Hydraulic Oil Reservoir

Continuous level measurement and point level detection in hydraulic oil reservoir.

Application

Hydraulic fluid provides energy transmission through a system, enabling work and motion to be accomplished. Overtime, hydraulic fluid is slowly lost due to heat, lubrication or leakage inside equipment. Maintaining adequate level within the hydraulic reservoir tank is vital to the proper operation of power equipment.

Depending upon the process conditions, either a Radar or ultrasonic level transmitter can be used to provide a continuous 4/20mA output signal, proportional to liquid level. This signal can be sent to a digital display, PLC or DCS system. Point level switches can be utilized as either a primary level instrument for high or low level alarm detection or as a secondary instrument to provide redundancy.
