The Baumer CleverLevel series LBFS/LFFS are a versatile level switch that really displays its strengths in the beverage industry by reducing costs and maintenance thanks to process optimization.
Complex tasks like level control are also a child’s play for the CleverLevel. As an all-rounder, it recognizes all types of different materials and liquids, even sticky or viscous media and foam. These capabilities open up new application potentials for the CleverLevel in the beverage industry.
For instance, as it can be currently seen at the Danish Carlsberg brewery. They use CleverLevel for level control in yeast tanks, solving a problem the brewery previously had in the deployment of vibrating forks: Filling the yeast after fermentation goes together with considerable foam formation. The previously used vibrating fork did not recognize the foam which resulted in regular yeast tank overflows.
The CleverLevel operates on frequency deviation technology and has now solved this problem. It can be configured visually and easily using the special software and FlexProgrammer to suppress or not suppress foam. The CleverLevel is maintenance free, has a shallow mounting depth of 15 mm and meets the important 3A and EHEDG standards. Thanks to its diverse features, the CleverLevel is used throughout the entire brewing process, from the initial filling of the storage tank with barley to the finished beer.
