  • Application Note: Tank Level Control
    , this was an ideal use of the ultrasonic sensor in a simple linear tank level application.
  • Load Cell Application - Tank / Silo
    or digital display to show the output. The system can be automated so an alarm will sound once the tank reaches a certain level. It can notify someone via email when the tank is full, empty, or at whatever level the system is set at. The application can also be setup to trigger another tank to fill
  • Load Cell Application - Tank Dispensing
    In this application FUTEK load cells are used to control material distribution while monitoring the tank level. The load cell with in-line amplifier can be directly connected to a plc or computer for feedback control or one of the FUTEK instruments with set point alarm or analog output option
  • Fluid_Trac Water Level Sensor for Wastewater Holding Tanks
    This application note covers the Fluid-Trac (R) 2-wire water level sensor used as a replacement for a standard 33-240 Ohm resistive float water level sender, reed-switch tube sensors, or capacitive tube senders in gray water and black water holding tanks. Waste water holding tank monitoring systems
  • Level sensors go floatless
    The need to squeeze holding tanks into nooks and crannies of new designs is fostering a fresh look at ways of getting accurate readings in odd-shaped containers. Inventors Yuriy Pchelnikov (left) and David Nyce and one of their SEF sensors. The devices use a sensing element consisting of conducting
  • Load Cell Application - Dual Tank Level Controller
    | Miniature Load Cell | Pancake Load Cell | Precision Load Cell | Pressure Sensor | Reaction Torque Sensor | Rotary Torque Sensor | S Beam Load Cell
  • Switch Tips: Electro-Optic Level Switches
    of a holding tank. But special models are available that incorporate an extension tube that positions the sensor tip up to 15 in. away from the mounting body. This option is used for sensing fluid level at some distance from the top of a tank. Switch housings can be either plastic or
  • Conductivity Level Switches
    Conductivity switches are solid-state devices that detect the presence or absence of electrically conductive liquids. They do so by sending a small current through their probe tip. Current flowing between the sensor and some reference (often the metal tank holding the liquid) is compared inside
  • Ultrasonic Sensor Applications
    The key to ultrasonic liquid detection is to keep the beam perpendicular to the liquid level and away from structures like tank walls, internal ladders, and impellers.
  • Measuring liquid levels with LVDTs
    LVDTs sometimes work better than pressure sensors for gauging tank volumes. A common way of measuring the level of liquid in a tank places a low-pressure sensor at the bottom. The pressure readout is the product of the liquid column height times the density of the liquid. As long as liquid density
  • Fluid_Trac Interface to Microprocessor Controlled Fuel Gauges/Digital Instrumentation
    This application note covers the Fluid-Trac (R) 3-wire liquid level sensor used as a replacement for a standard 33-240 Ohm resistive float sender, reed-switch tube sensor, or capacitive tube sender to interface with microprocessor-controlled fuel gauges or digital instrumentation. (I.e. electronic
  • Remote Sampling with Detector Tubes
    sulfide, oxygen deficiency and combustibles) along with additional measurements for any other known contaminants not covered by those four tests. For example, in a refinery, worker entry into a gasoline storage tank would require the four standard tests and a test for the level of benzene, which is known
