Precision measuring tools for flow and level monitoring.
We’ve been doing this long enough that there’s no surprises. Every problem has a solution, even when it takes shaking things up and rethinking the challenge. That’s our commitment: Find the right flow and level monitoring solutions for your specific needs. So you’re confident that your operations will consistently run efficiently, safely, and profitably.
We officially became FLO-CORP in 1989, starting as a small distribution company. We quickly grew to manufacture our own product lines after seeing how frequently our customers needed more than off-the-shelf solutions. We are committed to being the source for complete, customized systems for your specific setup and needs.
There’s not always a one-size-fits-all and the industries we serve rarely remain stagnant. There’s constantly a need to take on a new challenge or find a better way. And we’re committed to being that go-to source. You can rely on FLO-CORP to bring ideas and innovations that consistently take the accuracy, safety and efficiency of your operations to the next level.
AGRICULTURE: INCREASING EFFICIENCY
PROBLEM: An agriculture and environmental services company was driving over five hours a day to customer sites to check the tank level measurements of flowable sludge material. The customer didn’t know what their tank levels were and the tanks would empty and fill so fast it was easy for overflows to occur.
SOLUTION: We mounted an ultrasonic level transmitter onto the tank to accurately read the level measurement. We wired the level transmitter to our cellular monitor, which took remote readings and transmitted them to our web portal. The customer was then able to remotely monitor the tanks from anywhere in the world at any time – a valuable, time-saving system they cannot live without.
CHEMICALS: ENSURING RELIABILITY
PROBLEM: A specialty chemical company had a contract with the Federal Aviation Administration to supply de-icing fluid to the nation’s airports. This highly regulated product had many compliance issues, so the chemical company needed to automate their process and find a dependable, precise system.
SOLUTION: There were multiple fluids and gases used to make de-icing fluid. We fully automated their blending process using advanced level monitoring, flow and controls. Using FLO-CORP’s level transmitters, along with liquid and gas flow meters, we were able to create a high quality system – now implemented at airports nationwide.
AEROSPACE: ENHANCING SAFETY
PROBLEM: An aerospace manufacturer needed to monitor the level of anodizing acid in 25 tanks, used to condition metal wheels for defense and commercial aviation. It was a challenge because the levels were constantly changing when the wheels were dipped in the solution. It was critical that the tank level did not overflow due to the caustic materials.
SOLUTION: We chose to monitor each tank individually with digital communications systems. We were able to tie in all 25 tanks to a massive remote monitoring system. The new solution notified the aerospace company of level changes and created an alarm historian. The FLO-CORP system was tied into the company’s building automation system, which alerted the fire department and security if needed.
