Sick LFV230 Tuning Forks - Point Level Sensor

Sick LFV230 Tuning Forks - Point Level Sensor

The Sick LFV230 range of tuning fork are universal level sensors that precisely detect pre-defined liquid levels in systems to the millimeter regardless of the maximum fill capacity of containers.

LFV230 tuning forks can be used as a signal to prevent overfilling, a switching signal for refilling or as a dry run signal for pump protection and works independantly of the liquid.

The LFV230 has a high quality stainless steel surface along with with aseptic process connectors which make the tuning fork an ideal choice of sensor for use in hygienic applications.

The LFV sensor is compact and can be mounted in areas difficult to access and the LFV230 range also includes tube-extended versions for vertical mounting.
