Ultrasonic fuel level sensors for challenging applications
All Sino-Instrument ultrasonic fuel level sensor models provide continuous, non-contact measurement (like radar), making them ideal for measuring fluids found in machine tools, like oil or hydraulic fluid, that cannot be tainted by the introduction of foreign materials.
Our ultrasonic fuel level measurement modules can be programmed to account, for oscillations and turbulence, that could otherwise lead to incorrect readings.
Measurement clear to the bottom of the tank can be realized.

Chemical Level Measurement
Many common chemicals can damage level sensors. Even stainless steel sensors can be quickly corroded by some chemicals.
Transducer elements and the adhesives that bond them to housings are especially susceptible to corrosive liquids and gases.
Special chemically resistant polymer housings are necessary for these environments.
Simply coated transducers or partially protected sensor housings may not offer enough protection.
Tank Level Display
A simple display will provide tank level in feet or meters.
With more advanced displays,
you can convert simple level measurements to engineering units like gallons, liters, pounds or kilograms.
Tank Level Alarms
Many tank level applications require alarms to be sounded when levels get above or below a certain point.
Tank Level Control
Ultrasonic level sensors may send measurements to a tank level controller, or ToughSonic sensors may control tanks directly using switches and relays.
Advanced Tank Level Measurements
Tank level measurements are sometimes complicated by conditions in the tank.
Structural obstacles such as supports or mixing equipment might be in the sensor measurement path.
Similarly, spray or foam can obscure the air-to-liquid interface that ultrasonic sensors detect.
These applications require more advanced sensor capabilities.

How many types of level sensors are there?
There are many different kinds of level measurement transmitters, including:
- Guided Microwave
Each of these transmitters works in different ways, making them useful for different types of processes.
These transmitters use liquid stored in a tank or container, as a dielectric medium between two or more electrodes.
The energy capacity of the capacitor circuit increases, when there is more liquid and decreases if there is less liquid. By measuring the variations in the capacitance value, capacitance level transmitters can calculate the current fill level of the tank or container.
Extended reading: What is a capacitive liquid level sensor?
Also known as pressure level transmitters, these transmitters help in determining fluid contents of a container, by measuring the pressure of the resting body of the fluid within it. The greater the force of liquid, the greater the volume of fluid.
These transmitters use a magnetic object, which is suspended in a buoyant float.
This is usually in a narrow auxiliary column, to restrict lateral movements of the float.
While the float is on top of the liquid, the movement of the float is measured by a different magnetic device.
This allows a precise and stable fill level to be transmitted. This method is suitable for continuous measurement, owing to the tendency of the float to rise or sink based on the liquid level.
These transmitters work on the principle of radar by using radio wave emissions.
These transmitters are normally mounted at the top of a tank filled with a liquid.
The transmitter sends a radar signal into the liquid and receives a reflection of the signal.
The transmitters then analyze the current fill level of the tank based on the time taken by the transmitted signal to return.
In this type of transmitter, an ultrasonic transducer is mounted at, or near the top of a container containing liquid.
The transducer sends out an ultrasonic pulse.
The pulse hits the surface of the liquid and gets reflected.
The sensor then calculates the fill level based on the time between the transmitted and received signal.
Magnetostrictive level sensor, is the best choice for water level measurement, diesel tank level, and fuel tank level measurement.
These transmitters work by sending a microwave pulse, through a sensor cable or rod.
The signal hits the surface of the liquid, and travels back to the sensor,and then to the transmitter housing.
The electronics integrated into the transmitter housing determine the filling level based on the time, taken by the signal to travel down the sensor and back up again.
These types of level transmitters are used in industrial applications, in all areas of process technology.
