Grown exclusively in the tropics, the oil palm tree yields premium oil, which is typically utilized for cooking in developing countries.

It is also used in food products, cosmetics, detergents, and, to some extent, biofuel. Palm oil is a minor ingredient in the diet of those in the U.S., but palm oil can be found in more than 50% of all packaged products consumed by Americans.

Oil palms are grown both on small family farms and large plantations across Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The expense of rapid expansion in the palm oil industry comes at the cost of tropical forests—which are essential habitats for a number of endangered species and also offer a lifeline for several human communities.

Securing the highest possible yield with minimum disruption to the natural environment is one major challenge sustainable farming faces.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is aspiring toward delivering an environment-friendly global marketplace that is based on the production and sourcing of palm oil that can be considered socially acceptable.

As well as the WWF, a number of certifications have been drawn up in recent years, including the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), the Rainforest Alliance, International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) and the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB).

These aim of these groups is to stimulate an increase in demand for, and use of, produce using such practices.

An increasing number of companies around the world are facing up to their responsibility in the global supply chain and are only buying RSPO certified palm and palm kernel oil.

With exceptional market prospects in addition to being very profitable per hectare, sustainable palm oil represents excellent earning potential for smallholders in rural areas.

Sustainability certification opens the door to the international market, which offers better earning opportunities while increasing employment in rural regions of countries farming the oil palm tree.

The Senix ToughSonic 30 has been chosen as the preferred sensor at a large-scale Asian Palm Oil producer. The Senix ToughSonic 30 can measure and monitor with great accuracy the Palm Oil levels in large tanks around 9 meters in height.

The level data is transmitted via the sensor’s 4-20mA output on a display unit, also available from Senix.

The sensors must have the capacity to tolerate a dirty, hot environment due to the fact these kinds of tank are located outdoors.

The Senix ToughSonic 30 was also selected due to its durable design, which was engineered for use in some of the harshest industrial environments incorporating potted and protected electronics, rugged 316 stainless steel housing, and IP68 rating. 

They can be simply connected to display units that can control switches or pumps while rapidly measuring level or distance with outstanding precision and much more.
