Point Level Sensors ignore foam and deposit build-up.

Press Release Summary:



Able to monitor level of liquids, viscous media, and powders in tanks and pipes of food and beverage processing applications, LMT Series has IP68/IP69K rating, sanitary PEEK sensing tip with food-grade surface finish, and 316 stainless steel body that ensures chemical compatibility even with harsh cleaning agents. High frequency (MHz) capacitive spectrum profiling technology enables sensor to differentiate between residue and actual product in tank as to ignore foam and deposit build-up.



Original Press Release:



IFM Efector Introduces the New LMT Series Point Level Sensor Series.



Monitors the level of liquids, viscous media and powders in food and beverage processing tanks and pipes

Provides reliable level indication in storage tanks and protects pumps from run-dry conditions

High frequency capacitance technology ignores foam and deposit build-up

Sanitary PEEK sensing tip with food-grade surface finish

316 stainless steel body ensures chemical compatibility with harsh cleaning agents



High frequency capacitance technology ignores foam and deposit build-up

Viscous media, such as ketchup and mayonnaise, tend to stick to a sensing face and cause unreliable level indication. ifm's LMT Series sensor uses high frequency (MHz) capacitive spectrum profiling technology that enables the sensor to differentiate between actual product in a tank or only residue.



Meets food and beverage sanitary requirements

The LMT features a PEEK sensing face with food-grade surface finish. A 316 stainless steel body ensures chemical compatibility even with the harshest cleaning agents. A high protection rating of IP68/IP69K prevents liquid ingress. Laser-etched part numbers won’t deteriorate in high-pressure cleanings.
