Continuous level measurement is a very important process variable either for control, inventory or safety applications is vital information needed for your plant operation.

There are two main types of products to measure level liquids or bulks, with many different characteristics, water base, hydrocarbons, chemicals, powders, granulates, with foam presence, turbulence surface or dusty atmosphere so the selection of the correct level measurement instrument need the assistance of an expert to get the best result for your process.


Measurement Principle

Level measurement by hydrostatic column in open tanks is based on the determination of the hydrostatic pressure due to the height of the liquid column. The pressure obtained is a direct measure of the level. In case of closed and pressurized tanks, a differential pressure transmitter is needed.
