Elixir-T vibrating fork is a compact level switch for liquids and is used in tanks, containers and pipelines. It comes with hygienic process connection and polished finish and is hence ideal for hygienic applications. This level switch detects the resonant frequency change and changes the output signal according to failsafe mode selection. Typically, the output is fed to a PLC which then uses it to control the process.
It is suitable for all kinds of liquids having viscosity up to 10,000 cP & density greater than or equal to 0.7gm/cc.
IP-67 Marking, RoHS Compliance, CE Marking
The following figure describes the dimensions of different parts of Elixir-T.
A specially shaped tuning fork is kept vibrating using piezo-electric elements. Typically, the fork vibrates at its natural frequency. The frequency of oscillation for the tuning fork changes when immersed in liquids. The change in frequency is detected by the microprocessor leading to a switching decision.

Input power supply & Outputs
Depends on the viscosity of the application material. For water at 25°C, response times are:
Elixir-T is suitable for hygienic applications which require easy to clean mountings and good surface finish. It is used for all industrial liquids, and serves in the following industries:
More value in less
Shorter vibrating forks – minimum insertion length of 68mm, with no compromise in operational ruggedness of the device. Saves space → paves the way for designing smaller tanks / silos.
Sapcon’s liquid vibrating forks have been successfully installed in applications where there is turbulence in the liquid and in the application tank.
Long term reliability is the key feature of Sapcon
Reliability and Quality with Elixir-T have gone a step further than straightforward operational compliance.
Reliable and fast switching, which in unaffected by flowing material
Ensures easy cleaning, helps with stringent hygiene compliances in pharmaceuticals, dairy and food applications.
