Liquid Level Sensor for Landfill Leachate

Application Problem: A landfill wanted to measure liquid level in a below ground (max depth 45 feet) landfill leachate sump (12-foot diameter, concrete and steel walls). This is contaminated water and atmosphere in the sump is toxic, corrosive landfill gas, 50% methane, 50% carbon dioxide, assume saturated humidity conditions, frequent hose downs of sensor and possible impingement on sensor body by storm water.

Application History: Submersible pressure sensors were used for the application and all failed in the challenging environment.

Solution: ABM’s non-contact radar sensor 50Ft EX approved solved the problem.

“We are very pleased.”
