Chemical Level Measurement
Many common chemicals can damage level sensors. Even stainless steel sensors can be quickly corroded by some chemicals. Transducer elements and the adhesives that bond them to housings are especially susceptible to corrosive liquids and gases. Special chemically resistant polymer housings are necessary for these environments. Simple coated transducers or partially protected sensor housings may not offer enough protection. For long-term durability, look for a chemical level sensor that provides a continuous barrier between the transducer and electronics and the chemicals being measured like our ToughSonic CHEM sensors. Also make sure to verify the sensor housing material’s resistance to the chemicals you are measuring at the operating temperatures you expect to encounter.
