Capacitve level probe

Leveltec LR


  • capacitive limit detection for food and beverage with hygienic process connection
  • product monitoring in pipes / pump / dry running protection
  • independent of conductivity of media
  • specially for limit detection of pasty media and heavy product deposits
  • extended measuring range for critical media (e.g. oil, fat, ...)
  • rough construction in protection class ip 69k
  • reliable operation even in adhesive media by parameterization of both on and off condition


The LEVELTEC LR capacitive level switch is used specifically for pump protection for pasty and adhesive media in pipes. Due to its construction of an inactive extension of the measuring pipe, the LEVELTEC LR is insensitive to product deposits on the pipe wall, thereby guaranteeing reliable detection. Two types with different lengths are available to cover the appropriate installation in pipes DN40 and > DN50. Due to the temperature resistance of the device, sterilisation and CIP cleaning can be performed.

The output signal can be connected directly to a PLC or PLS for further processing. The hygienic adaptation to the process is ensured by corresponding welded-in parts and flush-mounting. The adaptation to the DK values of the respective media can be infinitely adjusted in the device.
