The industrial manufacturing end-use application is witnessing a rise in the adoption of automated machinery and processes. These automated machinery essentially require level sensors for control and safety applications.
Fluids that have historically been known to be extremely challenging to detect such as soap containing bubbles/foam, milk, and sticky substances such as glue and ink are now proving possible and easier to detect with the variety of level sensing technologies available.
