In the production of medical consumables, autoclaves are commonly used for sterilization. Every autoclave has 4 chambers where medical products are sterilized. They work with dry, saturated steam at 2.7 bar pressure and 130 °C. To regulate the water level in the condensate sump, a reliable level measurement is required. The overpressure is also measured to ensure an optimal and safe autoclaving process.
