Submersible Level Sensors Really Are the Best Tank Level Sensor
Submersible tank level sensors are considered to be the best choice for measuring the level of liquids or bulk chemicals in tanks or other containers due to a variety of reasons, including:
- High accuracy: Submersible level sensors are typically highly accurate, and can provide precise measurements of the level of the liquid or chemical. This is because they are in direct contact with the liquid or chemical, and are not affected by external factors such as temperature, pressure, vibration, or electromagnetic interference.
- Durability: Submersible level sensors are designed to withstand the harsh conditions of being submerged in a liquid or chemical, and are typically made with durable materials such as stainless steel. This makes them suitable for use in harsh environments and with corrosive or abrasive liquids and chemicals.
- Versatility: Submersible level sensors can be used to measure the level of a wide range of liquids and chemicals, including those that are corrosive or abrasive. They can also be used in a variety of tank sizes and shapes, including cylindrical and rectangular tanks.
- Easy to install: Submersible level sensors can be easily installed in tanks or other containers, and do not require any additional equipment or accessories. They can be connected to a control system using a variety of communication protocols such as 4-20mA, HART, Modbus, Profibus, etc.
- Cost-effective: Submersible level sensors are often less expensive than other types of level sensors, making them a cost-effective option for many applications.
- Maintenance-free: Submersible level sensors are sealed and protected by the liquid they are measuring, which makes them easy to clean and maintain.
Submersible tank level sensors work by being directly submerged in the liquid or chemical that is being measured. They can work in one of two ways:
- Contacting: These sensors come in contact with the liquid and use the buoyancy force of a float to detect the liquid level. As the liquid level rises or falls, the float also moves up and down, which causes a change in the resistance, capacitance or other physical properties of the sensor. This change is then used to determine the level of the liquid.
- It’s important to note that while submersible sensors are considered to be the best choice, it depends on the characteristics of the liquid or chemical that is being measured, and the specific requirements of the application. It’s always important to consult with an expert to determine the best level sensor for your specific needs.
