Battery Acid Reservoir Level Measurement

Flowline EchoPod

When a North American battery manufacturer needed reliable level measurement of their sulfuric acid reservoirs, they turned to Flowline.

Lead acid car batteries are basically a positive and negative plate, separated by porous insulating material that allows current to flow between them. The electrolyte is a sulfuric acid and water solution, commonly referred to as battery acid.  Highly corrosive and difficult to handle, operators dispense acid through filling stations. Each station has a small reservoir, pump and level sensor. Their level sensors often failed due to corrosion attack.

Cooling Tower Sump Level Measurement

When a Major North American auto manufacturer needed reliable level measurement of their cooling tower sumps, they turned to RHFS and Flowline. The reclamation, cooling and treatment of process water is critical to their manufacturing operations, and previous float level sensors were unreliable due to corrosion, scaling, and to a lesser extent, agitation.
