Submersible Tank Level Sensor: Industry’s Best Choice
100 series submersible level sensors are a type of sensor that is used to measure the level of liquid inside a tank. They are specifically designed for use in chemical tanks due to their high level of resistance to corrosion and chemicals, making them an ideal solution for harsh environments. The sensors are simple to install, require no programming and have no moving parts, which makes them easy to use and maintain.
The sensors come in two main types: piezoresistive and capacitance. Piezoresistive sensors use a piezoresistive element that changes resistance in response to changes in pressure. On the other hand, capacitance sensors use a diaphragm that changes capacitance in response to changes in pressure. Both types of sensors are able to provide accurate and reliable readings of liquid levels in tanks.
The sensors are constructed with a plastic body for corrosive applications and Teflon jacketed cable for chemical resistance. They must be connected to the LP100 junction box for an accurate reading. In comparison, ultrasonic sensors are not as reliable for measuring liquid levels in tanks as they can be affected by foam, vapor, condensation, and turbulence, which can lead to inaccurate readings. Therefore, 100 series submersible level sensors are often preferred over ultrasonic sensors for measuring liquid levels in tanks.
100 series submersible level sensors come in two main types: piezoresistive and capacitance. The choice between the two types of sensors depends on the specific application and the requirements of the system.
Piezoresistive sensors are typically used in applications where high accuracy and stability are required. They are also well-suited for use in environments where there is a high level of vibration or pressure fluctuation.
Capacitance sensors, on the other hand, are typically used in applications where a large measurement range is required. They are also well-suited for use in environments where there is a high level of temperature fluctuation or where the sensor will be exposed to a high level of electromagnetic interference.
In summary, if high accuracy and stability are required, piezoresistive sensors may be the best choice, while if a large measurement range and resistance to temperature fluctuation and electromagnetic interference are needed, capacitance sensors may be the better option.
