  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • The Gas Company, Hawaii
    and Lanai. TGC had specific requirements in choosing a liquid level sensor with regard to existing tank installations, maintenance, monitoring convenience and atmospheric conditions. In order to fulfill these requirements and achieve the most accurate liquid-level measurement possible, TGC purchased
  • Going the (Short) Distance With Wireless
    Wireless sensors and networks can make sense even over short distances. The operator of a major water park had to monitor the water level in its tank for a performing whale, a critical factor in keeping the beast healthy. Unfortunately, the cable from the level sensor ran for about 10 ft beneath
  • RV Toilets 101
    of your vehicle. A wide variety of products are available to deter odor from overtaking the holding tanks and permeating into the coach. Specially designed RV bathroom cleaners, level sensor treatments, holding tank deodorants and RV toilet paper have all been manufactured to protect the components
