Emerson Process Management’s Rosemount 2120, 2130 and 2160 vibrating fork liquid level switches have been tested for overfill protection and certified by the German DiBt WHG approval authority. The approval means that the Rosemount level switches are included in the list of approved products published by DiBt, certified under safety devices for tanks and piping related to water pollution control.

The tests for overfill protection were successfully completed by the third-party tester TÜV Nord and certified by DiBt, an authority of the German Länder Governments for a uniform fulfillment of technical tasks in the field of public law.

Overfill protection devices can shut off or restrict product flow or alert the operator with an alarm when a tank is close to being full. The Rosemount 2120, 2130 and 2160 series were designed for high and low alarms, overfill protection, pump control, including wide pressure and temperature requirements and hygienic applications.
