Level Measurement in Starch Production

August 5, 2013

Krohne OptiwaveThe steeping process in starch production is among the most challenging level measurement environments. The measured product is a solid during filling, creating a lot of dust, then in the steeping phase it’s wetted, creating heavy condensation, which produces a crusty coating on the tank interior and radar antenna. The OPTIWAVE 6300 drop antenna is uniquely impervious to this effect and can measure continuously without the need for antenna purging.
