The Non-Medical Use of Bubble Sensors

The Non-Medical Use of Bubble Sensors

You have probably heard of bubble sensors and their role when it comes to detecting the presence of air pockets or bubbles inside fluid-filled tubes. In the medical world, technology such as this one can be a total game changer when it comes to the safety of patients! Bubble sensors can detect small air pockets in certain pumps that supply blood to the heart and make sure they are managed accordingly. When it comes to patient safety, bubble sensors are a crucial part of the medical world.

These are only the medical benefits of bubble detector sensors; however, there are non-medical applications of bubble sensors as well, which we will focus on in this post.

We can assure you that we have your needs covered for any of the applications mentioned below, so let’s take a look.

Retail/ Consumer Goods

The retail and consumer goods industry has seen incredible integrations of sensors over the years. Take the example of food. A bubble sensor in the milk dispensing system at a coffee shop can alert staff when the bag is empty, prompting them to stock up when needed. It can also help send back diagnostic data to the central servers to detect potential anomalies.


In the industrial market, manufacturing facilities, heavy machine operators, and energy verticals can benefit significantly from using bubble sensors. These help in the filling, pumping, and dispensing applications and can even help detect overfill or underfilling of industrial tanks. Bubble sensors can be used in clean rooms and particular counters to ensure that the same line is free of air bubbles, particularly in bio-pharmaceutical systems. Bubble sensors can also be used as fuel warning systems.

There are multiple applications of bubble detector sensors out there and can be used to your advantage. If you have custom bubble sensor requirements, we can help you!
