Level Measurement

Submersible level sensors and level transmitters

Submersible level sensors and level transmitters

Submersible level sensors and transmitters make it very easy to measure the level of a tank, depth of a river, level of water in a borehole for instance.  You simple suspend the sensor by its strain relieved cable to the bottom of the tank or borehole or river (or just off the bottom to prevent silt, rust and other grime found at the bottom from building up on the sensor) and it will measure the hydrostatic pressure created by the liquid above the sensor (as a rough guide approx. 1m of water = 100mbar of pressure) and convert this to an electrical signal, we use the electrical signal to calibrate an accurate level measurement in the tank / river / reservoir / borehole for instance or if you know the dimensions of the tank you can easily calculate the volume of the tank.  We have instruments that will do that for you too in the indicators and data loggers section.  The SRP-73, SRP-94, SRP-147 for instance all have 20 point linearisation or pre-configured tank shapes to calculate the square, cylindrical, dished or cone ends of tanks which makes life easier for installing.

Screw-in level transmitter

Screw-in level transmitter

If you do not require a submersible level sensor or transmitter, you can simply screw these devices into the bottom or side of the tank / pipework by their threads and this will enable the sensor to measure the hydrostatic pressure created by the liquid above the sensor, approximately 1mWG is around 100mbar. We can use this pressure measurement to convert to a level reading.  We can also take into consideration the specific gravity of the media to correct for different density liquids, furthermore we can supply a temperature sensor to measure the temperature of the liquid which can be used to dynamically adjust the specific gravity should the liquid have a specific profile it follows when the temperature of the media changes.  We can take this temperature measurement and pressure measurement (level) into a dual channel device such as the CMC-N16 and use the maths channels to create a true level measurement reading.
