Continuous Level Measurement Sensors
Continuous level measurement
Unlike point level sensors, which can only detect a media level at a predefined point, level sensors detect the exact level of a medium in real time. The user is thus informed at all times about the current, percentage content of the container, which optimizes inventory management and reduces costs.
There are different technologies for continuous level measurement such as capacitive and radar sensors as well as electromechanical plumb bob systems, all have advantages but also disadvantages depending on the application. For the selection, numerous process conditions have to be considered, which have to be mastered for the sensor technology. In addition, the requirements for bulk solids sensors differ from those for liquid sensors. For this reason, UWT offers a broad portfolio of different technologies. This allows us to individually address their requirements to always provide them with the best possible solution.
- Media type (e.g. bulk, powder, liquid, paste, etc.)
- Media properties (e.g. bulk density, conductivity, viscosity, etc.)
- Input conditions (e.g. tank material, tank geometry, installation position, installations within the tank, etc.)
Process conditions (e.g. pressure, temperature, ambient conditions, explosion protection, hygiene requirements, etc.)
