Submersible level probe features ceramic diaphragm

January 11, 2017  By Administrator

The Optibar LC 1010 submersible level probe from Krohne provides simple and continuous hydrostatic level measurement for water wells, rainwater retaining and overflow basins, and tanks.

The probe features a ceramic diaphragm designed for water and wastewater, environmental engineering and OEM applications.

Krohne, whose headquarters are in Duisburg, Germany, provides process measuring technology for the measurement of flow, mass flow, level pressure and temperature.


The Optibar LC 1010 features a 316L stainless steel housing and a high overload-proof ceramic diaphragm for long operating life. The diaphragm is flush mounted for safe and easy cleaning on site. With a diameter of 22 mm (1″), the probe can be used in small vessels. It comes with preconfigured measuring ranges from 100 mbar/10 kPa/1.5 psi up to 10 bar/1 MPa /150 psi. Customer-specific ranges are available on request.

It features ATEX and IECEx certification and a corrosion-resistant TPE cable that is also approved for use with potable water. The cable houses an air hose to be used for differential pressure level measurement with closed vessels. With open vessels, the air hose can be capped for absolute pressure measurement.

The probe may be integrated with a three-wire Pt100 temperature sensor or with HART 7 communication.
