standard 150-lb, flat-faced flanges. Without interfering with product flow, it uses RF admittance technology to detect when material is present or absent from a pipe. This is especially important for users of expensive pumps who want to prevent damage or burn out from a pump running empty.

Each Clear Line detector is factory-calibrated to provide reliable, repeatable performance regardless of changes in process fluids and coatings or variations in temperature, conductivity and density. Drexelbrook’s proprietary Cote-Shield™ circuitry ensures dependable detection regardless of conductive coatings or product build up on the sensor.

The Clear Line works without recalibration on processes where fluids can vary from organics to caustics. It also can be used for interface detection to accurately determine when a material changes from one phase to another. This is especially useful in processes involving material separation.

The sanitary, crevice-free design of the Clear Line detector means no cracks or crevices, and the ultra-smooth surface is ideal for shear-sensitive products. Routine maintenance is not required.
