One of the biggest chemical companies in the Polish market, manufacturer of inorganic and organic chemistry, relies on Tecfluid instruments for use in different areas of the plant, such as SC250 flowmeters or LT level indicators. That is how they are used.
The chemical sector includes diverse sectors and produces raw materials that are incorporated into most of the productive processes, making it one of the key sectors in almost all advanced economies.
One of the biggest chemical companies in the Polish market, manufacturer of inorganic and organic chemistry, has stablished in Poland a facility dedicated to the production of stearic acid, animal fat derived, used for several uses as an ingredient in food, cosmetics or industrial products.
The installation processes animal fats as well as vegetable oils, and enables the production of stearin, glycerine and distilled fatty acids. The fatty acids are converted into stearin, which will be subsequently used among others in the industries of plastics, tires, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, mining and chemistry, for the production of rubbers, detergents, candles and softeners, complying with the requirements of European regulations on safety chemistry. Our partner in Poland, AEA Technique, supplies different instruments for different areas of the plant:
The SC250 variable area metal tube flowmeters, are used for measuring the flow of fatty acids and the acid water. Equipped with 4-20 mA HART ™ protocol transmitters, the SC250 flowmeters of Tecfluid help to maintain the required process conditions.
This series is particularly suitable for flow measuring under extreme temperature and pressure conditions and has high resistance to corrosion.

The LTL14 level indicators by magnetic coupling between the internal float magnet and the external indicator system, provides in this case local indication by means of magnetic strips, ensuring a complete sealing system with no possibility of leakage. They are installed in tanks of iron chloride and hydrochloric acid to provide a visual level control of the process fluids.
You can see how the magnetic strips of the LT level indicators work in this article of our blog.
LT Series level indicator
Within few years of working, both kind of instruments, SC250 flowmeters and LT level indicators, have proven their high usefulness and reliability for the proper performance of the plant.
If you need to know more about the variable area flowmeters, you will be interested in this article of our blog about what is and how a variable area flowmeter works or if you prefer to go deep into the LT series level indicators you can have a look at its technical data sheet.
