In the food and beverage industry, the ability to accurately and reliably measure the level of materials in storage tanks and process vessels is essential, as it helps to reduce product loss and maximize production capability. Manufacturers also need to consider vital criteria, such as compliance with the industry’s stringent hygiene and food safety standards and compatibility with the process conditions and tank layout for the different applications.
