Our Liquid Level Monitoring systems are for Water tanks, Sewerage tanks, Oil tanks, Petrol tanks, Diesel tanks, Chemical tanks etc. We have different options for each of these liquids. It will inform the users about the level of liquid and will prevent it from overflowing.
For any tank containing fluids, it is necessary to monitor the level of the liquid inside the tank. This is essential for refilling, to prevent overflow, etc. Various types of touch and non-touch methods are available for the same.
Types of Liquid Level Monitoring Systems
Various types of such tanks are water tanks, bulk storage tanks, petroleum tanks, oil tanks, sewage tanks, etc. Many of the latest models of liquid level sensors come as separate liquid level transmitters. This transmits the data and a receiver for receiving and processing the data.
Floats with contacts for signals
Floats are one of the oldest forms of liquid level measurement. In this case, there will be a lever with an air-filled ball a the end of the lever. When the liquid reaches this level, the float rises along with the liquid. It will activate an electrical switch. The material of the float will be plastic or stainless steel based on the application.
Ultrasonic level sensor measurement
Another name for an ultrasonic level sensor is an ultrasound level gauge. This is one of the most common types available nowadays. This is a measurement by a non-touch method. We have to fix the ultrasonic sensor transmitter at the top of the tank. It sends frequent signals to the bottom of the tank.
The ultrasound signals bounce back at the top of the liquid. The transmitter measures the time taken by the ultrasound signals to reach back at the transmitter. This gives the exact measurement of the level of the liquid. The display then indicates this reading.
If the unit has a transmitter, it transmits the data for further processing such as to an automation system. Also, there are laser beam liquid level transmitters. However, the laser beam is not for measurement.
Radio wave liquid level indicators
These are similar to ultrasound level indicators, but use radio waves instead of ultrasound signals. We have to fix the transmitter at the top of the tank. The bounced signals give a distance from the top of the tank to the top of the liquid level.
Microwave liquid level transmitters
Microwave level transmitters are also exactly similar in operation. In this method, the controller uses microwave signals for the level measurement.
Hydrostatic liquid level switch
Hydrostatic liquid measurement works by measuring the pressure applied by the liquid column. The pressure on the sensor will be directly proportional to the height of the liquid. Hence by measuring the pressure, we can measure the height of the liquid.
Capacitance liquid level measurement sensor
In this method, we can calculate the level of the liquid based on the capacitance. The probe and the wall of the tank develops a certain level of capacitance. Depending on the level of the liquid, the measured capacitance varies. We can derive the height of the liquid from this capacitance value.
Water level monitors
Water level sensors are the most common type of liquid level transmitters. For water level monitoring, you can use any of the above methods. However, the most common methods are ultrasound measurement and float indicators.
The float level switch can only provide a signal whether the water has reached the level or not. It cannot give an indication if the water level is somewhere in the middle.
A float switch is the cheapest form of switch available for tanks. Stainless Steel floats are available for corrosive liquid tanks. In this case, the material and the stem of the float will be stainless steel.
Silo monitoring systems
Silos are tanks to store food grains, food-grade oil, flour, etc. However, we can also use them to store any items such as powder, cement, etc. Generally, food-grade Silos are made out of stainless steel. We can monitor the level of the content inside a silo by ultrasound level indicators.
Integration of liquid level sensors into Automation systems
The sensors are capable of communicating through protocols such as Modbus, BACnet, etc. This way we can integrate them into an automation system, SCADA, PLC Panel etc. Our automation team will be able to develop a suitable solution for the same.
A phone call, SMS alert for liquid level indicators
For critical applications, you can connect an auxiliary phone call alert system. Eg. In a critical tank, you may monitor the level of the liquid at two heights. As the liquid reaches the first level, if the motor is not shut off automatically, the liquid rises to the second level of alert.
Once it reaches this level, our system will activate a phone call system. This system will make phone calls to 8 operators and will simultaneously send SMS. Once the operator picks up the phone, it will deliver a custom recorded voice message. Eg. “The water level in tank 3 has reached critical levels”.
