Chemical Storage Tank Level Indication - Monitoring using a Magnetostrictive Transmitter

Customer: Pump Package Equipment (Scotland).

Duty: Chemical Storage Tank Level Indication.

Process: Hydrocarbons and Biodegradable Solvents, Pressure 0.5 Bar, Temperature Range -10oC up to +80oC.

Application: The client required an accurate method(+/- 1mm) to measure the batch process within his chemical storage tanks.

Solution: A magnetostrictive transmitter mounted directly inside the vessel provided the required accuracy needed, with this device you can achieve resolutions of +/- 0.8mm.  The design includes for a float system mounted directly on the transmitter rod, the float then moves up and down the transmitter based on the level of the liquid inside the vessel and provides a 4-20mA output.
