Non-Contact Level Measurement

In the automated production process, in order to ensure the consistency of product quality, the time when the production process is directly monitored and intervened by humans has gone.

Liquid level measurement and monitoring play an increasingly important role. It can be said that liquid level measurement and monitoring It directly affects the quality of the product and even whether the production process can proceed smoothly.

Contact measurement
A measuring method in which the sensing element of a measuring tool or measuring instrument obtains measurement information through direct contact with the measured surface.

Non-contact measurement
Non-contact measurement is based on photoelectric, electromagnetic and other technologies. Without touching the surface of the object to be measured, a measurement method to obtain information on the surface parameters of the object.

Methods of liquid level measurement:

There are mainly the following methods and principles for measuring liquid level in the industrial field.

  1. Direct display category. Such as glass tube, glass plate, etc.;
  2. Floating ball class. Such as magnetic flaps, small floats, connecting rod floats, cable floats, side-mounted floats, continuous floats, etc.
  3. Contact induction class. Capacitance level gauge, magnetic to telescopic level gauge, pressure type level gauge, etc.;
  4. Non-contact type. Ultrasonic level gauge, radar wave level gauge, etc.

Applications of Non Contact Liquid Level Sensors

  1. Liquid level measurement of sealed tank
  2. Liquid level detection of fire storage tank
  3. Liquid level measurement of open tank
  4. Liquid level detection in open channels, rivers, reservoirs, etc.

Non Contact Liquid Level Sensor Working Principle

Ultrasonic Level Sensor Working Principle

The working principle of the ultrasonic liquid level sensor is:

Ultrasonic transducer (probe) emits high-frequency pulse sound waves, and the surface of the measured level (material) is reflected back. The reflected echo is received by the transducer and converted into an electrical signal. The propagation time of the sound wave is proportional to the distance from the sound wave to the surface of the object.

The relationship between the sound wave transmission distance S and the sound speed C and the sound transmission time T can be expressed by the formula: S=C×T/2.

The probe part emits ultrasonic waves, which are then reflected by the liquid surface. The probe part is received again. The distance from the probe to the liquid (object) surface is proportional to the elapsed time of the ultrasonic wave:
hb = CT2
Distance [m] = time × speed of sound/2 [m]
The temperature compensation formula of sound velocity:
Ambient sound velocity = 331.5 + 0.6 × temperature

Radar Level Measurement: Measuring Principle

Very short microwave pulses with very low energy are transmitted and received through the antenna system. The radar wave runs at the speed of light. The operating time can be converted into level signals by electronic components. A special time extension method can ensure stable and accurate measurement in a very short time.

Radar Level Measurement and guide wave radar level measurement

Electromagnetic waves propagate in the air at the speed of light. The distance between the radar level gauge and the surface of the material can be expressed by the following formula:

D = (1/2)*CT

In the formula: D ———the distance between the radar level gauge and the surface of the material; C ———Speed of light; T ———Pulse time.

Then the liquid level is:   L = E-D

In the formula: L — liquid level; E ———The total height of the tank;  D ———Air height.

Even in the presence of false reflections, the new micro-processing technology and the unique ECHOFOX- software can accurately analyze the level echo. By inputting the size of the container, the distance value can be converted into a signal proportional to the level. The instrument can be debugged with empty positions.

Non Contact Liquid Level Switch and Controller

Ultrasonic Level Switch-External Mounted

Ultrasonic Level Switch, External Mounted (referred to as “external level switch”) is a new type of level measurement alarm device. Ultrasonic Level Switch is mainly used to detect the liquid level of the storage tank. It can realize the upper and lower limit alarm or monitor whether there is liquid in the pipeline (dry protection). The material of the storage tank can be various metals, non-metals or non-foamed plastics. The wall thickness can be Up to 70mm.

Ultrasonic Level Switch is not affected by factors such as medium density, dielectric constant, conductivity, reflection coefficient, pressure, temperature, precipitation, etc. It is suitable for various liquid levels in the pharmaceutical, petroleum, chemical, electric power, food and other industries Engineering control. Ultrasonic Level Switch is the ideal choice for the detection of toxic, highly corrosive, and dangerous liquid level.
