The immersion sensor Ex BOV (Bottom Outlet Valve) is incorporated into the bottom outlet valve of the company SchuF. The innovative and cost-efficient combination of sensor and valve is an ideal solution for process analytical applications in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industry.
Located in the bottom part of the vessel, the combination provides a suitable entry point for process monitoring in real-time without costly process connection. Thus, a modification of existing reactor vessels is not necessary. According to the ATEX and IECEx approval the sensor can be applied in explosion areas zone 0.
Because of the close cooperation with the pharmaceutical company Pfizer during the product development, the valve including the LiquiSonic® sensor has already proven successfully in the plants of Pfizer.
