Our portfolio of hygienic level instrumentation can help to maximize your production capabilities, reduce product loss and ensure food safety at your dairy plant. Learn how our level instrumentation can help you:


Intake tanks in dairy applications

The Rosemount 1408H Level Transmitter provides reliable and accurate​ non-contacting level measurement that is unaffected by turbulent surfaces or ​agitators. It is also a maintenance-free radar, and it is resistant to condensation and build-up. Receiving tanks or intake deposits are key measurement points for identifying and correcting potential waste or product quality concerns. Level measurement technology will help you to optimize planning, monitor fast-moving levels within tanks and avoid overfills.

The Rosemount 2110 Level Switch and the Rosemount 2120 Level Switch are both good options to ensure precise pump control for filling and emptying ​of tanks and reliable overfill prevention…
