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.

Leak detection is serious business. Gas escaping from a piping system needs to be detected quickly. Depending on the type of gas, the consequences range from merely wasteful to fatal. Leaking gas can also be environmentally damaging, can create an explosion risk, and can even kill thousands of people, as happened in the Bhopal, India chemical plant disaster.
The CDC estimates that each year 48 million Americans eat something that makes them ill. To prevent this, food and beverage manufacturers follow rigorous equipment cleaning and sanitizing regimens, striving to remove any trace of contamination.

Helping to Improve Air Quality
For most of us, the air we breathe is cleaner now than it was a decade ago – that’s good news. But it does depend on where you live. The American Lung Association’s (ALA) 2015 “State of the Air” report says, “Nearly 138.5 million people—almost 44 percent of the nation—live where pollution levels are too often dangerous to breathe.” The situation is especially bad in the western USA, with many urban areas in California suffering from high levels of air pollution.
