Storage Tank for Liquid Materials

Continuous measurement and point level detection in liquid material storage tanks.

Application

Storage tanks are used to store a variety of liquids including crude oil, gasoline and diesel as well as other alkaline solutions. Proper monitoring of level not only prevents overfills, but also helps ensure these tanks never run empty. Maintaining adequate level within in these tanks is important in maintaining production.

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 for either primary or secondary high or low level alarm indications.
