Why the LP100 Level Transmitter Might be Right for You

by Jason D.

The number of level measurement tools being offered continues to grow, which has the potential to create headaches for customers trying to find the perfect fit for their application. 

Transmitters are essential to important applications like water treatment, allowing groups to monitor the amount of material in a chosen tank or vessel that often contains corrosive liquids, vapor, or agitation. More expensive options are unsuited for those situations but the Level Pro LP100 remains a reliable, cost-effective solution. 

So, what exactly sets the LP100 apart from the market? Let’s take a closer look. 

Why the Level Pro LP100?

Depending upon your application, the LP100 can stand head and shoulders above its peers.  It can handle foam, vapor and other variables within tanks that ultrasonic transmitters may be less suited for. 

Radar transmitters, an incredibly accurate option, can be more expensive and may not fit every user’s budget. 

Level Pro’s LP100 is not affected by variable liquids and comes in at a price far lower than many alternatives, relying on the tried and true ceramic sensing diaphragm which measures the media above it to calculate level and provide accuracy of  ±0.5% or better.   

In addition, the transmitter’s rugged, non-clogging design means you can spend less time troubleshooting or worrying about system reliability and more time on the job. 

Real-world applications for the LP100

The background: A customer is hoping to measure the amount of liquid in an intermediate bulk container, or IBC, with relatively precise measurements that allow them to avoid running out of material while also avoiding premature, costly refills. 

The problem: Their container is filled with sodium hypochlorite (commonly called bleach) and is regularly agitated. Due to the highly corrosive nature of the chemical, most metal level transmitters are not an ideal solution. 

The agitation and potential for vapor or other variables means many level transmitters are not suitable for this application. 

The solution: Our engineers may recommend the LP100 paired with an approved enclosure to create a mobile level monitoring solution. The LevelPro 100 is designed for continuous level measurement for aggressive liquid media and is offered with multiple plastic body options suitable for use in corrosive environments.
