"The tiny sensor" for special tasks
In automated filling or dosing processes, a reliable check of filling levels is usually necessary. The medium to be monitored and the container itself often pose the user with challenges. These can, however, be overcome with special solutions.
A chemical company fills products in small glass bottles at an automatic dosing station. For this purpose, the bottles with openings the size of a test tube are transported to a dosing unit by a transport unit and filled there with a precise quantity of a clear, transparent liquid. The quantity of product filled in each bottle must be absolutely identical. Therefore, each container should be inspected for the proper filling level prior to sealing.
