NON DESTRUCTIVE ULTRASONIC METER OF LIQUIDS QUANTITY (LEVEL) IN TANKS
PURPOSE
The instrument is designed for measurement of level of liquid in high pressure tanks. The instrument can be used for measurement of level of petrol, liquid fertilizers. The measurement is performed from the liquid medium by non-destructive method. The instrument can be mounted on vessel, which is in use.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE
The level of liquids under high pressure is measured via liquid by using non-destructive echolocation method. The highest accuracy of measurement is obtained by realizing measurements of temperature at some points in tanks.

TECHNICAL DATA
  • The interval of measured level in tanks (0.4 ... 20) m for liquids;
  • Temperature of measured liquid (+1 ... 300) °C;
  • Pressure of liquid 0 ... 200 atm;
  • The quantity of temperature measurement channels
    till 4;
  • Inaccuracy < 0.1% ± 0.001 m;
  • Processor unit is programmable;
  • Operation frequency 17 ... 725 kHz (depends on measured level of liquid);
  • The temperature of surrounding where transducer works (50 ... +150) °C, protection level of ultrasonic antenna IP-68;
  • Interface and output is standard, 2 relays are programmable.
