There are a few reasons why some submersible level sensors are made from titanium. You cannot always use a normal level sensor. It might not be strong enough, might react with certain substances like strong corrosives or might leech toxins into a liquid. In harsh environments, a standard stainless steel sensor just won't suffice. So when does one need a titanium level sensor?
Safe for drinking water
Firstly, titanium is a non-toxic material, so it is safe to use in applications where the sensors may come into contact with drinking water or other water sources, like when you need to monitor a water tank. This makes titanium the safest solution when drinking water needs to monitored or measured.
Resistant to deformation
Secondly, titanium is a very strong and durable material, so it is able to withstand the pressure of being submerged in deep water for extended periods of time without deforming or breaking. Low and cold temperatures are no problem either for a titanium level sensor. This makes titanium an ideal material for submersible level sensors that are used in deep water or in other demanding environments.
Thirdly, titanium is a highly corrosion-resistant material. When level sensors are used in saltwater, acids or other aggressive environments, they are exposed to corrosive agents that can damage other materials. Even microbial corrosion has a hard time damaging titanium. Titanium is able to withstand these corrosive agents, so it is a good choice for level sensors that are used in these types of environments.
Silence is golden, measuring is titanium
Overall, the durability, corrosion resistance, and non-toxic nature of titanium make it a good choice for submersible level sensors that are used in demanding environments.
